The Barbican's bars and cafes offer a selection of drinks and snacks throughout the day and evening

Bars, level G & -1
With a large selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks, there's something to match your every mood. 

Foyer Cafe, level G & -1
Offering all of your freshly brewed favourites from the High Street, don’t forget to pick up your freshly baked cakes, sandwiches, salads, grab and go products and soft drinks. An equivalent cafe on level -1 opens one hour before performances and during intervals.

Don’t forget that you can still enjoy outdoor seating on the Lakeside, weather permitting.

Avoid the queues – place your drinks order before you even reach the venue with our free Barbican Bars app.
