Galleria Illy

Italian coffee house illy has designed a caffeine-laced utopia for lovers of a good brew.

Following runs in great cities such as New York and Milan, Galleria is popping up in London for the first time to celebrate the intangible bond between science, culture and, of course, coffee.

Dive in and be enlightened by a programme of coffee, tea, chocolate and wine-tasting events – plus, learn how to make a good cuppa from an expert barista.

Additionally, a host of food gurus, such as Michelin-starred chefs Giorgio Locatelli and Viki Geunes, will give insightful talks.

All of this comes in an exhibition space festooned with African and Mediterranean-inspired art and installations, including the Mediterranean Mirror Table (pictured), and even art you can eat, thanks to Italian creator Michelangelo Pistoletto.
