Damien Hirst and the British chef Mark Hix will open next week, on the 23rd of February, their new restaurant hosted in the artist’s Newport Street Gallery, located in Vauxhall, London.

The name of the restaurant, Pharmacy 2, refers to another restaurant designed by Hirst, Pharmacy Restaurant & Bar, situated in Notting Hill, and to the artist’s installation with the same name, unveiled in 1992.

“Pharmacy 2 combines two of my greatest passions; art and food. I’ve always loved mark as a chef and his approach to food, so it’s great we’re working together on this,” said Hirst.

Pharmacy 2 features a playful interior design with colorful pill patterns embroidered on chairs and sofas or inserted in the marble floor, glass surfaces imprinted with DNA strands and many of Damien Hirst’s famous artwork as the butterfly Kaleidoscope and Medicine Cabinets.

 “While Newport Street Gallery is the realisation of Hirst’s long-term ambition to share his art collection with the public, Pharmacy 2 gives visitors the opportunity to view some of Hirst’s own art”, is said on the restaurant’s website.
