12 Jan Holy Ginger & B&E Goulandris Foundation Museum
Athens’ new Basil & Elise (B&E) Goulandris Foundation Museum opened to the public on October 2019, showcasing works by Picasso, Chagall, Klee, Kandinsky, Rodin, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet, Miro, and Giacometti, as well as by prominent Greek artists including Bouzianis, Tsarouchis, Hadjikyriakos-Ghika, Moralis and Tombos.
Besides its permanent collection of 19th and 20th century art, the 11-storey museum, holds temporary exhibitions featuring the works of Greek and foreign artists. Furthermore, monthly cultural events, educational workshops, guided tours and screenings of short documentaries on individual artworks within the collection are offered. The museum, also, includes an art store, a 6,000-volume library, a children’s workshop, a 190-seat auditorium, maintenance workshop spaces, a garden, a rooftop café and a restaurant.
The restaurant, between the ground and first floor is an open, urban garden, the most contemporary version of an international Greek cuisine by distinguished Chef Andreas Lagos and the Ohh Boy Athens team. An honest, simple, lively environment, with authentic urban references, which honours the cultural space that hosts it and respects all visitors. The comprehensive menu takes full advantage of fresh ingredients, proving that the Greek simplicity and the value of the best raw materials can be found for coffee, breakfast, lunch or light dinner. Of course, Holy Ginger is on the menu!
