Restaurant at the K20

Summer break at Klee's: closed until 26 August 2018
in the meantime – small catering at K20's entrance

Klee's is a redesigned restaurant at the K20 which opened in November 2012. It offers a special gastronomical concept: The symbiosis of modern cooking and a traditional tapas-idea makes it the perfect place to go for dinner as well as for a quick lunch. Sticking with the traditional architectural specifications, the style of Klee's unites modern, innovative design – new material and ideas – with classical elements.

The restaurant’s name is related to the artist Paul Klee, who taught at the Kunstakademie (Arts Academy) until 1933: The purchase of his works by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in 1960 led to the foundation of Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen.

Gastronomy at the K21

Recruited to furnish the creative redesign of Pardo's was Cuban-born artist Jorge Pardo, whose new décor encompasses walls and lighting. During the daytime, the café is enveloped in a cheerful soap bubble pattern consisting of orange and green tones. The green, interlocking shade lamps transform the space into a place with psychedelic overtones.

Pardo's is opened during the opening hours of the museum: Opened from Tue-Fri from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sat-Sun from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

Lunch specials and homemade cakes will be served.
Pardo's may also function as an event location.
