Restaurant at the K20

Klee’s is a redesigned restaurant at K20 which opened in November 2012. It offers a special gastronomical concept: Modern cooking is combined with the traditional idea of tapas, which makes it the perfect place to go for dinner or 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 Düsseldorf Art 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.

Klee’s is open Tuesday until Thursday 10 am 7 pm, Fridays and Saturdays until sunset and Sundays 11 am 7 pm.

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 Tuesday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm, Saturday to Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm. Closed on Mondays.

Lunch specials and homemade cakes will be served.

Pardo’s may also function as an event location.
