The authentic classical music experience
Fidelio is an artistic project that brings together the magic of great music and authentic culinary creations into an informal, friendly and captivating environment. Recreating the atmosphere of the European early twentieth century salons, the Fidelio Cafe on Clerkenwell Road in London hosts the world’s most accomplished artists and emerging talent to create memorable experiences centred around classical music and great food.
The Fidelio project challenges the traditional approach to classical music performance and presentation. Our aim is to break down the barriers around classical music by centring the experience on the profound human connection which arises by bringing artists and audience together in closer proximity. Our vision is to create a dynamic community of enthusiasts, promoting music for its ability to bring people together over meaningful experiences.
Formats and offering
The Fidelio Cafe operates as coffeeshop and restaurant Monday to Friday 8am-4pm. Our coffee is a blend supplied by Catalyst Roasters and we serve it along a dynamic offer of breakfast and lunch prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients by our head chef Nick Dearsley.
On Mondays, on a fortnightly basis, Fidelio hosts live jazz sessions, giving music students and graduates the stage in the cosy cocktail lounge. Take a look at our cocktail list and food offer for these events.
Fidelio’s sexiest dish is the classical dinner-concert series. One hour concert from 7pm with dinner service starting from 8:30pm. Concerts are followed by three course menus curated by chef Matthew Parkinson.
