Gerald Scarfes Exhibition

On friday morning we got up around 8, had some breakfast and then started to get ready for the day. We left the hotel and met up with Ole, Philip, Laila and Anne Marie. We got on the underground that took us to the area where we would find Gerald Scarfes exhibition.
We were a bit early, and since we had to wait for Matt to join us, we visited London museum in the meantime. I've never been to London museum before, but it was a great museum! It's also for free, so will recommend everyone to see it when in London.
We entered the Barbican Library where the exhibition was. The exhibition was for free, and was up between 5th of september and 31st october.
In this exhibition you could see a lot of Scarfes work over the years. Even though I had most focus on all that was Pink Floyd related, there was other works from him as well.
I will not write too much about this exhibition, I prefer putting up a few pictures for you to see yourselves.

After the exhibition we got back on the tube that would take us to a area called Holborn, where there was a bar called Scarfes bar. I felt I had to go there! I'd only heard about the bar a few days ahead, and knew this should be a stop on this London trip.
We found the bar, and as soon as you walked in, you knew you'd come to the right place. There were Gerald Scarfes drawings on the wall. We found a place to sit, and then we ordered something to drink. The prices for a drink was much similar to prices you pay in Norway - very expencive!!
I found a drink that was called "Gerald's Marguerite". I had no idea what it would taste like, but it had the right name. And it was indeed a good drink!
Gerald's Marguerite, awesome napkin and Pink
The napkins you got under your drink had a great design, so I of course had to bring a few of those back home as souvenirs.
I walked around in the bar to take a few pictures and just admire this amazing bar.
If you are in Holborn - take a drink at Scarfes bar! You will not regret it.
