Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Architecture critic Nikolaus Pevsner described it as 'coarse in the extreme' but Centre Point's honeycomb-style concrete cladding gives this 33-floor, Grade II-listed building, designed by Richard Seifert and completed in 1966, a feeling of lightness unusual in London's tall buildings of the period. The building is occupied by a range of international companies. Paramount, a private members' club opened on the upper floors in 2008, followed by a bar and restaurant with spectacular views. Centre Point's integration at street level has always been somewhat problematic but the current development of a Crossrail station and rebuilt London Underground station at Tottenham Court Road will include a new public plaza outside Centre Point, with wider pavement, better cycling and improvements to bus services.
