Warner Bros. has teamed up with Wonderland Restaurants to launch a new immersive Gotham City dining experience in London called Park Row.
“Holy fine dining, Batman!”
Warner Bros. has announced plans to team with Wonderland Restaurants to launch an immersive dining experience in London called Park Row. The once opulent area of Gotham City is more commonly known as “Crime Alley” and is a notorious area for poverty and criminal activity.
Launching this Spring on Brewer Street located in London’s Soho, Park Row will feature five bars and restaurants inspired by the world of Batman and Gotham City. You’ll enter through the Batcave, sample British cuisine at Pennyworth’s, and enjoy some drinks in The Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge before descending into Harley Quinn’s themed playful omakase. And if that isn’t enough, you can always check out the iconic Monarch Theatre where Thomas and Martha Wayne met their gruesome end.
Here’s the official line:
LONDON’S MOST ANTICIPATED OPENING OF 2020
PARK ROW SET TO OPEN IN SOHO THIS SPRING
Park Row, the first fully immersive DC-inspired gastronomic restaurant experience found anywhere in the world, will open in Soho this Spring on Brewer Street, featuring five restaurants and bars, storytelling and world-class food and drink.
Inspired by the timeless stories and iconic characters from DC including Batman, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Superman and The Penguin, Park Row will bring the spirit of Gotham City to life through contemporary, playful dishes, dramatic dining and stunning décor, offering an audience experience unlike no other.
Commonly known as ‘Crime Alley’, Park Row was once one of the most affluent neighbourhoods in Gotham City before it became a notorious area for poverty and criminal activity. Amid Gotham City’s hustle and bustle lies a hidden door to a gastronomic amusement park and a culinary production of discovery from start to finish.
Set within a breath-taking, Art Deco Grade II listed dining room, the setting is undeniably charismatic. After descending into the Batcave, guests emerge in the relaxed and elegant Pennyworth’s, named after Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred, where guests can choose from historically inspired British dishes. Or head to The Penguin’s opulent Iceberg Lounge, a large, stylish restaurant and bar with an international menu and live entertainment throughout the week. For top counter dining check out a Harley Quinn-inspired fun and playful omakase, whilst hidden away from the buzz of the main room lies Old Gotham City, a villainous speakeasy featuring clever cocktails alongside sharing plates. Book well in advance for the Monarch Theatre – Park Row’s exhilarating, multi-sensory tasting menu experience with 360-degree projection mapping technology to explore the psychology of heroism through food.
Chief Creative and Founder James Bulmer has surrounded himself with exceptional innovators to bring Park Row to life, demonstrating experiential dining on a grand scale never seen before. The menus have been curated together with a stellar-chef team including Cláudio Cardoso (Sushisamba), along with two chefs from three Michelin-starred backgrounds, Mike Bagale (Alinea, Chicago) and Mark Garston (The Fat Duck).
Park Row – London’s best theatrical dining experience. The less you know, the more fun you’ll have.
I don’t know about you, but I am itching to take a trip to Gotham City and immerse myself in some Batman-themed awesomeness. Needless to say, we will be first in line to get our first look at this incredible venue and give you the inside track. However, something tells me you’ll have to drag me away from the Batcave!
