The First-Ever Batman-Themed Restaurant Is Coming To London
You’d think that a Batman-themed restaurant would be located in Gotham, but as it turns out, London will be home to the first-ever restaurant inspired by the Dark Knight — not New York. The restaurant will be called Park Row, and it’s set to open in spring 2020 on 77 Brewer Street in London.
The restaurant, which is a partnership between Warner Bros. Consumer Products, DC, and Wonderland Restaurants, will feature three bars and five different dining environments, including rooms inspired by other popular characters from the Batman comics. The Iceberg Lounge, for example, will be dedicated to Batman villain Penguin, and there will also be a Harley-Quinn-inspired restaurant and Old Gotham City speakeasy. At 18,000 square feet, the place will definitely require multiple visits for super fans.
The restaurant will also be home to the Monarch Theatre, which revolves around a multi-sensory tasting menu that costs $155 per person and uses “projection mapping technology said to explore the psychology of heroism through food.”
According to a design and access statement obtained by Eater, “The proposed design continues the use of the space as a high-end restaurant. The restaurant will be rooted within the DC Multiverse, taking visitors on a culinary adventure through the many fictional Universes famous for their superhero residents such as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman…it has the intention to invite guests to experience the DC Universe without breaking the fourth wall — the imaginary wall that separates the audience from the performance.”
Few specific details are available about the restaurant right now, but you can sign up for the mailing list on the official Park Row website.
