Soon, Batman fans will be able to dine in a new restaurant experience themed around the Dark Knight. But here’s the twist — the dining will take place near the vicinity of the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents.
The new dining area will be named Park Row (also famously known as Crime Alley in the comics and movies), and it will be based in Soho, London. The exact location will be an 18,000 square feet area within an Art Deco building, and will consist of five restaurants and three bars, all sporting designs inspired by the Caped Crusader and his supporting cast.
The most notable among these is a restaurant serving British cuisine called Pennyworth’s, which is clearly a nod to Batman’s beloved Brit butler, Alfred Pennyworth. Another interesting locale is The Iceberg Lounge, which is named after the infamous home of The Penguin, which.
Other eateries within Park Row include the Old Gotham City cocktail bar, as well as a Harley Quinn-themed omakase restaurant (sounds like something Margot Robbie’s Harley would do after her stint in Birds of Prey).
“We are delighted to partner with Warner Bros. to create their first immersive DC-inspired gastronomic restaurant experience found anywhere in the world,” said James Bulmer, Chief Creative Officer of Wonderland Restaurants on the announcement of the Park Row restaurant experience.
“This is a project many years in the making, with every detail carefully thought out to deliver a unique experience for our guests. Trends in our sector are moving towards fun, immersive and experiential dining and our aim is to demonstrate this on a grand scale with exceptional food and drink to match. I am still a child at heart, inspired by the greatest stories and storytellers. For me, great food experiences are about unlocking guests’ emotions and creating edible memories.”
No opening date for Park Row has been announced yet.
And speaking of the Dark Knight, Matt Reeves’ The Batman is still in production, and is slated to open in theatres on 25 june 2021.
