In primary school, we’re constantly asked the age-old question: what do you want to be when you grow up? The girls in the class would always reply with princesses, mermaids or fairies, while the boys would bark about their longing to become a stealthy superhero, namely Superman. As much as we’d all love for these dreams to come true, spending our day saving the world one heroic act at a time, it’s never been much of a reality. Until now.
If your dream was the latter, you’ll be able to revel in all of your childhood glory as you dine at the speed of light at the fully immersive DC-inspired restaurant coming to London.
Arriving on the scene this 10th August, this is something that even The Joker might be a fan of. Watch as your favourite comic book characters come to life as Park Row opens its doors to eager DC fans next month.
Park Row, set to open on Brewer Street in Soho, will bring to life the crime ridden city of Gotham through memorable interiors, striking dishes and a dining experience unlike any other.
From the moment you step inside you’ll be thrusted into Batman’s very own Batcave. Inside the 18,000sq ft venue are a number of restaurants and bars, all centred around a different notable DC character.
It will bring to life the crime ridden city of Gotham through memorable interiors, striking dishes and a dining experience unlike any other.
The main draw will be The Monarch Theatre, where you’ll be able to try a £195 11-course tasting menu inspired by the DC hero himself, Batman. The menu has been carefully staged, drawing on influences from the much-love comics and characters. Expect dishes to include a ‘poisonous’ mushroom made from parfait, as well as caviar, oysters and scallops.
Next up is Pennyworth’s, a relaxed dining area, aptly named after Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred. It’s here you’ll be able to sample classic cocktails, fine caviar and try Inishtree single malt whisky in an art deco setting. Then there’s the Iceberg Lounge, set to be the ‘coolest’ place in Gotham City, serving up fresh fish, live entertainment and cocktails.
There’s also a late-night bar, Old Gotham City, that’s said to be inspired by the studies of Dr Pamela Isley and Dr Jonathan Crane.
We can Harley (Quinn) wait for this opening, and you’ll be glad you know, that’s the last DC related pun for the article (Jok-ering). But, damn, we hope there’s going to be Puddin’.
Park Row opens 10th August on 77 Brewer Street, Soho, W1F 9ZN
