In London, a Batman restaurant is about to open its doors...

Comics Movie
Batman fans are over the moon. In a few days, a restaurant dedicated to the Dark Knight will open in London. Get in your Batmobile, Fantrippers tells you more about this Batmanian place.

Eat in Batman’s restaurant

While the opening date is not yet known, many pictures and information are given to the dropper about this Batman restaurant. Located in the Soho district at 77 Brewer Street (Soho, London, W1F 9ZN), it already has a name: Park Row. This name refers to the place where Bruce Wayne’s parents were brutally murdered.

The restaurant is the result of a partnership between DC Comics, Warner Bros. and Wonderland Restaurants.

1600 m2, 5 restaurants and 3 bars

This gigantic Batman complex covers an area of more than 1600 m2. Although its façade is in Art Deco style, the interior is entirely decorated with objects reminiscent of the adventures of the Black Knight. It can accommodate hundreds of customers, thanks in particular to its 330 seats.

Visitors will soon be able to discover the five restaurants and three bars that make up Park Row.

The Pennyworth Restaurant

This first place refers to Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s faithful butler. Of his full name Alfred Thaddeus Crane Middleton Pennyworth, he is the only one who knows the true identity of Batman. After the death of the Wayne couple, he continues his service to Martha and Thomas’ adopted son. He first appears in the Batman #16 comics of April-May 1943.

In this restaurant, guests will be able to enjoy typical English food and dishes.

The Harley Quinn Zone

In this corner of the Park Row complex, visitors will be able to eat Asian dishes, including sushi.

It refers to the character created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm for the animated television series Batman, which aired in 1992. This doctor specialising in psychiatry is particularly known for the diabolical couple she forms with the Joker.

Penguin’s Iceberg Lounge

At the bottom of the stairs, guests will discover the Iceberg Lounge with a bar decorated by an ice penguin at its centre. If they wish to be more quiet, small round tables with four seats are placed on the periphery of the room. Shows will be given during the evenings. International dishes will be served in this place.

He’s referring to one of Batman’s toughest enemies. Appeared in Detective Comics #58 of December 1941, it was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Small in stature, Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot has a hooked nose and a wiggling gait, bringing him closer to a penguin.

The Monarch Theater

With video mapping, visitors will be immersed in the world of Batman. They will also discover a multi-sensory culinary experience.

The Monarch Theater is a reference in the universe of the Dark Knight. It was at the end of a broadcast of The Mark of Zorro in this cultural place that Bruce Wayne’s parents were murdered. This drama traumatized the young teenager and led him to become Batman.

Old Gotham City

This naughty speakeasy is the perfect place to sip cocktails, each more evil than the next.

The reference is strong for this corner of Park Row. Alan Moore described the birth of Gotham City in the comic Swamp Thing #53… According to him, it was founded by Captain Jon Logerquist, a Norwegian mercenary, in 1635. For his part, in Dark Knight, Dark City, Peter Milligan involves the American founding fathers in the construction of the city. But there is a final version, Batman:Gates of Gotham in 2011 involves the ancestors of Bruce Wayne, Alan, Oswald Cobblepot, Theodore, in the founding of the city.

A wide range of prices

With its five restaurants and three bars, Park Row is likely to attract a wide variety of customers, not just Batman fans. Nevertheless, it will cost between £45 and £130 per person to eat or drink (between €49 and €141).

Because of the Covid19 outbreak, there is currently no set date for the opening of the complex.

While The Batman, the Matt Reeves film starring Robert Pattinson was filmed in the British capital and is scheduled to be released in cinemas on June 23, 2021, you can find other filming locations of the Dark Knight movies in London thanks to our Fantrippers guide to 1000 cult places.
