Park Row London Monarch Theatre are you light or dark?

There are many restaurants within London but not many that are unique and themed so when I discovered about Monarch Theatre which brings a unique dining concept to your table I was super excited.

Monarch Theatre can be found within Park Row London which is London’s first ever DC inspired restaurant, which has been created by Wonderland Restaurants in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC.

For those who might be unfamiliar what DC means it is the largest and oldest comic producing company (a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery). They have given us characters from heroes to villains with super powers to our comics, books and screens. Characters such as  AquamanBatman, Flash, SupermanGreen Lantern, Wonder Woman, and so many more.

Monarch Theatre has focussed largely on Batman and the villains he has had to deal with throughout the comic series, TV and movies.

I went along on a press basis thanks to Monarch Theatre.

Park Row London Monarch Theatre

Opened back in 2021 Park Row brought to it’s doors Monarch Theatre for hungry diners who like a super experience to enjoy something that little different and magical.

Monarch Theatre is named after the Crime Alley neighbourhood of Gotham City, as the restaurant is themed on DC Comics popular superhero Batman and his enemies. You will take a journey of rich storytelling, from characters of good and evil and blurred lines in between.

From floor-to-ceiling screens and 360-degree projection mapping makes this experience one of a kind and one that you will never forget. All whilst being served a variety of culinary dishes whilst you are taken on a visual gastronomic show, which really does get all your senses buzzing.

All of the food has been designed by James Bulmer and Exec Chef Karl O’Dell (formerly of Michelin-starred Texture). James is the founder and CEO of Park Row and conjured up the idea over five years ago when he was approached by Warner Bros. to license the DC brand and create a premium immersive dining experience. With no one ever before attempting such an elevated themed restaurant concept he was proud to be involved. He spent most of lockdown fine tuning The Monarch Theatre, which seats 20 diners, from creating the menu and the magic which goes alongside each course.

Joker at the cinema

I walked through the entrance and sitting right in front of my eyes is The Joker sitting in a chair with 80’s 3D glasses on and eating popcorn (yellow lego bricks) with a spare chair next to him and a spare pair of glasses well what can I say but I am a kid and I just had to sit next to him, as “I’m Joanne, fun and silly at the same time”.

Behind the Joker was some benches and a small cinema screen which you could sit down and watch some movie shorts that star lego characters. Continue reading
