The phrase ‘cooking up a storm’ will take on a new meaning as an immersive restaurant opens where you quite literally enjoy your food within a storm. Inspired by the perfect storms that form over the tempestuous ocean waters that the Mighty Kraken Beast calls home. After donning your waterproof macs, you'll take your seats at the restaurant’s long, communal table – around which the storm experience takes place.
Not for the faint of heart, or those that mind getting wet: 1,000 litres of rain will cascade from the ceiling every minute*, high-powered wind machines will bellow cyclonic winds through the rain and lightning flashes overhead will be accompanied by the ominous blasts of thunder! That said, landlubbers should not fear too much, as The Benevolent Beast has ensured diners won’t get completely soaked… After all, Kraken cocktails are best served without an added measure of rain water!
Indeed, after an intense period of indoor weather, the Kraken’s brave diners will enter the ‘eye of the storm’ – an unsettlingly calmer period where the winds drop and the rains subside. From here you'll be served a delicious jet-black menu of dishes crafted using naturally black ingredients and natural black food colouring.
Guests will be able to choose between the following options for their starter and main -
Pickled seafood (baby squid, octopus, cockles) hijiki seaweed salad with black crustacean gel
Black nori rolls with kale and green beans (vegan)
Squid ink linguini, prawns, squid rings, heritage tomatoes
Black garlic gnocchi
The famous Kraken Black Ice Cream will be available at the bar for those with a sweet tooth.
A special menu of delicious Kraken cocktails will be served up alongside the food, headed up by The Perfect Storm cocktail, with several other surprises in store.
At the end of your meal, you'll leave the banquet table and can continue your evening from the dry environment of the restaurant’s bar, enjoying Kraken cocktails while watching the storm spectacle unfold for another group of diners.
The price of dinner includes all food and four cocktails. The restaurant has a single, long table that can seat up to 15 people and is a communal dining experience. Each storm-dinner sitting lasts for approximately 60 minutes.
For those who doubt they could face the storm head-on, but would still like to visit the bar there will be a very limited number of drinks-only tickets available.
