The Monarch Theatre at Park Row
About this space
Perfect for brand events, we can tailor the screen to any video or gallery and match food and drink if required. The space also has its own private bar.
The Monarch Theatre is a 20-seat venue serving a ten-course tasting menu with drinks subtly paying homage to some of DC universe’s most iconic Super Heroes and Super-Villains. Dishes by Exec Chef Karl O’Dell (formerly of Michelin-starred Texture) take guests on a culinary and visual journey with the help of floor-to-ceiling screens and 360-degree projection mapping. Truly a one-of-a-kind gastronomic show, with carefully crafted staging and immersive courses that play with the senses – Gotham City, nor London for that matter has ever seen anything quite like it.
Created by Park Row founder James Bulmer, The Monarch Theatre experience is designed to trigger specific emotions through the environment of the room and the food on the table which tie into the theatrical narrative of the evening. Highlights include a ‘poisonous’ mushroom made from a rich and earthy parfait; a decadent scallop, oyster, caviar and white chocolate dish topped with gold leaf; a USDA Black Angus tenderloin with truffle fit for the Bruce Wayne dinner table; and edible jewelry.

About Park Row
Describing itself as a fully immersive gastronomic experience, Park Row is a DC comics-themed restaurant on Soho’s Brewer Street which restaurant geeks may remember as Marco Pierre White’s Titanic and was until recently the Danish steakhouse Mash.
The venue is stunning, a grade-II listed Art Deco room, perfect for filming with a variety of subtly themed areas, which if you didn't know it was DC-inspired, you'd miss it altogether. Named after an area of Batman’s fictional hometown Gotham City, Park Row consists of five different dining areas, all offering different styles of food and drink; what they all have in common however, is that they take their inspiration from the iconic characters and stories from DC. From Harley Quinn-themed food to a lounge inspired by Batman villain The Penguin, everything at Park Row is geared towards fun.
Set in a grade II-listed building which was originally part of The Regent Palace hotel, the multi-room space is as art deco-tastic as Gotham City itself. Featuring a secret entrance modelled on the Batcave, which leads you into the main dining room, the excitement begins from the moment you step inside.
The first area you see when you emerge from the Batcave is Pennyworth’s – named after Batman’s butler Alfred Pennyworth – serving classic British dishes inspired by history. If you want something a bit more immersive, head over to the Monarch Theatre which offers a multi-sensory tasting menu complete with 360-degree projections while you’re eating.
Suppose you’re more about drinking and chilling out. In that case, Park Row has plenty to offer in that department too with speakeasy Old Gotham City serving creative cocktails and offering projection mapped walls similar to The Monarch. Alternatively there is The Penguin’s large Iceberg Lounge which serves guests a variety of different drinks and international food, whilst also benefitting from live entertainment. Park Row promises to be a great all-rounder even if you’re not a DC fan.
