Dine with a difference in former gun factory
Adventurous visitors to the capital can soon enjoy one of the stranger party venues in London, a converted grade-2 listed former gun factory.
Opening on November 22nd, the month-long pop-up restaurant is run by The Disappearing Dining Club and offers a "four-course exploration" in the venue, which now serves as a fashion concept store.
"Each floor is a course," explained the group. "Welcome cocktails are followed by mini-winter soups and potted meats in menswear, a second floor East End boys club that tells the story of Moderne Buckles, the previous occupiers of the building, and front for a network of illegal gun suppliers."
Main meals will be served in the ladieswear section, with "great wine choices" and a large sharing table, featuring giant cast iron hot pots of coq au vin, cassoulet and vegetable stews.
"Desserts are in the Bunker Cafe with hot doughnuts, spiced rum and mince pies, British cheeses and dessert cocktails with drinking, DJs and late night fun till midnight," added the organisers.
Additionally, guests at central London hotels can take advantage of the late night opening to do some shopping, with a ten per cent discount on everything in the store.
The Disappearing Dining Club is an organisation that hopes to gather like minded people to enjoy great food and drink in reclaimed or unusual places in London.
"We throw our own dinner and drinks parties, host private events, look after weddings and all kinds of art and music shows in empty warehouses, forgotten rooftops, hidden basements, secret galleries, private gardens and anywhere else we can find," the group remarks.
