Restaurants have been widely considered to be permanent fixtures. They are those buildings on the high street that quite often look like they have been there forever. They have a kitchen hidden away behind no entry doors, where the waiting staff disappear with your order and re-emerge carrying your dinner.
You could be fooled into thinking that this sort of set up wouldn’t lend itself to a temporary setting. But when you think about it, all you really need are cooking facilities and somewhere for your guests to sit.
Pop up restaurants are becoming ever popular, so if you are planning one of your own it is just as important to come up with a unique selling point to make sure you don’t blend into the background. Consumers like an adventure or an event, so why not make your restaurant something they will want to tell their friends about.
In London’s Finsbury, there’s a new pop up restaurant in town and this one is a little different. Kitchen Party is the brain child of the organisers of the Bourne and Hollingsworth basement cocktail bar.
Kitchen Party will open its doors for three nights a week and after four months will disappear in to the ether. Different chefs and mixologists will be there to tantalise your taste buds with food and drink from around the world.
One of the main features f the instillation will be an imaginary train, which customers will board and sample a seven course meal representing all the train stops on the way, from Rangoon or Yangon, the former capital of Burma all the way to Kashmir, the northwestern region of India.
