Warner Bros has announced a Batman-themed “immersive restaurant experience” to open in London, with rooms inspired by Harley Quinn and The Penguin.

Park Row is set to throw open its doors in the capital during the spring and will allow visitors to “dine in style and find a slice of Gotham in Soho”.

The restaurant is named for the area of Gotham City which is traditionally home to many of the Batman universe’s most dangerous villains and contains the alleyway in which Bruce Wayne’s parents were shot dead.

According to Forbes, the 18,000 square-foot building will feature three bars and five dining environments with prices starting from £45 per person.

Guests are set to enter through a recreation of the Batcave before experiencing the opulence and criminality of Gotham.

The venues include the Penguin-inspired Iceberg Lounge, speakeasy Old Gotham City, a Harley Quinn sushi bar and a restaurant named for Batman’s butler Alfred Pennyworth.

The Iceberg Lounge is the largest of the experience’s venues, featuring a circular bar and an ice sculpture of a penguin in tribute to the iconic villain — who will be played by Colin Farrell in the upcoming The Batman.

Robert Pattinson is set to take on the role of Bruce Wayne in The Batman, which is likely to step away from the established continuity of Ben Affleck’s take on the character in the DC Extended Universe.

Gotham has seldom been off movie screens in recent years, appearing in Joker — which recently won Joaquin Phoenix a Best Actor Oscar — as well as the colourful, chaotic Birds of Prey, which is currently in cinemas.

Despite strong reviews from film critics, Birds of Prey has struggled at the box office, debuting with just $33m (£25.5m) in its domestic opening weekend — the lowest DCEU opening number.

Park Row is a collaboration between Warner Bros, DC Comics and Wonderland Restaurants.
