A diner with singing waiters who will serenade customers with musical theatre songs will open in the West End this summer, by the Theatre Café’.
The performers will sing musical theatre numbers around the diner while people eat.
The diner, which will operate alongside the Theatre Cafe, will also host special events, and concerts.
Joe Davey, managing director and founder of the Theatre Cafe, said: “I am so excited to be launching the Theatre Cafe Diner in the West End. It’s been a tough few years for our industry, so we are delighted that the Theatre Cafe brand is expanding. The Theatre Cafe has grown so much from its beginnings as a family ticketing business, and we are delighted to be seen as a key beacon within the theatre industry. The diner is going to be an excellent companion to the Theatre Cafe, and I can’t wait to open the doors and for people to experience a diner like no other.”
Julia Wilkinson, restaurant director at property firm Shaftesbury Plc, described the initiative as an “experiential diner concept”.
“The brand’s dedication to showcasing popular West End theatre productions will perfectly complement its setting at the heart of London’s iconic theatre scene. We are confident that the theatre fans and food lovers from near and far will be eager to experience this vibrant new operator,” she said.
