New ABBA-themed restaurant brings singing and dining together

Must See 05/09/2018

If you've ever dreamed of running away to the other side of the world, eat Greek food and sing your problems away - then you'll love the sound of this new restaurant.

A new ABBA-themed restaurant is set to launch in London, created by ABBA's own founding member Björn Ulvaeus.

Called an "immersive theatrical dining experience", diners will sit in a recreation of a taverna on the island of Skopelos, where most of the first film was shot.

And while diners tuck into delicious Greek cuisine, a live immersive show plays out in front of them, playing the greatest of ABBA's hits.

The taverna can seat up to 500 guests and will consist of a courtyard with long tables, and features straight from the set, such as fountains, olive trees and bougainvillaea.

Diners are encouraged to sing along, and in fact will also get the opportunity to be involved in the song and dance.

The experience has already been enjoyed for three sold-out years in Stockholm, and will arrive at O2’s specially converted restaurant in London early next year.
