Once an idea gets into the market it’s for everyone to use. It doesn’t matter if you did it first, what matters is who did it better. See Marvel and DC. DC did it first but Marvel took the cake. When Atari announced that they are going to make Video themed hotels. It sent waves throughout the industry. The idea was innovative and very unique and everyone was taken aback that nobody thought it first. And now DC is going to follow up its footsteps and create a Batman themed hotel.
Big Hospitality recently announced that a batman themed hotel titled Park Row is in works. Die-hard fans of Batman will be well aware of the fact that Park Row is the infamous place which witnessed the murder of Batman’s parents- Thomas and Martha Wayne. The very event that inspired Batman to become Gotham’s vigilante.
The establishment will have five restaurants and three bars with a total of 330 covers. The whole building will have various facets embodying Batman’s many features and important characters. Some of the characters that will find their way into the restaurant are Pennyworth, Batman’s trusted butler and a fan favourite, Penguin an iconic villain and Harley Quinn, a character made world famous by Margot Robbie.
The Penguin will be place serving international dishes and world class entertainment. Harley Quinn will inspire a very classy omakase restaurant. There will also be a cocktail bar inspired by Gotham city itself.
Wonderland Restaurant Group, which is run by James Bulmer and Mark Garston are the people who will conceive and develop Park Row. It will be their first project.
The timing is also very opportune as Matt Reeves’ Batman is also slated to release the next year. The movie will have Robert Pattinson in the titular role and feature Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman and Paul Dano as the Riddler.
