I for one have always been a little envious when I’ve seen photos of travel bloggers dining underneath the water, surrounded by passing sea life.
Well it looks like Deliveroo & National Sea Life Centre have jumped onto this and have planned to bring the opportunity to life, as they launch Submerged Dining.
Popular food delivery company Deliveroo is teaming up with the National Sea Life Centre to let Brits eat under the watchful eye of fishes and all the other incredible sea life. And it looks like us in Manchester get to benefit from the opportunity as this unique underwater dining experience is set to launch at the aquarium in Birmingham, with plans to be rolled out to additional Sea Life sites including Manchester and Blackpool in 2020.
Brits will be able to book a one hour sitting through EventBrite, in which all proceeds of the evening will be be donated to The Sea Life Trust, who support projects around the world that protect marine wildlife and their habitats.
As the Birmingham launch is set to be the first, guests will enter the centre and be guided to the UK’s only 360 Ocean Tunnel, where they will be seated for their slot. They can then enjoy food from some of Birmingham’s favourite restaurants. It’s the perfect idea for families with children who have an interest in sea life, or of course, for those looking to take their date night game up a notch. Birmingham diners can choose between Mission Burrito, Han Dynasty, Slim Chickens and Smashburger.
The experience will be open for bookings on October 1st & 2nd. Each table booking will be costed at £20, which includes entry and your food.
Chris Coventry at the National Sea Life Centre said “From its location in the heart of the Midlands, the National Sea Life Centre really does provide one of the most breathtaking, immersive environments to enjoy a dinner date for two, so we’re excited to have teamed up with Deliveroo to offer the submerged supper club.
There really is nowhere else in the Midlands when you can eat pizza by the penguins or even have supper surrounded by a shiver of sharks, with them swimming underfoot as you tuck in!”
Joe Groves at Deliveroo said “Deliveroo launched in Birmingham four years ago andwe’re now working with over 800 local restaurants. The city’s Sea Life Centre in the perfect spot to launch our submerged supper club, with 360 views, giving locals an unparalleled dinner view to go with their delicious takeaway.”
Deliveroo is always looking to mix up the way people enjoy food, from helicopters across London to a replica Great Wall of China made of recycled Chinese takeaway cartons the food delivery giant loves to treat Brits to out of this world experiences.
