Food is the essence of life! Themed restaurants are great places to wine, dine, entertain and even introduce new cultures to friends and contacts.
Unique themed restaurants are housed in colonial-era buildings or places with important places in history, such as old hospitals, almost-forgotten chapels and grand mansions. A common feature of themed restaurants is their exclusive locations, away from the main roads and crowds. This gives them the element of high-society feel, where diners are expected to adhere to respectable dress codes to better enjoy the priceless tranquility and unique décor. Themed restaurants set the stage for diners to enjoy a leisurely meal in the midst of a fantasy world, complete with black-suited service and gorgeously-plattered food.
One such famed themed restaurant is uniquely located on a hill, amidst lush greenery and a spacious garden, perfect for guests to walk around and mingle with other diners. An exclusive private setting transports its guests back in time to a period of starry dreams and opulent romance. Clean, white walls provide the best backdrop for mood lighting, while wide, sweeping staircases and European-style fountains bring about a sense of royalty and beauty from a bygone era. High ceilings with black beams and comfortable, red velvet armchairs almost make diners question if they are at the restaurant for its food or its ambience. Crystal chandeliers light up pristine, white covered tables with spotless white plates, silver cutlery and twinkling wine glasses, in a silent invitation to the valued guests to take their seats.
Al-fresco dining in the lush, green lawn allows diners a once-in-a-lifetime experience of dining under the stars on good-weathered nights. Brown rattan chairs with low side tables for drinks and bar bites complete the ambience for a night of relaxation and enjoyment. With the occasional string quartet playing heavenly pieces of music by their sides, diners are sucked into a world of priceless elegance and sweet romance.
Another amazingly unique themed restaurant lies within an old chapel, beautifully restored to its past grandeur with its glass-stained windows, high ceilings and whitewashed walls. Simple flooring, coupled with round wooden tables and minimalist table setting, support the ambience of peace and class in honour of the restaurant’s past identity. With its simple colours of white and brown for its furniture and cushions, warm tealights placed on the tables and small trees sprouting between tables, it is a dining experience to be revered.
Themed restaurants need not always be elegantly sweet. Thoughtful designing revamped the interior of an Art Deco building to recreate the feel of 1930s Shanghai, complete with oozing sultry elegance and high-class glamour. Framed by a black, almost unnoticeable door, the interior display of bar chairs, hanging ball lamps and signature gold décor add a sophisticated feel to what used to be a busy banking hall, bringing its diners back to a time defined by earnest globalisation and buzzing excitement. The dimly-lit private dining room, conveniently tucked away in a corner of the premises, adds a touch of private elegance to the guests who are fortunate enough to dine under handpicked decorations that are masterpieces in their own right.
Diners today embrace not just good food but also, more importantly, a memorable dining experience contingent upon exquisite décor and impeccable service. Themed restaurants gain strong followings easily with the unique experiences they offer. Wine, dine and enjoy!
