Unusual Restaurants – Our Top Five

It is National Eating Out/In Week! If you’re eating out this week, why not pick somewhere a bit different. If it’s a new experience you’re after, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite unusual restaurants from across the country.

Dans Le Noir

Quite possibly the most unusual of our unusual restaurants, Dans Le Noir takes a unique yet surprisingly simple idea, and executes it perfectly. Dans Le Noir is located in Clerkenwell, near to the heart of the city and can seat up to 60s guest in its pitch black dining room, the tables are served by blind waiters, able to navigate the tables with their naturally attuned hearing.

Circus

Part restaurant, part cocktail bar and part cabaret, Covent Garden’s Circus is an immersive dining experience where diners can enjoy their pan Asian menu, surrounded by the stylish and surreal interior and complimentary cabaret style entertainment.

Garlic and Shots

This really does what it says on the tin-Soho’s Garlic and Shots is home to an entirely garlic saturated menu, as well as an impressive collection of 101 shots, including the now famous Bloodshot, a mix of vodka, tomato juice, garlic and chilli.

Alma De Cuba

Alma De Cuba is a Latin American restaurant set inside a fantastically renovated former catholic church in the heart of Liverpool. They even do a Sunday brunch service accompanied by a live gospel choir.

Blackfriars

Blackfriars, one of Newcastle’s most famous restaurants, is set inside an old dominican friary dating back to 1239. Alongside their standard menu Blackfriars hosts several medieval theme banquets throughout the year, allowing guests to experience a sumptuous medieval feast, complete with themed menu and entertainment in a candlelit hall.

Pharrell Williams: Fashion Collaborations

Almost every season, designers announce that they are collaborating with other designers and familiar names on a new collection. Musician and designer Pharrell Williams has collaborated several times throughout the years on collections.

Here at Zee & Co, we are pleased to stock Billionaire Boys Club, and G-Star Raw For The Oceans.

G-Star Raw For The Oceans

Denim masters G-Star RAW and Pharrell Williams joined forces in September 2014 to present G-Star Raw For The Oceans-a collection that focuses on using recyclable materials from the ocean. Not only are both Williams and G-Star using recyclable materials in their design, but they are raising awareness of the impact rubbish dumping in seas can have on our environment.

Billionaire Boys Club

Created by Pharrell Williams and Japanese fashion icon Nigo, the designer behind ‘A Bathing Ape’ in 2005, Billionaire Boys Club is one of the most successful fashion partnerships in recent times. The collection has a contemporary urban feel, with bright colours and bold prints designed to make the wearer stand out from the crowd.

Billionaire Boys Club recently collaborated with New Era on a range of hats too, like these two beanie hats, seen below.

Adidas 

One of Pharrell’s latest collaborations is the one between himself and sports giants Adidas. A limited run collection, his designs embrace neon colours, interesting materials (we love the tennis ball trainers!) on a range of jackets, trainers and more. Here’s a few of his designs.
