IKEA opening in-store Pop-Restaurant locations called The Dining Club

As reported on Popuprestaurants.com, IKEA, global purveyor of inexpensive interior design and furniture, is taking their in-store restaurants a step further, and are launching some as pop-ups for customer use, and called “The Dining Club”.

As reported by FORTUNE Magazine, “Ikea announced this week it will open a pop-up restaurant in the company’s Shoreditch, London location where diners will build their own meals in the sense that they’ll serve as the chef, preparing food for their group of friends and family. Called “The Dining Club,” Ikea’s new experimental restaurant will open for two weeks in mid-September.”

Timeout London also reports, “With the help of IKEA food experts, you’ll choose the menu, with everything from ceviche to carpaccio, smoked fish to pork belly and white chocolate cheesecake or Rull Tårta (that’s a Swedish Roly Poly, for the uninitiated) for dessert.

We look forward to seeing if IKEA’s Dining Club popups go global too.

The Pop-up Playbook from Eventbrite

Our good friends at Culintro have brought to our attention that our great friends at Eventbrite (which we use for all of our direct event ticket sales), have created a nice how-to for restaurants and bars considering holding their own pop-up event.

The compilation is called the Pop-up Playbook, and collects the advice of several experts for you to use. (BTW, they did not call on us, which is of course an oversight since we also manage PopUpRestaurants.com).

It also includes a Toolkit to help you organize your popup event, such as this Popup Report on ‘experiential dining.’

The Ceviche Project is a pop-up culinary and cultural experience that brings together people, music, and Michelin star restaurant–caliber ingredients in a communal and one-of-a-kind dining experience that features innovative takes and artful, never-repeated seafood dishes.

The Ceviche Project, DeLeón Tequila, and Skybar at Mondrian are teaming up to showcase Founder Octavio Olivas’ varied experiments with ceviche and its many variations, as well as tiraditos, oysters on the half-shell, and crudo preparations:  featuring fresh and premium offerings from fish and farmers markets alike.

While guests can expect culinary delights to be the centerpiece of their experience, Ceviche Project is a true celebration of all things summer in Los Angeles: one that brings together a unique mix of in-the-know locals and chic vacationers looking for something new and exciting to share during dinnertime.

Each dinner will kick off with DeLeón Tequila tasting followed by dinner featuring five new dishes paired with handcrafted cocktails from DeLeón, so each dinner is unique. Guests will eat, drink, converse, laugh, dance, learn, and engage, and Olivas will share stories about the origin and inspiration of each dish and paired cocktails.
