I’M DREAMING… OF A BLACK CHRISTMAS DINNER

A new pop-up Christmas experience launching this December is promising a mouth-watering dark twist on the ideal festive meal: the world’s first ever all-black Christmas feast.

Instead of the typical cranberry sauce-vermillion and Brussels sprout-green, guests at the Kraken Black Christmas experience will be presented with a beautifully crafted and utterly delicious Christmas roast with all the trimmings, made entirely of naturally-black, ethically sourced and responsibly grown foods. Served feasting style.

A rich, dark Christmas spirit will embrace diners as they sit at lavishly decorated banqueting benches, surrounded by black Christmas trees, gifts and wreaths. A dreamlike gentle snowfall will drift down towards guests from within the restaurant’s high arches throughout; a spectacular effect created by Olivier award-winning lighting designers magically completing the surreal experience.

Tickets to the Kraken Black Christmas, which are available for £25 also include three free delectable dark cocktails, which have been specially created for the occasion. Inspired by The Kraken Black Spiced Rum and all the magic, tastes and smells Christmas has to offer - with a Kraken twist using ingredients like activated charcoal, squid ink and toasted black sesame seeds: the Kraken Black Blitzen includes black forest liqueur and cranberry sauce for that Christmassy taste. The Kraken Midnight Frost Bite is filled with orange liqueur, lime juice and squid ink, creating a deep black cocktail and the Kraken It’s Cold Outside, a hot mulled cider with a Christmas twist – black charcoal. Also included in the ticket price is a wrapped gift for every guest to take home.

For those seeking to dip their toe in the darkly magical Christmas world of The Kraken but unable to stay for dinner, there are tickets to the Kraken Rum bar, also available via Billetto, which is open from 4pm until midnight each night. Bartenders will be serving up the festive Kraken cocktails for £5 each, and a selection of deadly delicious nibbles including nori chips, black pudding croquettes with black garlic mayo and black sesame macaroons.

Kraken Black Christmas is being held at Beagle, 397-400 Geffrye Street in Hoxton, London, E2 8HZ from Monday 5th to Wednesday 7th December. Dinner will be served at 7.30pm each night.
