We all know the phrase to sleep with the fishes but how about something a little more appetising? Deliveroo is teaming up with the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham to let Brits eat with the fishes. The underwater dining experience, believed to be the first of its kind in the UK, launches this week in the UK’s second city, with plans to be rolled out to additional Sea Life sites including Manchester and Blackpool in 2020.
Brits can book a one hour sitting via the link on the Sea Life website, with all proceeds of the evening being donated to The Sea Life Trust, who support projects around the world that protect marine wildlife and their habitats.
Guests will be sitting in the UK’s only 360 Ocean Tunnel, where they can enjoy food from some of Birmingham's favourite restaurants. Perfect for families or those looking to take their date night game up a notch, diners can choose between Mission Burrito, Han Dynasty, Slim Chickens and Smashburger.
The experience will be open for bookings this week on October 1st & 2nd. Each table booking costs at £20, which includes entry and 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 breath-taking, 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 and we’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.
