Ever thought of challenging social conventions, but most of all, table manners? Not having to care about being polite, nice and all that nonsense? Here's your chance to do that, with the Unconventional Dinner, a pop up event that will free you from all social constraints. 

How about starting with a main being served from a cement mixer machine? And wouldn't you love the liberating feeling that comes with breaking plates on the floor while everyone is dancing on the tables at the sound of an old hand crank manual operated air raid alarm? A very peculiar waiter will welcome you to a no cutlery, no manner and no frills dinner.


A unique pop-up experience that will challenge table manners and social conventions through food! Barrel & Forks is a collaboration between Art Curator Francesca Nannini and Restaurant Owner Alex Gravili.

Barrel & Forks creates unforgettable dining experiences by presenting art themed dinners in unusual and magic locations around London.

For the Unconventional Dinner, Francesca and Alessandro will dress up a secret space in London, a theatrical stage with an interactive food installation  that will immerse diners in the ultimate alternative dining experience.

This really was very unconventional - in the best way! I took my boyfriend there and we had a crazily hilarious evening. The food was really good too! The way they served the wine was the best part! Visited Secret Location on 2015-10-16
