Labyrinth, the newly formed immersive company, is set to transport audiences to new, but well-known worlds, immersing them through in-depth storytelling, beautifully realised environments and exciting possibilities via its theatre productions, restaurants and bars.
From from the creative directors of Les Enfants Terribles, Oliver Lansley and James Seager, and the internationally renowned producers, Hunter Arnold and Gavin Kalin, Labyrinth will create, develop and produce a stable of imaginative shows with their new launchpad permanent venue, Labyrinth Waterloo at The Sidings.
Beginning with the opening of The Rosarium restaurant in September, then the return of Alice’s Adventures Underground alongside the Underland bar in November.
James Seager said, “Labyrinth will operate a world-class permanent home to the ever-flourishing immersive genre for the existing and new generation of theatre goers and experience seekers.
'Our content will place audiences at the forefront of every experience that crosses over our shows, our restaurants, and our bars. Labyrinth Waterloo underneath Waterloo Station is just the beginning and we’re very excited about what the global future holds.”
The Rosarium Restaurant (101 covers) will be a gastronomic adventure by Executive chef Harvey Ayliffe, who has developed a modern British menu, using exclusively British produce, with a wonderland twist.
It will incorporate performative and sense-heightening experiences including an Afternoon Tea and cocktail menu. The restaurant will include an indoor terrace and PDR (Private Dining Room) options.
On the menu, Executive chef Harvey Ayliffe said, “Having worked at some of London’s best restaurants, I wanted my next adventure to capture some of the fun, skill and playfulness of all that London has to offer, taking from its past as well as its fiction, for something truly magical.”
The interior design of the restaurant by Faber will follow suit by taking inspiration from the architecture of the quintessential English gardens of Lewis Carroll’s era, where opulence with a touch of the surreal blends to magical effect.
Underground bar (220 covers) will serve bespoke Alice’s Adventures Underground cocktails for those who want to book in for an experience, or simply to visit and enjoy classic wines, cocktails and beers.
