WILLY WONKA Pop Up Dinner:
Want a night of sweets, fun, wonder, and magic? Then this is the dinner for you!
The WILLY WONKA Dinner Experience:
As guests arrive they will enter into Wonka's steam room to take an interactive tour of the distillery. Check in at our Emporium receptionist area, sign our Wonka extra long contract, then head straight on over to the Bubble Bar. Enjoy the open bar with unexpected combinations, fizzy wizz drinks, and Wonka's latest concoctions. While our Chefs prepare dinner, test out your candy skills with your friends by trying out our candy coded tasting challenge. Enjoy passed appetizers straight out of Wonka's Testing Room and laugh with tastings of helium liquors.
After cocktail hour has concluded, guests will move into our version of the Great Glass Elevator, also known as the Overlook and Wonka's Wonder Hall. In the Wonder Hall you can clearly see downtown Louisville, the starry sky, and clouds above while sitting at wacky Wonka designed private dining tables. Enjoy modern remakes of the classic songs from the movie, while oompa loompas roam around the floor. Chefs will bring out 5 courses each tying into the iconic Wonka style, and in between courses guests can enjoy funny moments with the oompa loompas and sample paired tastings of Rabbit Hole product.
To conclude the night, attendees can take pictures with the oompa loompas, chefs, and enjoy the Wonder Hall view.
Enjoy a little slice of wonder with this child-like getaway experience.
