Café Royal to Offer Shakespearean Experience

Marking the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, the world’s greatest playwright, London’s Café Royal has curated a Shakespearean experience, named Midsummer Night’s Dreaming. Featuring the Grade II listed Tudor Suite, the new experience is available from June 17 to July 9, 2016.

Taking centre stage in the Grade II listed Tudor Suite is an original fireplace in the living room that celebrates the Elizabethan era. The space is finished by mock Tudor panels, Jacobean symbols, a beautiful marble dining table,a green velvet sofa and wooden panelling throughout.

In addition to an overnight stay in the Tudor Suite and a decadent three-course dinner at Café Royal’s Ten Room, guests will receive tickets to Henry V at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, only a short drive from the hotel. Café Royal guests will have premium seats for the star-studded production, which is directed by Donmar Warehouse associate director Robert Hastie and starring Olivier Award-winning actress Michelle Terry, in the role of Henry V.

 After an evening of high drama and excitement, guests can slowly make their way back to the hotel for a post-theatre cocktail at Green Bar. Finding inspiration in many of London’s local taverns and widely reported to drink rather heavily, Shakespeare often alluded to his love of drinking in his work. In honour of this, Café Royal has created a special Shakespeare cocktail that pays homage to the man himself.

For those wanting to stay a second night, Café Royal will offer a cosy movie night in the Tudor Suite’s very own TV room. With a choice of modern Shakespeare classic adaptations, guests will be treated to home-made popcorn and snacks in the comfort of their own suite.
