Have you had a unique dining experience lately?
Bom Banes of 24 St George St (just off St James Street) has been around for five years and if you have not gone – GO!! Go for the food, go for the people and go for the experience.
My friend invited me there to a musical theatre dining experience a week ago, I admit at first I was unsure however I like trying new things and being proved wrong. Wrong I was, what I saw was a brilliant life affirming performance called ‘The Musical History of 24 George St, Brighton.’ You are greeted and served dinner during the course of the evening by the performers who tell the delicate story of the ‘Bom Banes’ building the lovely quirky restaurant in which you sit.
On other nights it shows films, hosts musical gigs and comedic nights however tonight, on these nights, it performs a play about the previous inhabitants of ’24 George Street.’ The building and night glows with the character and creativity of a lovingly researched mix of performance, music and dining; the performers slip casually between the play and dinner service, building characters that fill the whole of the building itself.
And they don’t just do this event they do many events. Musical History will not back until the new year but many delights are in store. Notably for White Night ‘all white on the night’ dining (29th October 2011) all white food with songs with white in the title and many warm festivities bringing in the Christmas season. There’s always extra novelty from mechanical hats, to tables with their unique range of skills, ones that move up and down, ones that make music and a delightful table that houses a fully functioning model of the pier for you to play with.
Their evenings are full of delights and surprises, the team themselves add something beautiful to the history of this amazing house, so much so that when I left I thought about the stories that all houses have to tell if you want to look deep enough. And the food is really tasty. Visit them and find something that interests you http://www.bom-banes.co.uk/index.html
Stay for the food. Go for the food!
