Gastro-gaming concept coming to London next month
The world's first gastro-gaming concept, Oche, lands in London next month.
The tech-driven darts venue will serve a range of shared plates inspired by global cuisines, also offering cocktails and craft beers and wines. Due to open on 14 July at The Strand in central London, Oche will be the latest launch for The Social Gaming Group.
Already a globally renowned brand, The Social Gaming Group has sites across Norway, The Netherlands, Sweden and Australia, with the UK becoming its sixth location globally. It is backed by Norwegian IT investment company Karbon Invest.
An 'Oche' is defined as the line which players must stand behind when playing darts. By merging competitive socialising with a strong F&B offering, Oche introduces gastro-gaming in a world-first experience for guests.
The kitchen team includes Michelin-trained chefs, such as executive development chef Michael Lunga. Carefully curated menus will showcase modern European fare and Asian cooking.
"The Social Gaming Group is a tech company in hospitality to bring shared happiness to our guests and we are delighted to bring our proven Oche concept to London," comments Troy Warfield, CEO of The Social Gaming Group.
"Oche combines our technologically advanced gaming experience with exceptional curated dishes from Michelin-trained chefs, inspired by cuisines around the world, perfectly paired with uniquely distinctive cocktails, craft beers and wines. It's not about the game, it's about the experience."
