What’s all this then?

Have you family down in Sydney? Well imagine being able to celebrate a Christmas dinner with your loved ones down under, even if you are about 17,000km apart. You might not have to imagine for too much longer because Samsung and Three have come together to create an exclusive dinning experience that will be able to bring Dublin and Sydney together. For 4 days only from 29 Nov to 2 Dec, the pop up restaurant is offering people the chance to have this unique, interactive experience with those of us who buggered off down to Australia.

One half of the restaurant will be based in Dublin while the other is going to be down in Sydney and with a menu that’s designed with the time differences incorporated you could be having your dinner while your sister eats breakfast. It’s a really interesting concept and while this is only a 4 day pop up trial wouldn’t it be cool to have the ability to have dinner with mates in New York, Dubai or wherever else the Irish have vanished to down the years.

But I could just FaceTime or Facebook call them while I am eating? Yeah, theoretically sure you can but it won’t be half as interactive, the whole idea is that it’s like going for dinner with the actual person, not just eating on a video call. It’s called class people, not that we’d know anything about that but we’ve been told. Oh, and we did mention dinner was free here right?

Where is it?

The Irish pop up will be based on Clarendon St, Dublin 2  (just by the Westbury Hotel) and in for those of you with family in Australia, the Sydney restaurant is on 65 Holt St.

How do I get a table?

As we said a couple of times now, dinner is free so that means the place is sure to be packed over the 4 days and places will be limited. To be in with a chance of dinning all tech style, all you have to do is request a table through the Connected Restaurant website.

Literally click on the city – which we will assume is Dublin, fill in the form and hit enter. Then wait to see if you are lucky enough to get a table.
