Skulls, zombies, vampires, gore…and dinner: Saudi restaurant offers dining with a side of horror –

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is seeking a new path to bloom as a tourism destination and a business hub. So, it is rising up with new ideas and concepts. One of my Czech friends recently, posted on Facebook with her interest to consider KSA as a destination. As per I know, she flies to various countries including UAE. So, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would be a huge attraction in near future among travellers who never hesitate to experience exotic places. So, I decided to publish this Wion article about KSA.

A restaurant in Saudi Arabia is offering patrons in the conservative kingdom a unique experience, dishes with a side of skull and blood in the company of zombies and vampires.

Let’s take a look at exactly what the restaurant offers:

Needed: A strong stomach

The restaurant, “Shadows”, caters to horror film buffs with strong stomachs, allowing them to savour their dishes while staff in gory costumes put on interactive shows.

It’s located in the Boulevard entertainment district of the capital Riyadh and has opened as the Gulf country seeks to soften its image.

Actually very scary

“I came here to have fun and laugh… but the atmosphere and the shows are actually very scary,” one diner, Nora al-Assad.

“I’ve lost my appetite,” added the 26-year-old who works in human resources, as a waiter presented her meal on a tray with a smiling black skull.

Dinner and thrill

Jawaher Abdullah, a doctor, was more than thrilled to wolf down her dinner.

“I like horror in general… I think the atmosphere is great and lots of fun,” she said, before taking a selfie with a performer with a fake bleeding chest wound.

Scary fun

“Going to restaurants used to be about eating, getting full, chatting, and we’d go back home.

“But now we are eating, we are enjoying our time — and we’re also terrified.”

Changing dynamics

The rise of Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in 2017 has ushered many sweeping reforms, with the kingdom opening its doors to tourists in 2020. 

In the past, Saudis would have to go abroad for entertainment, but a social shift, including the opening of cinemas and mixed-gender concerts, has changed the local dynamic
