Ukiyo’s Kraken Den is the new Private Dining Experience which includes dinner on an East Asian set menu (for 8-10 guests) and use of the room’s karaoke, laser lighting and Bluetooth sound system for up to 3 hours. Pass the mic, and the cocktail list!

If you want to just turn your brain off and relax for a few hours then there are plenty of brilliant films in the cinema right now.

Love music? Check out Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour Movie or want to show some grá for the Irish, you can watch Foe which stars Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal.

If you want to get into something meaty, Martin Scorsese’s new film which stars Leonardo Dicaprio, Killers of the Flower Moon is out now.
