The All-In Kitchen lands in Bristol ahead of UKIPT
Let's face it you can't really go wrong when you combine poker with food, which is why PokerStars are bringing back the All-In Kitchen ahead of the UKIPT's return to Bristol later this month.
To celebrate the arrival of the 2015 UKIPT, PokerStars is teaming up with Tapas restaurant Pata Negra to recreate the world first "pay by poker" restaurant, which proved enormously popular when it appeared in London last Season when a ticket sold every three seconds. And did we mention that the food was excellent?
You'll find Pata Negra on Clare Street, Bristol, with the All-In Kitchen running from 27-29 July. And if you're not sure what all the fuss is about allow us to explain how it works.
Basically you get a chance to eat a fabulous three course meal for free, determined by your performance over three hands of poker. Win and you eat for free. Come second and you get a £10 discount, meaning you pay just £8. If you finish third you'll get a five pound discount, and pay just £13. That said even if you end up paying the full price you're getting great value on some delicious food.
So what exactly will you get to eat?
The mouth-watering partnership also sees Pata Negra curate a poker-themed menu. The gourmet feast includes: 'Big Blind Iberico Meats', 'Three Of A Kind Sweet Pepper, Courgette And Aubergine Skewer With Romesco Sauce' and 'The Pot - Dark Chocolate With Olive And Rosemary Shortbread'.
Nathan Lee, Founder of Pata Negra, said: "Collaborating with PokerStars to bring the world's first 'pay-by-poker' restaurant to Bristol is a really exciting prospect. We're looking forward to serving up a unique offering and seeing guests go all in to experience something completely new."
It's a good reason to get to Bristol early, ahead of the UKIP which runs August 6-9. The nation's biggest poker tournament will arrive at The Rainbow Casino, having already visited London, Nottingham and Marbella this year. The tour will then continue on to the Scottish and Irish capitals of Edinburgh and Dublin.
