About :

Students from both courses will be be given full commercial control of the institute's training restaurant, training bar and training production kitchen for the week. The students take full responsibility for the menu planning, food ordering, purchasing, budgeting, sales, marketing and advertising, social media promotion and the operation of the kitchen and restaurant. In order to achieve this, the students are guided through the process by a team of lecturers in the Hospitality Department.

The aim of the pop-up is to give the students a unique real-life learning experience in order to plan, operate and effectively manage a series of food production and service cycles in a real-life situation. This gives students a new initiative within the Hospitality department and an exceptional approach nationally in the delivery of course modules.

There is a pay parking system in place at DkIT car parks so anyone parking must purchase a parking ticket, tickets cost 30c an hour or €2 for the day.

The event will be organised and hosted by students from DkIT so guests are asked to be mindful that it is a learning experience for the students. The pop-up restaurant aims to showcase the variety of skills that both classes have learnt during the three years studying at DkIT.  We hope to organise and host a fantastic event and experience for everyone to enjoy.
