As guests arrive, they will enter a lit-up evening jungle, with surprises around every corner. Check in at the Banshee Forest receptionist area and head straight on over to the jungle lounge and bar. Enjoy the open bar with glowing drinks, crystal ice, and tropical flavors. While our Chefs prepare dinner, enjoy mingling with some of the locals, practice your skills in battle with a VR shooting game, and visit the jellyfish light forest. While you wait for dinner, taste some passed appetizers and take a break on the mossy jungle-floor furniture.

After cocktail hour has concluded, guests will move into the heart of the jungle to enjoy their main dining experience. Guests will be seated under the glowing willow tree located in the middle of the stage and will witness amazing light features on the walls, ceiling, and the glowing tropical table they are seated at. Surrounded by the immersive sounds of the forest and creatures all around you, you will get lost in the world of Pandora.In between courses, enjoy performances from the locals and their favorite songs.

About the Experience

Step into the story and dine in the immersive worlds and destination spots, created by Michaelis Events! Featured at iconic concert spaces and venue halls, located around Louisville KY. As guests walk into each Pop Up Chefs Dinner story they will be greeted at the door with performances and unique designed installations that make them feel as though they are entering into a fantasy realm.


Each stage holds surprises as the story unfolds. After arriving, guests will be led further into the story starting in the cocktail space with styled passed appetizers, a themed bar and lounge, as well as interactive activations, custom to each story.


After cocktail hour, attendees will progress even further by entering into the main dining experience. Here, the space completely transforms into the main plot of the story. Guests will feel as if they have entered the world itself and are dining in the middle of a set of a movie. Michaelis Events Chefs, as well as Louisville's well known Guest Chefs, will present five different courses throughout the rest of the evening-- each course complementing the next. Performances, as well as surprise elements, are featured in between each course.


To conclude the story, guests of each dinner get to take home a luxury story bag featuring elements of the night as well as new information of events to come.



***Seats for each dinner are limited to 60 people per night. Dinners are not replicated and are truly a one time experience!
