At 2024, an immersive fantasy-themed restaurant will open in the home of Dungeons & Dragons. The Griffin & Gargoyle is a projected 350-seat restaurant in Lake Geneva, which is best known to D&D aficionados as the home of Gary Gygax, one of the co-creators of Dungeons & Dragons, and the headquarters for original D&D publisher TSR.
The restaurant would cast actors to play various characters in a scenario that would unravel over the course of a meal. Visitors can come merely to eat, or they can tour the restaurant area and learn about the fictitious explorers who created the restaurant by engaging with the staff and seeking for clues buried in the building.
Each room would have a different theme based around different D&D classes and tropes. In addition to a restaurant is an axe-throwing range called “The Barbarian in the Basement,” a ‘secret’ game store called “The Library,” and a steampunk-themed mixology bar called “The Gnome Alchemist.”
Also included at the restaurant are private game spaces where visitors can hire a professional Dungeon Master to guide them through their first D&D session, as well as a gift shop. An event and wedding facility would also be located at the site.
