First Official ABBA Restaurant to Open
The first ever official ABBA restaurant is set to open in Stockholm, Sweden on January 20, 2016. Björn Ulvaeus is creating a “Mamma Mia!” themed Greek taverna which will be “part restaurant, past stage show and part role play.”
The ABBA legend told The Local: “My vision is that this Greek taverna will be like a Mamma Mia bubble where people can just have a bloody good time. I can see the audience in front of me, how they’re laughing and singing along and having loads of fun. I want to create the same party spirit that’s the musical is so known for.”
Hopefully, the idea becomes successful so they can franchise it all over the world.
Mamma Mia! The Musical has been seen by over 55 million people and the movie adaptation grossed $608 million worldwide.
