Karen’s Diner cancels its tour in Leeds – but you can still get tickets for Hull

Karen’s may no longer be coming to our fair city, but it will pop up in Hull next month with a special bottomless service.

Karen’s Diner, the restaurant where diners pay for staff to be rude to them, is heading off on tour across the country after going viral for its colourful service.

Locals may well have already visited its Sheffield branch, where the staff are famously paid to be rude to you, and – if you dare – you are welcome to be rude back.

Those of us in Leeds have waited a long time for Karen’s to turn up here, with the diner originally set to pop up following its launch in Sheffield at the start of last year. However, sadly the plans never came to fruition.

We were teased once again this spring with the promise of a Leeds visit after news sources reported that Karen’s Diner would be stopping off in the city as part of its UK tour.

The date has since been removed from the Karen’s Diner tour website, suggesting that the Leeds tour date has been cancelled.

However, it’s not all bad news – because whilst Karen’s may no longer be coming to our fair city, it will be popping up down the road in nearby Hull with a special bottomless service.

The description for the tour on Karen’s website reads: “The wait is over, catch up with your Karen’s over cocktails, scrumptious grub and plenty of banter.

“Spill the goss and share the details as you tell your mates all about the office drama with your boss and Sally from HQ.. because we all know you’ve been dying to get that one off your chest, Karen.”

With tickets for the Hull date priced from £39.99, the event description reads as follows: “We’re coming to town on tour and well if y’all show up in force we’ll either come as a longer term pop up or simply just stay put for a while until we’ve insulted everyone in Hull.

“At our pop-up Karen’s you will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters who in return are expecting you to give it full Karen. A place where you can complain until the cows come home because we literally don’t care.

“You can expect good food, good fun and a dining experience like you’ve never had before. Let us know if it’s your birthday, if your name is Karen and for the love of Karen don’t ask to speak to the manager….

“Your ticket includes a Main Meal and Dessert and BOTTOMLESS drinks as well as select soft drinks drinks for a full 90mins.”

“You will get full and authentic Karen experience – our games, our waitstaff and the full works. Decent food was provided by the venue (we hope) and BOTTOMLESS booze for those who love a drink.
