Finally, a pop-down, not pop-up restaurant

Here’s one pop-up experience that’s a little different from the rest: it pops down underground. Located in the Tytyri limestone mine in Finland, Helsinki bistro Muru will run the pop-down restaurant for just a fortnight in September. The experience includes donning mine helmets and traveling down a test laboratory lift to emerge at the venue 80 metres underground for a four-course meal at the active excavation site.
