About Mamma Mia! The Party
Mamma Mia! The Party is a unique entertainment experience, including a stunning live show and a four-course meal, all set to the iconic music of ABBA. Created by ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus, this immersive event takes place at The O2 in London, which is transformed into the Nikos Taverna, a Greek island restaurant where our story unfolds. Your ticket includes a four-course meal while the show plays out around you and an Abba disco all in one unforgettable evening!
The story in Mamma Mia! The Party follows Nikos and his wife Kate and their family and friends as they run the exotic Nikos Taverna restaurant. The experience begins as soon as you enter the taverna, with the venue transformed into the idyllic Greek island of Skopelos – the setting of the first Mamma Mia! film. Enjoy being seated in the middle of the action as the heartwarming story unfolds around you, all while enjoying a gourmet Greek meal.
The story is a celebration of love, romance and comedy in a warm and energetic performance. The unforgettable four-hour experience is the ultimate evening of live entertainment, mixing ABBA songs into the story seamlessly along with a mouthwatering Mediterranean feast to enjoy. Enjoy the immersive live experience from your taverna table before joining in the party when the ABBA-themed disco gets started. Voulez Vous? You know you want to!

What is the seating plan for Mamma Mia! The Party?
The seating policy at Mamma Mia! The Party is similar to that which you would experience in a restaurant: you make a reservation for your group in advance, give your name to the host on arrival at Nikos Taverna and then are directed to your table. Nikos Taverna is a sociable place so you may find yourself sharing a table with other guests depending on the size of your party. We can't guarantee that groups will be able to sit together due to table sizes, but we will aim to sit you on adjacent tables.
Towards the end of the evening some Band A tables will be cleared and moved to create a spectacular dance floor, and Nikos will invite those lucky guests to join in with his fabulous ABBA finale. It is not possible to book specific tables, and we are unable to guarantee availability of any particular size table.
