The Patti Boyd: Baked lamb and tomatoes on roasted garlic crust. You order it, but when it arrives at your table, someone else eats it.

The Maureen Cox: Steak, roasted spicy peppers and burrata. When it arrives, you trade with whoever took the Patti Boyd.

The Jane Asher: Light crust made of strong, white flour and Union Jack water, baked in a wood fire oven, topped with creamy curd and mushrooms. While waiting, slip next door and eat something else.  When it arrives, claim surprise that you're not hungry for it anymore.

Pete Best Platter: A bowl of Madras curry and bread sticks. They get you started and you don't have to pay for them.

The George Martin Special: You order ridiculous toppings and the Pizzaioli has to figure out how to make it taste good.

The Yoko Ono: You order any pizza on the menu and when the waiter arrives, you throw it on the floor and claim it's art.

The Brian Epstein: A cookie dough crust topped with cream cheese and fruit.

The Magic Alex: The Pizzaioli promises you the most fantastic pizza ever. You pay a huge price for it but it never arrives.

12-inch (medium)

Live Killers (large)

Live Killers with News Of The World (extra large)

Toppings:

Cheese Will Rock You (cheese)

Bocheesian Rhapsody (extra cheese)

Under Roni (pepperoni)

Keep Chicken Alive (chicken)

Sausage To Love (sausage)

Fat Bacon Girls (bacon)

The Invisible Shroom (mushrooms)

Pepper To Fall (peppers)

Onion To Live Forever (onions)

Tie Your Mother Down (everything)

Other choices:

I like the idea of season tickets as a nod to John's joke in 'Help '.

Even though I really like Penny Lane Pizza, I'd personally go with Pepperland Pizza, @PizzaGuy415.

How's about a poll?

I think 'Penny Lane ' screams more Beatles than 'Pepperland ', especially for very casual fans. It also rolls off the tongue much easier than 'Pepperland ', that and people might think you put a load of pepper on your pizzas, which would be a tad bit weird.

 

As a compromise you can always call the pepperoni pizza 'Pepperland Pepperoni'.

 

For decor etsy.com has some really nice individual pieces and also 60's memorabilia, and if you're bulk-buying from a seller I'm sure they'll give you a discount. 

 

Note: If buying memorabilia from there, make sure to check what items like that have sold for in the past, as they are often ridiculously overpriced.

Lots of kids see 'Yellow Submarine ' thru their parents so the link is highly tangible or can be made easier than thru 'Sgt Pepper '. 

Plus you won't get folk like me saying "It's not on Penny Lane !!!'.

Pepperland can be anywhere, whereas Penny Lane is somewhere that your pizza place will no be. As for Pizzeria vs. Pizza, both work. If I were to make a pizza joint, I'd only say pizza if it follows a possessive noun. For example: Sir Walter Raleigh's Pizza vs. Stupid Get Pizzeria

Hey guys, I'm back.  So I had a depressing realization.  I posted a survey on Reddit asking people about a Beatles Themed restaurant and a whopping 50% were not interested.  Now Reddit is mainly 17-28 year olds, but that's a good segment of the pizza buying public.

 

So I don't know what to do...no matter what, I will always play Beatles music, but maybe making it 100% Beatles themed is not the way to go...I'm torn.  

 

Anyways, as for a name, I was thinking something more pizza related that also has a Beatles connection.  (Someone must have mentioned this)

I am considering Cheese Cheese Me - Pizza

I think most people love pizza because of the cheese and this really plays into that.  As well for us Beatle fanatics we can see where it comes from.  Most pizza places are either first names (Joes, Sals, Vinnys, Johnnys); Italian named (Napoli, Antico, Roma) etc...I think this could be a good inbetween option.

 

Anyway, just talking out loud...

You should never listen to criticisms. People are stupid. If your restaurant is good, people will love it. And everyone loves The Beatles whether they admit it or not.

I wouldn't say that everybody likes The Beatles. I think there are a lot who say they don't like them/never really listened to them, and a lot who say they love them, but most of those who say they love them probably wouldn't get many references.

With that being said, however, I think you should still go for a Beatles theme as long as that is what's in your heart. There certainly would be people who would enjoy the references, and as ET said, if the food/service is good, people will go there.
