Howdy readers! Are you up for some Wild West action right in the heart of London’s Chelsea? Moonshine Saloon invites you to spend an evening drinking amongst fellow cowboys in a clandestine saloon. It is an immersive experience where you will be part of a cowboy story while you sip incredible cocktails. It’s also BYOB — you’ll need to bring 35cl of your favorite spirit per two guests and the bartenders will craft three to four delicious drinks. This is how it went for us.
Upon arrival, we were directed to the local tailor and provided with a Stetson hat, jacket and cowboy bandana. We then entered the saloon and got comfy in our table.
Have you ever dreamt of becoming a pirate? Well you can now do so just for an evening and right in the middle of London at Pirates of the Hidden Spirit. This is your chance to become a pirate and drink cocktails at the same time!
Your life of piracy will begin in a ship docked somewhere in central London, location to be revealed once you purchase the ticket. Upon arrival, one of the members of the crew – a pirate – will greet you with a little bit of pirate talk and then escort you to the ship. You will leave your belongings in the cloakroom and receive your special pirate attire as well as meet other members of the crew.
There are little things better than all the events that arise in London around Christmas. I heard about After Dark, but taking a look at the After Dark website I didn’t really know what to expect. It could either be amazing or a total flop. I decided to give it a try.
I heard about Mr Foggs House of Botanicals opening and I thought: a House of Botanicals? I need to visit right away! After doing some research, I learned two things. First, there are many Mr Foggs, and this is the newest one. Second, Mr Foggs is part of the same group as the must-visit iconic bar Cahoots so this made me even more eager.
Upon arrival to Mr Foggs House of Botanicals which is located on a corner of Fitzrovia, we were greeted by the lovely doormen and let in. We quickly learned that the downstairs area of the bar is walk in, while upstairs is reserved for bookings. Both areas have different cocktail menus. The downstairs area is filled of lush greenery and nice people chatting, and most are standing up. If you were to try and imagine how the area looks like, it is a little bit like if there were a bar inside of the Kew Gardens’ greenhouse. If you look up, you’ll find bird cages filled with plant and flowers which hang from the ceiling.
