These days it’s hard to find a new bar or restaurant that truly gets a Londoner excited.
With pop-up eateries for every country under the sun, Heston Blumenthal branching out into Waitrose Christmas puddings and deconstructed cocktails all jostling for space in the food and drink business, nothing seems new anymore.
So when a new bar pop-up called Alcoholic Architecture was announced this month where customers could inhale their booze through alcoholic vapour, social media went crazy.
The idea of the pop-up in London’s Borough Market from foodie creatives Bompas & Parr is for people to sample their favourite alcoholic drinks through their airwaves.
They built an architectural structure which a cloud entirely composed of fine spirits and mixers at a ratio of 1:3, which is pumped into the room at a powerful speed.
According to Bompas & Parr, the alcohol is then absorbed through the eyeballs and the lungs, allowing guests to still feel the effects of alcohol, without drinking anything.
But does it really work? FEMAIL writer Caroline McGuire and her friend Connie Eccles went to test it out.
