Superheroes Bar’, a new interactive cocktail experience located in East London, is due to open on Friday 27th March for three months.
Once guests enter the ‘hidden lair’ in Dalston, they will be suited with a mask and cape and encouraged to discover their own ‘superpowers’ by creating their own “super-charged” drinks.
This new creation is brought to you by the makers of The Cauldron, the well-known wizard-inspired cocktail experience and is the third venue opened by the company in London.
Visitors will be led to their interactive workstation, where, in a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style experience, the decisions that guests make will impact which ‘powers’ they develop.
Each new adventure draws inspiration from a different comic book style; Noir, Anime, Golden Age and Silver Age.
The Cauldron’s co-founders Matthew Cortland and David Duckworth designed Superheroes Bar to “surprise, delight, and strike at the heart of the comic fandom in London.”
While Duckworth leads cocktail creation and experimentation, Cortland brings his fascination and knowledge of science and technology, to create a “one-of-a-kind” interactive experience.
Duckworth said: “The menu at Superheroes Bar is the product of a team of expert mixologists and comic book geeks coming together to create an experience that will excite and astound fans of graphic novels and superheroes.”
Following on from this, Cortland, added: “Just as we have created an immersive magical experience at The Cauldron, our in-house ideation studio, The Magic of Things, has brought the history of the comic book multiverse to life through interactive technology and science. As a result, there will be plenty of plot-twists for guests to enjoy.”
All drinks are made to be multi-sensory, interactive and feature different effects such as fire, UV, smoke, and expansion and if desired, can be made to be non-alcoholic, gluten-free, and vegan-friendly.
Tickets for ‘Superheroes Bar’ can be purchased at www.superheroes.bar, and are available on a first-come first serve basis.
Prices start at £29.99 and include all the materials and supplies, three cocktails and the immersive experience which lasts around 1hr 45min.
