Get boozy at an immersive wine-inspired art exhibition in King's Cross

Kyra Hanson

What do you get when you combine immersive art, a pop-up wine bar and some 60-day aged beef? An unforgettable evening of boozy, cultured shenanigans, that's what. If that sounds like your idea of a good night, you'll want to hotfoot it over to The Rhône Touch, which takes place at Central Saint Martins from July 21 to 23.  

Enjoy a glass of the finest French grape juice, while you explore ten wine-inspired artworks, which have been designed by students from the London College of Communication. The artworks can be smelt, touched, heard – and you can even clamber inside one of them. Visitors will also be invited to step into a simulated wine barrel; as you stomp, a red light will gradually get brighter and brighter, mimicking the extraction of the juice. And speaking of juice, the pop-up wine bar will be serving up 60 different varieties of red, white and rosé.

And if all that stomping works up your appetite, fusion chef Adam Rawson is laying on the food. This guy was 2015 Chef of the Year at the Young British Foodies Awards for a reason. The menu includes charred leek with brown butter, hazelnut and belper knolle (a type of cheese) and that 60-day aged beef. If you want something smaller, bar plates start at a fiver. Plenty of sustenance to soak up all that booze. 

The Rhone Touch takes place at Platform Theatre, Handyside Street, King’s Cross, N1C 4AA between July 21-31. The exhibition is free but the pop-up restaurant can be booked in advance here.
