The 'Breaking Bad'-inspired pop-up bar is coming back to London

Isabelle Aron

If you didn't manage to go to the 'Breaking Bad'-style pop-up cocktail bar in Hackney Wick last year, we've got good news for you – it's back in town.

The bar, which is called ABQ (short for Albuquerque, where the show is set), will be making its home in an RV in Hackney from August 5. It's been kitted out with a swanky new lab with space for 28 people to channel their inner Heisenberg and get cooking. Although we're talking cocktails, not meth, obviously.

You'll use molecular mixology techniques to create two cocktails – Saul's C2H6O, a semi-frozen concoction made with dry ice, and Blue Flynn, a rum-based beverage, which changes colour depending on its acidity.

More than 42,000 people applied for tickets when the bar popped up last summer, so you'll need to get in there quickly if you want a spot in the RV. But if you miss out, don't panic. The organisers are currently trying to find a permanent home for the bar, so it could be sticking around for good this time. 

ABQ is at 455 Hackney Road, E29DY. Wednesday–Sunday from August 5.
