Alcoholic Architecture

Things to do

Time Out says

Visit a gothic cathedral positioned on the site of an ancient monastery and you can be sure something curious will happen to you, though getting drunk wouldn't usually be our first assumption. Edible experience wizards Bompas & Parr are creating a boozy installation just next door to Southwark Cathedral, the spooky history of which has inspired the drinks list. Chartreuse, Benedictine, Trappist beer and even Buckfast ar eon the monk-themed menu, but more exciting than such holy liquids is a cloud of alcoholic steam. Guests will have to put on special protective suits before they enter the walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail, which is so potent that you will only have to consume 60% of your normal measures to feel the same effect. Though how anyone knows when they've consumed 60% of a Bacardi Breezer is beyond us. You'll be drinking it in through your eyeballs, but don't panic – Bompas & Parr worked with scientists to make sure they know how long it's safe to stay in what must be the most welcome cloud ever. Tickets allow an hour in the installation. Book in advance on the Alcoholic Architecture website.
