If you have watched the Breaking Bad TV series and happen to be in London, then you must read this. If not, you can also read, of course, but the references to the show won’t mean anything to you. The ABQ London immersive molecular cocktail bar experience is a lot of fun either way. #abqlondon
The first noticeable Breaking Bad reference is the RV motorhome where the event actually takes place. Even though the inside is set up as a bar, they paid special attention to details. With a Walter White/Heisenberg portrait at the back, you get to sit on blue barrels similar to those of the series.
Next, put on your yellow hazmat suit, glasses and mask, and you are ready to cook your drinks!
The experience lasts 2 hours and there are 3 drinks included. The first one is a “Breaking Bad Blue Meth” welcome cocktail.
Next, you can choose 2 more drinks from the menu. I was sitting with 3 other people and we decided to go for “The Lab”, which we were told was the more impressive drink and requires 4 persons.
The personnel then brought all the equipment to our table and nicely instructed us on how to prepare the drink step by step. We cooked the drink while loud music played and it felt like a motorhome party.
For my second cocktail, I chose the “Ruby”. It came prepared and the only step for this one was creating foam to decorate it on the top. Not too much cooking here, but all of the drinks were delicious.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience and the cooking/chemistry part is fun. There are many Breaking Bad series references and it adds a special touch to the immersion. Be warned, the suits are hot and you get all damp very quickly.
After the cooking part, you can order additional fun drinks.
I highly recommend the ABQ London immersive molecular cocktail bar experience.
