BOOZE IS IN THE LONDON AIR
In London, gin and tonic drinks are in the air, literally. At Alcoholic Architecture, a "walk-in cocktail," the alcohol is vaporized using an ultrasonic humidifier system (very unlike the one you have in your bedroom during winters) and pumped through the bar so patrons can drink without taking a sip. For $7, (the cost of ONE drinkable g/t in a decent bar) you too can enjoy a gin and tonic courtesy of Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, although I'm guessing the gin won't be anything as delicious as Hendrick's. No idea how much vapor you must breathe to get the most out of your night, or how the protective plastic suits will cramp your steez, but I'm sure you'll leave smelling like a complete drunk. Goodtimes are limited, the bar is temporary and closes shop at the end of the month.
