British boffins Bompas and Parr created a “fully immersive alcohol environment” which turns spirits and mixers into a fine cloud with the help of humidifiers that create 140 per cent humidity called Alcoholic Architecture.
Since alcoholic evaporation ‘bypasses’ liver, just 40-minute wandering around the installation will make visitors seriously drunk.
Clients will be given special protective suit to wear so that their clothes are not damaged because of high humidity as they walk in alcoholic cloud.
‘Creatively the installation draws inspiration from Borough Market’s produce, medieval history and weather to create a sci-fi fantasy where meteorology and mixology collide,’ said Sam Bompas.
‘Visiting Alcoholic Architecture will generate the same sort of awe and wonder we have all probably experienced when gazing up at the night’s sky. Imagine Disney meets De Sade in Barbarella’s castle by way of Medieval Times with flagons of ale,’ he explained.
The bar launches in London’s Borough Market on July 31, on the site of an ancient monastery, and will be open for six months. One session will cost £10.
