An immersive Alice in Wonderland-themed cocktail bar pop-up is now open in downtown's Sample Space.
The concept offers intimate 90-minute "alternate reality experiences" capped at 25 people per session, where guests can enjoy two different themed cocktails — one pre-made and another interactive steaming teapot cocktail that they create themselves — as well as play games and much on sweet treats.
"Create your own liquid concoctions under the watchful eye of The Mad Hatter and expect things to get curious and curiouser," reads an event release.
"Dive through the looking glass and into a fantasy world where you will play croquet with flamingos, paint the roses red and devour 'Eat Me' cake! Solve riddles and challenges just like Alice and unlock all the ingredients to create your own enchanted teapot cocktails."
The pop-up will continue through March 31 and is located at 140 Marian Spencer Way. Tickets range in price from $30-$45 per person. There are adult-only sessions as well as family-friendly sessions available.
COVID-19 guidelines will be in place.
"The cap on each session is 25 people," says event PR person Shelley Allen. "The space is large and can hold many more, but we want to ensure adequate social distancing at all times. In terms of COVID protocols: everyone must be seated, all staff will wear masks, everyone must sign in, there will be regularly positioned sanitizing stations, etc. All government regulations will be strictly adhered to."
