Bompas & Parr’s Alcoholic Architecture arrives in Borough Market, featuring a walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail as part of an installation that explodes drinks to the scale of architecture. In this fully immersive alcohol environment – the cloud is entirely composed of fine spirits and mixer at a ratio of 1:3 and made using powerful humidifiers to super-saturate the air – alcohol enters the bloodstream through primarily the lungs but also the eyeballs.

Alcoholic Architecture sits next to the UK’s earliest gothic cathedral and on the site of an ancient monastery. These themes are channelled through a drinks lists entirely comprised of spirits and beers created by monks. All will be featured in elegantly balanced, refined and luxurious conventionally served drinks that guests can take back into the cloud.


// Alcoholic Architecture di Bompas & Parr approda al Borough Market, prevederà una nube di cocktail respirabili come parte dell’installazione che porta il drink alla scala architettonica. All’interno di questo ambiente immerso nell’alcool – la nube è interamente composta di alcolici e altri ingredienti con un rapporto di 1:3 e realizzata utilizzando potenti umidificatori per saturare l’aria – l’alcol entra nel flusso sanguigno attraverso le mucose del corpo: in primo luogo i polmoni, ma anche i bulbi oculari.

Alcoholic Architecture si trova adiacente alla prima cattedrale gotica del Regno Unito e sul suolo di un antico monastero. Questi temi vengono affrontati attraverso una lista di drink interamente costituita da distillati e birre create dai monaci. Il tutto sarà incluso in drink elegantemente bilanciati, rifiniti e lussuosi serviti agli ospiti che potranno decidere di portare con sé all’interno della nube.
