If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy a cocktail and a virtual reality experience at the same time, London’s One Aldwych hotel may be your next stop.
Bar manager Pedro Paulo created the Showtime menu to go along with the hotel’s location in the Theater district. The drink list is separated into four genres — Comedies, Dramas, Satires, and Musicals — and each drink comes with a virtual reality experience.
CNN sampled the Origin cocktail, a whisky-based drink with champagne, cherry liqeuer, grapefruit juice, and chocolate bitters. After the drink is ordered, the guest puts on a virtual reality headset and headphones (pictured below) to experience the world of the drink as it’s being made. The Origin, for example, takes guests on a two-minute tour of the Scottish Highlands and a behind-the-scenes look at the whisky-making process.
