Alcoholic Air: For Those Too Lazy To Lift A Glass

April 17, 2009

Alcoholic Architecture is far from your average London bar. Tickets for a “breathable cocktail” of gin and tonic mist are timed by the hour and can be purchased at the door. 40 minutes inside the building created to give the illusion of being INSIDE a drink will leave one a little giddy. No doubt the gigantic straws, limes, and background sound of a drink being poured over ice will make one feel slightly disoriented. The unique attraction is only open ’till April 25th, so get a whiff while you can if you’re in the London area.

This is an alcoholic’s dream realized by wacky innovators Bompas & Parr, whose culinary abnormalties have captured the attention of more than just the locals. These eccentric “jellymongers” are creating some very strange culinary commotion with their fine English jellies. Sit down to a mouth-watering feast comprised of nothing but jelly. Enhance your viewing experience with the smell of dusty books at the Scratch n Sniff Cinema.

To further confuse the senses, Bompas & Parr have brought to light something that will make you question your own tongue: “flavour tripping”. Participants of the U.K.’s first public flavour tripping party ate freeze dried West African berries called Synsepalum Dulcificum that made “lemons taste like toffee and vinegar like sherry”. New York’s culinary and art scenes have been inspired by this, organizing similar events.

What will they think of next?!
