The Wonderland Bar is a fun and imaginative pop up bar in Waterloo’s Vaults which is up and running until the end of August. Originally having opened as part of Alice in Wonderland Underground – an immersive theatre production – the production and the bar have both been a huge success.
I attended the Press Launch of the bar two weeks ago and loved it. It does feel like you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole, with cocktails (by Bourne and Hollingsworth) inspired by Alice’s adventures, huge neon flamingos and playing cards painted on the walls and a hedge maze. If that’s not entertaining enough, you can play croquet with (plastic) flamingos.
If you get hungry the very excellent Pieminster has a stall on the upper level, serving a delicious range of British pies with fantastical names, and offering you the chance to sit down and enjoy the performances of the bar’s interactive actors.
I highly recommend it for an after work drink, after which I’d walk to South bank and grab a burger at the Bleecker Street pop up and enjoy sunset views of the Thames and Westminster.
