Clearly, Lewis Carroll enjoyed a drink or two.
And Rumpus Room – despite being on the top floor of the Southbank’s Mondrian London with its own roof terrace – will be found at the end of a very deep rabbit hole this Halloween.
It’s all thanks to their Malice In Wonderland party, which will transform the sleek cocktail joint into a macabre version of the classic Victorian fantasy, complete with acts “ranging from the gruesome to the titillating to the downright scandalous”. Which, we hope don’t involve the live DJ.
You’ll have to get a costume together (they’re mandatory, because this isn’t just your average, run-of-the-mill, garden variety, ho-hum, standard Halloween party), then head out to Mondrian London on the banks of the Thames. Once inside, you’ll have a welcome drink handed to you (included in your ticket), before taking in a room which is almost as well dressed as the guests.
Taking a glance at the cocktail menu, you’ll be reminded in short order that this place is run by the same people behind Dandelyan, who won ‘world’s best bar’ the other day on the 50 Best List. The cocktails are just as stunning as you might therefore expect, and include highlights like the Bada Boom (with grapefruit gin & ‘exploding’ syrup), and the Lab & The City, which blends Aperol with vodka, pineapple, and yuzu.
Yu’d be a fool to miss it.
NOTE: Malice in Wonderland takes place on Saturday, October 27th at Rumpus Room. Tickets cost £40 (including a welcome cocktail) and are available HERE.
