What's that you say? Yes, you heard right. A new London bar lets you absorb alcohol into your bloodstream via your lungs and eyeballs! Here's what we know about this so-called Alcoholic Architecture
Food experimentalists Bompas & Parr are the mad, creative duo behind this concept that just ticked all of our Sensory Fetishsim boxes. Alcoholic Architecture is an installation that lets guests walk through alcohol filled clouds that can be inhaled. This unique weather bar encloses alcoholic vapor into glass boxes so that guests can enter to ingest boozy air.
Each vapor cloud is composed of one part spirit and three parts mixer. To create the clouds, a humidifier is used to super-saturate the air. The way the alcohol is ingested allows it to bypass the liver, which means that guests can consume 40 percent less booze for the same levels of intoxication. Respiratory scientists and chemists were consulted to ensure safety precautions were taken.
The pop-up will be open for six months at London’s Borough Market on the site of an ancient monastery. Besides the inhalables, there are plenty of other taboo breaking experiences that are sure to entice all the senses. Guests will have to wear special protective suits as the high humidity makes your clothes a tad damp and smelling like a monastic brewery.
Now, what we want to know is, how does this effect our hangover? If the alcohol bypasses our liver... does that mean we'd be off the hook the next morning? #askingforafriend
