There is one Christmas experience in London this year which has been on top of everyone’s list. Westfield and Bombas & Parr is not a likely partnership, but ‘Beyond the Waterfall’ is an immersive cocktail odyssey that miraculously matches the two brands.
Tickets cost £15 for an hour long journey within the magical installation. You will row through a waterfall, meet wondrous characters and be treated to exciting gifts along the way.
Commenting on the experience, Harry Parr, partner of Bompas & Parr, said: “Christmas is obviously a magical time of year, but many people find it hugely predictable, so we’ve designed a radical new form of escapism that still evokes the emotions and nostalgia of the season. The group activity draws people together, with a real sense of discovery and emotion associated with gift-giving and an indulgent treat at its heart.”
The drinks, served to you by alluring mermen, are surprisingly tasty… We enjoyed ‘The Old Man & The Sea’ a straight up drink made with rum, rye, sweet vermouth, maraschino, benedictine and bitters. The ‘Shipwreck Sour’ is an exotic take on a traditional sour with brandy, coral calvados, creme de peche and egg white. For something extra pretty opt for the ‘Floating Gold’ which arrives with gold leaf sugar crystal!
Tickets are are priced at £15 per person. This includes a 60 minute adventure and two bespoke cocktails. Beyond the Waterfall runs until 23rd December and bookable slots are every 15 minutes with last entry at 21:00 each evening. More information and book tickets here.
