Archived Soft Launches

Archived: The Spirit of Man, City

40% off food from Tuesday 9 – Thursday 11 July 2019

Step back into Victoriana, in the new immersive restaurant inspired by H G Wells’ 1898 novel in Leadenhall by the team at dotdotdot.

It's part of the immersive theatre experience, Jeff Wayne’s The War of The Worlds: The Immersive Experience so is a pretty usual soft launch!

Offering a taste of the immersive theatre experience, cocktails are inspired from key scenes in the book and include The Earl with Bulleit Rye infused with Earl Grey Tea, Grand Marnier and orange bitters; Dead London Mule with Havana 7yr, Commonwealth ginger beer and fresh lime; or the inspired Flaming Ogilvy, with Monkey 47 sloe, Campari and topped with champagne. In addition, a cold coffee contraption, constructed by SteampunkCoffeeMachine, is fully operational offering everything from a cold brew to fresh Espresso Martinis, ideal for relaxed or celebratory drinks with friends. There's also food on offer, ranging from pizzas to old school "pyes"!

We must admit, we've never read the book (we now feel guilty for not doing so...) find out more about the experience on their site!
