Molecular mixology, hip hop tunes and lab coats... head to Hackney Funhouse for an immersive cocktail experience like no other. Inspired by Breaking Bad, ABQ will have you bubbling and boiling your own potent concoctions whilst donning a stylish hazmat suit.

Don't worry about getting dolled up, this is prison. Throughout Alcotraz you'll be dressed in orange jumpsuits and tasked with smuggling in your favourite bottle of alcohol past shady characters. Manage to get it in and your bravery will be rewarded with a drink from a mixology inmate.

A pop-up that moves seamlessly between seasons, Skylight is offering a summer of outdoor games, great cocktails and knockout views at Tobacco Dock. Come winter? The rooftop bar transforms into a wonderland of igloo and ice skating delights.
