Nestled within the dimly lit archways of Waterloo is HUMBUG, a magical dive bar, filled to the brim with dazzling neon lights and Christmassy memorabilia. Step inside for a night of raucous festive fun and Christmas cheer on tap.
Let me set the scene for you: Santa isn’t quite feeling his usual jolly self (I mean, there’s a lot of pressure riding on the poor guy). He retreats to his favourite dive bar in the hope of some well needed rest and recuperation. And that’s where you come in. Guests will be required to bring their festive A-game to nurse a weary Santa back to his full elf.
Sure to be a wonderfully interactive, fun-filled evening, guests can expect to encounter all manner of HUMBUG regulars. We’re talking a disgruntled dive bar waitress, a mailman who has lost all his letters to Santa, and an ever-changing line-up of London’s finest cabaret, circus and musical acts.
With world-class production design from Secret Speakeasy (a brand-new production team from the co-founder of Backyard Cinema), a night spent at HUMBUG is guaranteed to be the ultimate festive knees-up. Head on down to Santa’s beloved watering hole and get involved in the quest to help save Christmas. The storytelling will be inspired by everyone’s favourite Christmas songs and movies, so you can indulge in a big dollop of nostalgia along the way, and party into the early hours of the morning with the plethora of live music and DJ sets.
Throughout the night, guests can stay hydrated with some festive tipples courtesy of HUMBUG’s cocktail menu. Sip on ‘The Grinch’ (a delicious concoction of rum, peach schnapps, blue curacao and pineapple juice) or indulge in the HUMBUG special ‘Bah F*****g Humbug’ (a naughty but oh-so-nice mixture of rum, chocolate liqueur, oat milk, crushed Oreos and whipped cream – topped with a mince pie).
HUMBUG promises a truly fabulous, festive night out. The perfect blend of great drinks, enchanting encounters, and Christmas magic; a visit to HUMBUG is an immersive and interactive experience where good times are guaranteed. So, round up your pals, head on down to HUMBUG, and simply have a wonderful Christmastime. It’s a definite Claus for celebration.
Humbug will be open until January 6. Tickets are priced from around £29.50 for Booth Seating. Upgrades to VIP experience are available. Find out more and book your tickets here.
