The team behind Alcotraz and Avora do not stutter. In fact, with a yee-haw, they welcome you to another immersive cocktail experience, this time set in the Wild West. Moonshine Saloon is for those who like their cocktails with a side of adventure. Saunter down the streets of Aldgate, smuggle in your illicit moonshine (i.e. BYOB), and step behind the swinging doors for an hour and 45 minutes of a theatrical drinking experience like no other.
What can you expect at the Moonshine Saloon immersive cocktail experience?
Cowboys and cowgirls, ramblers and gamblers, and all kinds of shady characters fill the Moonshine Saloon. Leave your morals at the door, because you’ll be operating away from the prying eyes of the Sheriff. Once you step off the modern-day pavement, you’ll enter a Wild Western street (the set design is impressive), and perhaps even embody a specific character in the evening’s tale. Got to look the part if you’re going to blend in, right?
While you’re at Moonshine Saloon, you’ll be side by side with live actors who’ll welcome you into the illicit Moonshine empire. Roll the dice – quite literally – as you try your hand at a selection of dice and card games, or simply chat with the local cowboys and cowgirls who frequent this here spot. The bartenders will transform your booze into four personalised Old West cocktails; and as you’ve brought your own liquor, you’re now officially part of the covert liquor operation led by the self-styled King of the Moonshiners, Clyde Cassidy!
Your evening will come to a climax as the Sheriff tries to foil the operation – will he succeed? However your story of illicit hooch ends, it’ll be an unforgettable experience. Moonshine Saloon welcomes outlaws each Wednesday to Friday from 7pm, and Saturdays from midday; you can opt for a standard ticket, or one attached to a specific character. Rest assured, only one patron is assigned each of the characters in each session, so there’ll be no need to go toe to toe and call “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”
