The Lost Lagoon at Shepherd’s Bush

Ahoy me hearties!

Dry January is coming to an end and what better way to celebrate sobriety than by attending a Secret Rum Lagoon*

From the 1st February Shepherd’s Bush will play host to The Lost Lagoon, a theatrical, multi-sensory cocktail experience aiming to explore all that rum has to offer.  A man-made lake awaits you – by which you can cross by boat – and a myriad of drinks to plunder.

 

If the second month of the year is one that holds no excitement for you then grab your ‘Neo Tiki’ outfit (which is entirely up to you to figure out), a bag full of pieces of eight and head over to West London for a booty-ful (OK I’ll stop) adventure.
