An adults only day out with a difference? Sign us up.

Wild West Themed Immersive Cocktail Experience in London - £37

Not one for shrinking violets, this immersive cocktail experience in London allows the adults to indulge their inner-child.

We all remember the days of 'make believe' and playtime, which get forgotten as we grow up and take on responsibilities - like jobs, ugh.

Well, with this one-of-a-kind experience, you're invited to play 'make believe' once again, all while sipping a cocktail. The best of both worlds!

Arrive at the Moonshine Saloon doors in East London, ready to be immersed in a world of cowboys, sheriffs and smuggled cocktails topped off by the brilliant acting of your fellow bar-goers.

Your first mission is to smuggle your own liquor in order for your barkeeps to mix you up a variety of delicious cocktails - the bigger variety of liquor you and your friends bring, the bigger variety of cocktails!

Expect to be involved in the story line of your night with the characters there, as you are transported into the unseen world of the American Wild West. The only advice to you and your group is to ensure you look like the locals and not to attract any unwanted attention. Luckily, you will be provided with all the gear, which includes a Stetson hat and some Western attire.

If the Sheriff is in town, keep your head down, but a tip off might land you with the exciting opportunity to see Cassidy's empire crumble. If you're coming with a group of friends for a special occasion, you can assign a particular person a unique character such as the Deputy Sheriff, Brother Keeper or The Mayor!
