A weekend spent in London with family & friends for my sisters birthday. We had heard about this experience and thought we would give it a try, tick it off the bucket list. The whole experience was... strange? A room of mist that supposedly is...More

I think you would only do this as we did for the experience and a one of visit. Drinks are expensive and you can only stay in the mist lounge for a very short time. Our boys treated us to the experience prior to going...More

Went to the alcoholic architecture with a friend, had a cocktail at the bar which I wasn't keen on it tasted medicinal to me. In the room itself is a mist of gin, I had to say it was fun being in a misty room...More

Such a rip-off! Expensive price for what it was, not even a tiny amount of alcohol there, expensive cocktails, the place is just a room.. I suggest buying G&T and perfumed soaps in Sainsbury's, and leave the water run for a while to gain some...More

We came across this and I was persuaded us to go in. BIG MISTAKE! The dressed-up chap pulling punters at the door of course made it sound good and I thought it would have some interesting decor at least as I did not expect that...More

To me this place embodies Britain. Modern, yet historic. Cultured, with a sub culture. At alcoholic architecture you find yourself breathing alcohol and drinking infused alcoholic beverages. Rather than being drunk and sleepy, you are loose and vibrant. If you like to be the first...More

£10 to stand in what is literally a tiny, white walled room with bad and unenthusiastic music playing whilst supposedly flavoured water is sprayed at you. They claim 40 minutes is equivalent to 2 G&Ts. You're far more likely to leave this place with Legionnaires...More

Attended with a group of friends. After paying for and receiving an allocated time slot of around 40 mins, I was concerned that it wouldn't be a great amount of time. Unfortunately, the time was actually too long. After swapping our coats for plastic ponchos,...More

Took clients here hoping for something unique. You book a 40min slot and that's it. Plastic ponchos and you head to a alcohol fumed room with little light and loud music. Not much effects at all and certainly a lot less than the Web site...More

We wanted to try something new while in London. The room smelled mouldy and we didnt really get anything out of the steamy room. We tried some cocktails from the bar but they were nothing special either. It was quite boring to our liking.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
