A 'Breaking Bad' 'Meth Cocktail Bar' Has Popped Back up in London

Didn’t manage to go to the Breaking Bad-style pop-up cocktail bar last year? Well guess what. We’ve got some good news for you because it’s back in town!

The bar, dubbed ABQ (short for Albuquerque, where the hit show was set) is serving up methy cocktails in an authentic RV in Hackney Wick.

This year, they’ve gone all out and kitted out the very swanky, very realistic new lab with space for up to 28 people.

Inside, you’ll be able to channel your inner Heisenberg and get cooking – cocktails – not meth obviously, as that would be very illegal.

There are two molecular ‘methology’ (we’re kidding mixology) techniques you’ll be trying out to create your cocktails – ‘Saul’s C2H6O’, a semi-frozen concoction made with dry ice; and ‘Blue Flynn’, a rum-based booze up, which changes colour depending on its acidity.

Oh, and you even get to dress up in lab coats too. Score – literally…

Since the RV popped up back up, more than 42,000 people have applied for tickets, so we advise to book now so you can try it out in 2019 (and yes, we’re serious). There’s light at the end of the bong though, as the awesome organisers of the event are trying to find a more permanent (and hopefully larger) location for the bar. Let’s just hope so we can cook a little longer this time. Watch this space for further details!

ABQ is at 455 Hackney Road, E29DY. Wednesday–Sunday only. Tickets can be cooked here and will set you back £30 per mixer.
