Hendrick's Carriage of Curiousities

My adoration of gin, and dressing up like a Miss Fancypants are finally about to be realised. And of course, Hendrick's are behind this wonderful little scheme.

The Carriage of Curiousities is the the latest in the whole pop-up bar thing. I'll be honest, I'm sick of pop-up bars. And pop-up shops. And pop-up books. Oh, no, I still like pop-up books. They're fun. But if it's not Central Perk popping up in Soho (sans the actual cast because it's that stupid), Tiffany boxes are popping up for no real reasons that I can fathom.

But Hendricks make things better.

They've teamed up with the Jellymongers Bompas and Parr to bring you this gorgeous carriage from the 19th century and basically half bar, half restaurant, but with the added fun of art installation and live music venue as well. Oh, and wonderful things with gin.

You can take your unusual items along and have them photographed and maybe win a fancy meal. And then you can eat the most wonderful thing I've ever heard about in the history of Domestic Sluttery:

Glow in the dark gin and tonic jelly.

The carriage is only here between the 1st and 4th October so make sure you get yourself down to Manchester Square Gardens before it goes. This is one pop-up shop/bar/carriage that you do not want to miss. It's open between 11am and 9pm so you've got plenty of time. It's free to visit, but make sure you leave them something curious, won't you?

And if you pop back here later today, I might even share that glow in the dark jelly recipe with you...


  1. I'm intrigued...How exactly does one dress as Miss Fancypants?

  2. Let's see... lace gloves, gratuitous cigarette holder, bit of red lippy...
