Code your cocktail – Bletchley Cocktail Bar

I feel privileged and I went along to a soft launch night of Lollipops new bar called ‘Bletchley’. Upon entering the bar I was blown away as I really do feel like I had travelled back into time back to the war with it’s dark lit atmosphere and the noise of air raid sirens going off and everyone dressed in war time uniforms.  You are all given a war jacket to wear to make you feel like you are in the war.  Then you are asked to choose your favourite colour mine being Pink so I was called ‘Agent Pink’. Now onto the fun part of ordering my cocktail.  For my first cocktail I had to solve a code mainly by using the initials of my name using a electronic enigma machine then you had to decide which smell out of the numbered test tubes that had liquid in them was your favourite then writing down that number. There was so many different smells and some I could not decode the smell but all smelt really nice. I chose a citrus smelling one as I just love citrus fruits. You then can call the operator to give over your unique code. The drink is then created based on your code and the chosen smell you chose. All drinks are unique and created upon your code and smell so will never be the same. My drink contained Rosemary, Cardamon pods, Ginger, Redcurrent and Rum which was so sweet and tangy it really did make my taste buds explode and tingle with sheer delight.  It was so delicious and wish I could have ordered another however the good thing is that you get given a envelope with your Agent name on it and inside is listed the ingrediants of your unique cocktail so you could technically create it again at home plus inside the envelope was yet another code to solve to get your next cocktail.  Again once you get through to the phone operator you read of your code and this time she asks what is your chosen country so I chose Malta as I am half Maltease. Alas though I will never know what my second created cocktail would of been as you only get 2 hours in the Bletchly bar and because this was a soft launch drinks did take too long to create and come and it was now time for the second group. Even though I loved Bletchly and I would love to go back I don’t think I would rush back until they have sorted out the timing better and possibly making the coding a bit easier but other than that I had a blast at the Bletchly Bar and I do highly recommend to anyone to go and check this bar out as you really will be blown away.
