ABQ Hackney London

ABQ Hackney

A RV van on Hackney Road Breaking Bad style… now that is definitely original and that is what we call ABQ.  Created by Lollipop, the guys behind The Bletchley, ABQ is the more chilled out East London immersive cocktail experience based on the popular Breaking Bad series.

The concept is simple – you ‘cook’ up some cocktails with yellow boiler suits on, masks and goggles. Think dry ice, syringes and ‘explosions’. A pretty great concept, fun and interactive – they could do with some more staff to help with guiding the making of cocktails but they fill gaps with shots which you clearly can’t complain about!

We started off with a Wendy Martini: vodka, passoa, passionfruit and prosecco, dry ice fusion of vanilla and white chocolate bubbles (which I did enjoy blowing!) which is a sharing cocktail.

Individual cocktail wise we had CRT Fix: Gin, elderflower, lime, cucumber and mint infused with thyme and rosemary, Ruby: fennel infused gin, betaone shrub, lemon juice, rhubarb syrup and peychauds with ginger extract and Ted: Whiskey, maraschino, thyme and ginger, dark fruit shrub and lime with hibiscus hydrosole air.

It was so much fun making the cocktails and just a different experience to the norm. At £32.50 for a welcome cocktail and two hours in the RV including the cooking / infusing of  2 cocktails, it is good value – oh not to mention the fantastic rnb and hip hop music that goes with it!
