Set Sail to the Lost Lagoon
This New Year, Bompas & Parr and Captain Morgan rum will take Londoners on a nautical adventure to an underground paradise: the Lost Lagoon.
Launching for three months from the beginning of February 2019 until early April, this ticketed event will open in a secret subterranean central London location and offer the chance for budding buccaneers to leave the dark, dank English winter on a delicious journey of discovery.
Tickets available from just £20, including two drinks.
With a plot inspired by the world's most famous buccaneer himself, Lost Lagoon represents a fantastical reinterpretation of the eponymous Captain Henry Morgan's world, and will require guests to navigate themselves by boat on the world's largest indoor lagoon to a series of islands inspired by the atolls of the south Pacific – in contrast to rum's spiritual home in the Caribbean.
Along the way, facing creative challenges as part of an immersive theatrical production, they will receive rum-based rations and progressively accumulate the knowledge to make the finest rum punches, reinvigorating a 400-year-old rhyme-based recipe that has stood the test of time to remain the simplest way to make a great-tasting punch – with no obscure ingredients or complex techniques required.
Armed with their final recipe, they will find Captain Morgan's ultimate hidden bounty -– an island party palace for urban luaus set against a radical reimagining of south Pacific island-inspired tiki culture. Amid a party bar of rum-based drinks, features will include a whirlpool cocktail station, beach-inspired food and entertainment.
Perfect for groups, and with a dress code of Neo-Tiki, the vibe will be colourful and celebratory: think beyond nautical, beyond beach, beyond buccaneer. At the Lost Lagoon, more is most definitely more.
