Lost Lagoon

A fantastical voyage in a secret subterranean locale for Captain Morgan.
Lost Lagoon

An exotic paradise beneath the city

London, 2019: Bompas & Parr collaborated with Captain Morgan rum to conceive a nautical adventure in an underground paradise: the Lost Lagoon.

This ticketed event was hidden in a secret subterranean central London location and offered the chance for budding buccaneers to leave the dark, dank English winter on a delicious journey of discovery.

With a plot inspired by the world's most famous buccaneer himself, Lost Lagoon represented a fantastical reinterpretation of the eponymous Captain Henry Morgan's world, and required guests to navigate themselves by boat on the world's largest artificially constructed indoor lagoon to a series of islands inspired by the atolls of the south Pacific.


Along the way, facing creative challenges as part of an immersive theatrical production, buccaneers received rum-based rations and progressively accumulated 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.

Armed with their final recipe, they found 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.

Perfect for groups, and with a dress code of Neo-Tiki, the vibe was colourful and celebratory: think beyond nautical, beyond beach, beyond buccaneer. At the Lost Lagoon, more was most definitely more.
