The Bloomsbury Club Bar
Set in the heart of literary Bloomsbury, The Bloomsbury Club Bar takes inspiration from the lives of the famously hedonistic Bloomsbury Set.
The infamous Bloomsbury Set rejected Victorian ideas of religion and explored new sources of spiritual meaning– through their art and writing, their kinship's, and belief in an inter-connected universe. Inspired by a special deck of Tarot cards, designed in 1910 by bohemian occultist Pamela 'Pixie' Colman Smith, our set of 14 cocktails correspond to 14 states of mind or being. If melancholy has descended upon you, a sip of Persian Mist will lift your heavy spirits. The ingredients in Forbidden Fruit will turn your idle desire into enduring love, while Painted Veil curbs your anxiety and Flaming Venom banishes away envy.
If you are not sure which cocktail to select then our Cocktail Diviner may be brought to your table to reveal your hidden emotional state and ensure you are prescribed exactly the right tonic or antidote for your mood.
