The bar which gets you tipsy on its air – The Gin Bar
Adults are often reminded to drink responsibly but customers entering a new cocktail bar where they are literally enveloped in a mist of alcohol are warned to breathe responsibly.
Just 40 minutes inside the venue – which delivers an intoxicating vapour of gin and tonic – will leave you feeling slightly merry. Punters are also advised to don special protective suits as they enter the walk-in cocktail to avoid going home smelling like a brewery.
Tickets, priced £5, are available for hourly slots and customers must be over 21.

Londoners offered chance to eat sushi off naked models - Flash Sushi Restauarant
Adventurous Londoners are now able to eat sushi off naked female models – but the cost of sampling the traditional Nyotaimori experience comes at a high cost.
Despite the credit crunch-defying price of £250 per head, founder Nigel Carlos said there was a “need in the market for it.”
Mr Carlos, who started up the venture with Japanese-raised Nick Hepburn, added: “There’s obviously high end Japanese restaurants out there, however there is no mainstream, or anybody doing it right or authentically in the UK. We saw an opportunity to bring this kind of traditional dining to London for adventurous London diners.”
He admitted the high price tag – which includes champagne on arrival, a 10-course authentic sushi dinner prepared by a genuine Japanese chef, all eaten off the female body, and unlimited alcohol – limited the number of people who could partake in it.
Mr Carlos said the tradition was getting an “underground” following in the US after it was brought to public attention by celebrities including Tom Cruise, George Clooney and Pierce Brosnan, Flash Sushi is bringing it to London.
