The fourteen long list of cocktails has been created to match the fourteen states of mind or being - and with an air of divination, telepathy and all things mystical, will give you an insight into the hedonistic and debaucherous lives of The Bloomsbury Set.
The infamous Bloomsbury Set rejected Victorian ideas of religion and explored new sources of spiritual meaning – through their art and writing, their kinships, and belief in an inter-connected universe. In the aftermath of the First World War, audiences gasped in packed-out theatres at the extraordinary illusions of magicians and mind-readers, while drawing rooms across London hosted intimate gatherings to communicate with the dead, and those desperate for answers darted down back streets to have their fates spelt out on upturned cards.
The Bloomsbury Club Bar’s new Cocktail Diviner manifests this era of prophecy and premonition; it knows how you are feeling. Upon arrival at the bar, you can either choose from the menu itself or allow the Diviner machine to guide their emotions, exposing your secret yearnings and allowing it to provide a perfect tonic to their state of mind. Which cocktail will your inner being choose...
