“Why is a raven like a writing desk?”. Who knows, but you might find the answer by heading Down the Rabbit Hole at Callooh Callay tonight. Down an unassuming side-street in Hoxton, the twisted imagination of Lewis Carol saturates this bar of absurdist delights. Disorientating mosaics of old cassettes adorn the walls of this adventure playground, whilst neo-Victorian furniture and bathtubs for booths will render you sorely in need of a good drink in order to get your bearings. Fear not, the award-winning bar-staff have created a demented cocktail menu for you to choose from. Drink in-hand, take a segue into C. S. Lewis’ Narnia via a Victorian wardrobe, or sample some of the Mad Hatter’s punch decanted from a gramophone. Nonsense rules in this bar, and  as long as it is illogical and downright fanciful then you’ll find it here. Run by ex-Lounge Lover Manager Richard Wynne, you’ll soon see why Callooh Callay takes the Cheshire Cat’s quip to Alice that “We’re all mad here” more seriously than most. Inebriated, disorientated and a little nauseous, Callooh Callay should leave you grinning like a Cheshire Cat this Friday night.
