The launch of a new bar in London has got the whole of Shiny Towers in a tizz, not just because it’s literally down the road from our offices and we’re renowned cocktail-supping gals, but because it promises to be the world’s most technologically-advanced bar and nightclub. Nope, we’re not just talking a few extra power sockets to charge up your mobile phones, here.
Twentyfour:London is reportedly the first bar in the world with a fully-interactive interior, where customers can control projected images on every wall, choosing between ‘dot matrix sci-fi chic, crashing sea surroundings, Californian desert scenery’, or even your own images and videos. If you fancy getting even more involved with the interior decoration, you can play with the interactive virtual Koi Carp, or dance and watch your thermal shadows on the walls replicating every shape being thrown.
Added to the mix is plenty of atmospheric mood lighting, and the UK’s first i-bar, which contains integrated video projectors allowing customers to throw images onto the bar’s surface.
For anyone who’s ever stopped by the Beatles-themed Revolution bar at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas (read a brilliant review on the bar here at Pocket-Lint), this will all sound very familiar, however Twentyfour:London promises to be much more interactive, and open to all forms of images, not just bite-sized Beatles pictures.
Sometime in the next few weeks several of us Shinies will be stopping by Twentyfour:London to
fill our tummies to the brim with cocktails grab some videos of the amazing technology used in what sounds like London’s most exciting bar yet. Keep your eyes peeled for the video footage, and for sales of Berocca to increase dramatically in central London supermarkets.
The bar opens officially this Saturday, the 15th of September, and is located at 24 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5QP.
