A Breaking Bad-Themed Bar Is Coming To Manchester In Spring 2018.. Let's 'Cook'

A Breaking Bad-Themed Bar Is Coming To Manchester In Spring 2018.. Let's 'Cook'

There's going to be some pretty high-concept cocktails on the menu at ABQ Manchester, presumably with some ice - not that sort of ice, though.

Are you a big fan of Breaking Bad? Do you live in Manchester in the UK? Do you want to drink things that have got Crystal Meth in them?

That last one is a joke, but if you answered yes to the first two questions - prepare to be very, very excited.

After the success of the UK's first Breaking Bad themed bar in London, another pop-up bar inspired by the TV show is coming to Manchester.

ABQ, named after the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, where much of the show is set, is arriving in the north of England this spring.

The bar is situated inside an RV - a large American caravan, basically - and if you manage to get in you can mix your own cocktails and play at being Walter White or Jesse Pinkman.

The one in London described itself as the world's first molecular cocktail bar - imagine infusing drinks with dry ice and using acids and chemicals in the process.

Sound fun? Well, you'd better act fast as it looks as if the haz-mat suits are going to fill up pretty quickly for the as yet unknown Manchester site.

It usually sells out pretty damn fast, though. Paris, London, and New York's versions of the bar sold all of their tickets out - which is over 100,000 people and a hell of a lot of dry ice.

Tickets are likely to be around £25 - £35 which will be for two hours and three cocktails inside the RV. It will be sold on a first come, first served basis, so you'll need to be quick.

The collective behind it is called Lollipop, and their founder, Seb Lyall, said: "No doubt ABQ is one of the most interesting and fun projects we have built in the last few years and I am happy that finally it is going to be open in Manchester."

It's probably going to open in about April, so watch this space for more details on how to get tickets or to sign up for a chance to get some.

If you do manage to get in you could be making up 'The Lab' in the RV. The cocktail consists of lemon vodka, maraschino, thyme, lemongrass, rosemary, and cardamom, garnished with a dry ice infusion of lemon and lavender with crème de violet bubbles.

This sounds a lot nicer than Crystal Meth.

Tatler recently described the London ABQ as "the best thing we have seen in a while" - so expect demand to be high for the Manchester version, too.
