“The Alice: An Immersive Cocktail Experience” is a 90-minute interactive performance which travels around the world to combine the spirit of Disney with the spirits consumed by adults on their evenings off. Soon, it will be transforming an Upper West Side restaurant and cocktail lounge into a booze-filled wonderland.
Starting on Thursday, September 23, The Alice will be setting up shop at Pekarna (594 Amsterdam Ave at 89th Street), where Upper West Siders can “create two Wonderland cocktails, paint the roses red and devour ‘Eat Me’ cake” at the colorful Slovenian-American venue. Imbibers will also get to solve riddles and puzzles.
Each session is 90 minutes, and the program will be taking place Wednesdays through Sundays until November 30. The organizers, Explore Hidden, say it’s a “theatrical, alternate reality experience that will take you down the rabbit hole and through the looking glass!” That’s what the organizers say. But it does sound pretty cool.
