Hokus Pokus Alchemy Lab to launch in King's Cross

Related tags: Pub & bar, Hotel

London’s Megaro Hotel will unveil a new late-night bar this month that takes inspiration from dubious nineteenth century medical practices.

Called Hokus Pokus Alchemy Lab, the apothecary-style bar is inspired by 1800’s quack-physician Dr James Morison, who believed in a universal vegetable cure for all ailments based on botanical compounds. At Hokus Pokus, the botanical ‘remedies’ are instead served in cocktail form.

The interior of the 100-cover bar is described as being a blend of ‘19th​ century apothecary and retro-futuristic steampunk engine room’ with items such as electric dynamos, steam valves, copper pipes and circuits featuring throughout.

The drinks menu has been put together by Tomas Vykopal whose most recent role was bar manager at Mayfair’s Playboy Club but whose CV also includes 108 Bar, Mr. Foggs, Old Bengal Bar and Buddha Bar.

Creations will include the Jamesizz, based on the classic Ramos gin Fizz created in 1888 made with Tanqueray no.10, homemade sage syrup, citrus juice, aquafaba, cream, and peach soda; the Pipette Man with Elephant gin, lillet blanc infused with dill and grapefruit oleo saccharum; and the 1828 with herbal liquor Becherovka, sugar, lemon, and peppermint foam.

The Megaro Hotel is located on Euston Road and is part of the St. Pancras Hotel Group.
