As a kid I used to sit down with my Great Aunt watching Western movies every Saturday afternoon, whilst sipping on a cold Sarsaparilla. I’m not ashamed to say that I always had my trusty 6 shooter by my side ready for the showdown (that’s right kids used to play with toy guns without later going out and trying to to do it for real). So you can only imagine my excitement when I found out about a Western themed bar immersive concept.
Things you need to take with you to enjoy this evening.
This bring your own booze concept really works in sway with the theme of the old wild west where certain spirits were outlawed. From the moment you walk through the door you are greeted by Jesse and instructed on etiquette for the night. Jesse doesn’t own the bar, his wife does. But what she doesn’t know is that he’s running a little side business that isn’t quite legal. Grease his palms and give him your bottle of moonshine and say no more. When you go down into the saloon speak to the barkeep with a nudge and wink and she’ll serve you up something special. But be careful as the Sheriff likes to frequent the bar and isn’t afraid to arrest anyone caught smuggling moonshine in to this fine establishment.
There a few characters in the bar who might engage you in a game of chance for a small wager. They get a little upset when you clean them out though. It’s good fun through and through.
