Hidden behind a velvet curtain is a world of wonder and childhood mystique, with row upon row of brightly-colored sweets jars packed with nostalgic delights — think Cola Bottles, Liquorice All Sorts and Chupa Chups — to tantalize and tease the tastebuds. And, of course, there’s also a range of alcoholic candy-flavored concoctions to match.
Choose from no less than nine cocktails, two champagne cocktails and six super-strong shots. Included in the pick ‘n mix selection are sweet treats like the pink-and-white ‘Miss Marshmallow’ made with raspberry and vanilla vodka, topped with a marshmallow. Then there’s the electric blue ‘Candy Cane’ made from Koko Kanu, Blue Curaçao, Lichi Li Liqueur and gin, served with a striped candy cane; and ‘Liquorice Lady’ made from Black Sambuca and vodka, garnished with a Liquorice Lace.
Grown-up guys and gals can even customize their cocktails with a range of flavored sherbet rims to choose from for a truly bespoke trip down memory lane. Fun and flamboyant, the Bon Bon Bar at Volupté offers long-forgotten flavors in the heart of the City — all with an alcoholic twist. And in the otherwise stale, corporate environs of the City, the Bon Bon Bar is a sweet treat indeed. For more information, see Volupte-Lounge.com.
