DO YOU HAVE A DRY ICE POLICY?
All our cocktails are served with theatre, and some are also served with dry ice. Dry ice is fun and safe when handled correctly, so if your drink is served with a straw, please use it. The dry ice in our bubblebath cocktail can be found at the bottom of the glass and if there’s no straw, please allow time for the dry ice to disappear and enjoy the show. Please don’t handle the dry ice with your hands, instead sit back, enjoy its theatre and the aroma of the cocktail.
