London’s First Wandering Bar
Created by the people behind Bourne and Hollingsworth and Blitz Party, The Fourth Wall is a new roaming bar concept that moves to a new secret location each weekend.
Designed to recreate the familiar within the unfamiliar, The Fourth Wall is a complete replica of Bourne and Hollingsworth bar of Rathbone Place that will be touring London and occupying a different location every week. From the distinctive flowered wallpaper and the table cloths, to the furniture and the cocktail glasses, The Fourth Wall will completely duplicate the original Fitzrovia venue but, like a film set or a theatre prop, this wandering bar will be packed away at the end of the night and move on.
The wandering bar is a completely original drinking and social concept. Like stepping into the looking glass, The Fourth Wall has created a known world set within the unknown. Guests will walk into a space, be it a warehouse or ballroom, then walk through another door into a completely new venue. The Fourth Wall indulges in its artifice. Rather like breaking down the fourth wall in theatre, this bar can be seen in its raw form as a specially constructed installation, but once inside, guests will feel as though they are back in the original bar NoHo. The Fourth Wall will challenge their previous perceptions and experiences of Bourne and Hollingsworth by creating new, but familiar ones in their place.
Situated in a discreet basement in Fitzrovia and with a capacity of 80, Bourne and Hollingsworth boasts eccentric yet extravagant interiors reminiscent of a stylised 1920s living room. Since its launch, the bar has become a firm favourite among Londoners who crave its quirky interiors and unique atmosphere, which rests comfortably between that of gentleman’s club and a vintage tearoom. The Fourth Wall will be the newest adventure for this tiny bar that has launched events such as Blitz Party, Prohibition, Chap Olympiad and Belle Epoque.
Guests at The Fourth Wall will be able to enjoy the sharp and sophisticated cocktail concoctions found at Bourne and Hollingsworth, as well as experiencing the music, atmosphere and décor synonymous with its twin.
The Fourth Wall’s wandering location will remain a secret to those not in the know. As the weeks go on, there will be hints left around London in the form of notes, emails, messages and codes, as the locations get harder to find out about.
