D&D London’s Skylon bar is immersing its guests in Cloud 9, a new pop-up with sparkling Laurent-Perrier cocktails and euphoric cloud installations.
The Cotton Cloud (pictured) is served in a champagne coupe with a pink cotton candy ball, containing wild berry cordial, rose perfume and Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée.
Lucid Dreaming is made with truffle honey syrup, Armagnac and Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée, presented under a glass dome bell jar with a floral aroma, while Up & Away features candied ginger, orange bitters, Mandarin Napoleon and Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée. The cocktail is finished with a sugar nest.
Illuminated cloud formations and sun spheres are suspended above the central bar at Skylon with ivory and pale pink paper peonies, gold and white lanterns and balloon canopies with hanging Laurent-Perrier bottles entwined amongst them.
A bitter almond cake with cassis consommé served beneath a cloud carries the theme into the kitchen.
Cloud 9 launches on 12 February and is available until the end of March.
