The Art of Duplicity is a secret, 1920’s styled speakeasy bar where attendees can only enter if they happen to have the right password or if their name is on the guest list.
The bar, designed to reflect the Prohibition culture of the USA, was founded by entrepreneur David Donde (founder of Truth Coffee) and award-wining mixologist Brent Perremore in October 2018. It has won the 2020 Cocktail Bar of the Year Award, and The Spirits Business considered it to be the ‘Bar to Watch in 2020’.
Once inside, the world of Al Capone, Mae West, and the era of the Great Gatsby awaits. The vintage bar with rare and interesting liquors takes centre stage. It is popular for its experimental and unconventional cocktails. The Hillbilly Breakfast Flip, for example, is a mixture of smoked maple syrup, bourbon, and quail eggs. This can be accompanied by tapas-style dishes, platters and bowls with peanuts.
As part of the fun, attendees are invited to adopt a new persona and come in their very best steampunk outfits. Tables are reserved in three-hour time slots.
There are jazz performances and poetry slams on Friday and Saturday nights.
Bookings are essential to gain access to the bar.
