This week, retro-styled bar Control Room B inside Battersea Power Station launches Escape The Power Cut, an escape-room style experience. The 90-minute immersion into the Control Room’s former life as the centre of the power station will test players’ clue-solving skills as they’re asked to embrace their inner engineer, donning lab coats to decipher cryptic clues and complete problem-solving conundrums against the clock. Two cocktails are included as part of the experience – look out for ‘The Synchroscope’, made with Oxley gin, Essentiae lemon verbena liqueur, ginger and lemongrass cordial, pear purée, cloudy apple juice and fresh lime juice; and the ‘Gas Wash’, made with Grey Goose L’Original vodka, bergamot liqueur, passion fruit purée, fresh lime juice and tropical fassionola syrup. The experience costs £50pp.
