Fans of the hit #Show Breaking Bad will have the opportunity to revive its crazy and very American plot line at a new bar, ABQ, set to open in London this summer. Seb Lyall, the brainchild of the neighbourhood guide app Locappy, is the face behind this new cocktail bar, planning a grand opening for July.

It will be set up in a recreational vehicle (RV) similar to the one where characters Walt and Jake make drug crystal meth in the show, and it's going to look like a lab where people can "cook" up cocktails. The RV will be kitted out and able to house 20 to 22 people at one time. Visitors wanting to get the unique experience of "cooking" their own cocktails will have the help of expert mixologists.

ABQ, named after Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the show is set, will also be decorated with all kinds of paraphernalia common to the epic "cooking" sessions of White and Pinkman.

Of course, such offerings are not cheap. Eager customers will have to pay an entry fee, priced at £30 for a two hour session. Tickets will be released on a first come, first served basis. Currently, 24,772 fans have already signed up for the three-month event on ABQ's website.

The theme for the bar, which will be up and running for a limited three months time, serves the multitude of fans of the show - an American crime drama that tells the story of Walter White, a struggling high school chemistry teacher diagnosed with lung cancer. Together with his former studentJesse Pinkman, he turns to a life of crime, producing and selling crystallised methamphetamine to secure his family's financial future after he's gone.

Success has been huge, and after the finale and the subsequent sadness of the fans, AMC premiered a spin-off of Breaking Bad, called Better Call Saul, which opened to pretty good reviews. It follows the story of the lawyer James Morgan "Jimmy" McFill, six years before his appearance on Breaking Bad; events after the original series are briefly explored. But, as Walter White said, "we're just getting started." #Television #Alcohol
