Rekorderlig Mixed Reality Bar

Yes, visitors can step through a portal to enter a hyper-real world where ‘fruits and flavours come to life and the sun hangs high in the sky.’ The multi-sensory experience uses the latest Magic Leap headset technology to project holographic imagery and light waves together in the wearer’s vision. There may also be some fruit cider on offer too!

So to celebrate the boozy occasion, Amstel has created a first-of-its-kind pub, The Open Arms.
Using everyday garden fences – the barriers that usually keeps neighbours apart – Amstel is inviting Londoners to come down for one day only and visit a the one-off pub to enjoy a pint. Taking place on Friday, The Open Arms will be open for anyone in the city to come together and enjoy a complimentary bier on the banks of the River Thames.
