Visit The Absinthe Parlour & Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Unnatural History Museum

The Absinthe Parlour

A drinker’s cabinet of wonder filled with unusual spirits, from the old world and new, together in one curious exhibition of extraordinary elixirs. Allow each round to provide you with a passage to the furthest corners of the world, transported to an experience outside the boundaries of time.

Seek and you shall find: hidden here are explorations of alchemy & magick, pleasure & fantasy, celebrating the point at which curiosity unlocks a world unknown.

The Last Tuesday Society’s Absinthe Parlour is truly a hidden treasure of East London.
