A visit to Moonshine Saloon will see you become a part of the story as you bring your own liquor and become the beating heart of a covert liquor operation.
With the Law previously coming close to catching Cassidy, the Saloon makes the perfect meet-point for new outlaws to join the gang and learn the art of smuggling and supplying illicit liquor during the Great American Frontier.
Clyde was raised by honest farmers but grew up hearing the stories of the Cassidy family’s colourful past of moonshining, rebellion and piracy – a far cry from life as a farmer. Following his father’s death, Clyde ran away from home, desperate for a life of adventure. Within a couple of years of riding on his own, Clyde was soon forming his own gangs, committing bank and train robberies throughout the Midwest.
Clyde was handsome and charismatic, attracting many women and hangers-on during his escapades. However, after breaking loose from a shootout in Dodge City, a badly wounded Clyde ends up in the small town of Coldwater and falls in love with Ada Adams, a saloon keeper who nurses Clyde back to health at her family’s saloon. Clyde gave up the outlaw life for Ada, and they became happily married.
Unfortunately, with Ada’s saloon was at risk of going bust, Clyde had to covertly return to his criminal ways to keep the saloon afloat. He followed in his family’s footsteps and started moonshining. But after a few years of moonshining in-house, Cassidy’s makeshift still can’t keep up with the high demand for moonshine, so he turns the saloon into a clandestine meeting point to strike deals with notorious moonshiners and distillers, and expand his Moonshine Empire.
Within the Saloon, outlaws can rub shoulders with the locals, try their luck at cards or dice games and enjoy delicious range of Moonshine Cocktails. However, discretion is paramount. With the Sheriff having come close to catching Cassidy before, a tip-off about the true covert nature of the Saloon may just be the opportunity to find evidence to see Cassidy’s empire crumble.
Throughout the experience, visitors are served bespoke, delicious cocktails that are expertly prepared by a world-class team of barkeeps who combine your illegally smuggled liquor with bitters, syrups, liqueurs and garnishes to make bespoke, contemporary and classic cocktails.
Moonshine Saloon, combining immersive theatre with a world-class cocktail drinking experience, transports all guests from the streets of East London to the streets of the Wild West on the promise of making a fortune in an illicit moonshine smuggling operation at the top of its game.
Created by Inventive Productions, Moonshine Saloon is one part of a trilogy of experiences that establish the legend of the Cassidy’s, a family of pirates, bootleggers and criminals. The other parts of the trilogy include the must-visit Alcotraz– the world’s first prison-themed cocktail experience, where Clyde Cassidy eventually serves time for his crimes, along with Pirates of The Hidden Spirit, where Clyde’s ancestor stole $2million in gold that fuelled their family empire.
