- Cocktails in Alice’s wonderland

One of my manager used to call me Alice, simply because according to him, I follow rabbits in their holes a bit too often… Well, ok, maybe… The thing is that I have always been a fan of Alice in Wonderland so when I heard about ‘Calloh Callay’ in Shoreditch and the fact that we go to the toilet through a wardrobe door, I straight wanted to see this world.

Calloh Callay in my friend Alice’s world means something like ‘Oooh joy!!!’

Here are a few verses from her wonderland :

And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?

Come to my arms, my beamish boy!

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’

He chortled in his joy.

Even me, good friend of her, I couldn’t get it so I thought that maybe a few cocktails would help…

Design a bit crazy, no style really, waitresses all wearing a sparkling mask with feathers, paper garlands Venezuelan kind everywhere… Is there any special occasion? No, the staff dress up very often, they represented that day a Venezuelan alcohol brand, hence the garland, but that’s all, nothing more really, it was like a normal Sunday…



But tomorrow or next week it will change, it depends on their mood, the occasion, the alcohol they promote…

The cocktails and snacks menu changes as well for the same reasons.


I was very excited to go to the loo through the wardrobe door which also lead to another cocktail room, crazier, still with no style at all, mixing antique furniture with modern lamps and weird wall-paper.




Yummy spicy snacks, short cocktails list and I was right, after a few of them you can understand more Alice’s poetry verses, have a long conversation with the Cheshire cat and celebrate your unbirthday!

Thank you Alice and Calloh Callay !
