The Little Mermaid Experience has opened in New York City. The theatrical cocktail experience combines performance art and cocktails and will be open through November 5, 2021.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid”–not the 1989 Disney flick–the experience features a variety of gifted performers telling the famous story. During the show, guests will enjoy two personalized, mermaid-themed cocktails and will also be able to solve riddles and clues to keep the story going. The entire story unfolds over 90 minutes and guests will be able to make their own cocktails during that time.
The event is managed by Hidden, a discovery platform for virtual and live experiences in over 30 cities around the world, the exact location of the event is only known to guests who purchase tickets. The location is kept secret and only unveiled to guests who purchase tickets.
Tickets for the Little Mermaid Experience run $55 per person. If tickets sell out, you can sign up for the waiting list for the second release of tickets.
For more information or to reserve a ticket, visit The Little Mermaid experience listing on Hidden’s official website.
Next up for Hidden will be a 90 minute topsy-turvy journey into the magical realm of Wonderland, where guests will be able to experience everything that is Alice. Come winter, an immersive Gastby experience will be put on by the company.
If you’re looking for other things to do in NYC, Grand Central Oyster Bar has announced it will be reopening in September. The underground booze and bivalve haven has been serving seafood to commuters, locals and tourists for over 100 years, but was forced to close for nearly 20 months–except for a short window last September–due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Also in NYC, earlier this month Great Jones Distilling Company became the first legal whiskey distillery to open its doors in Manhattan since the advent of Prohibition. Located in trendy NoHo the 28,000-square-foot, four-story space will feature a cocktail bar; an event space; a restaurant helmed by chef Adam Raksin (formerly of The Lambs Club, Per Se); and a tasting room to go along with its 500-gallon still.
