Disclaimer: This pub is was a pop-up pub, so is no longer available to visit. (I’m sorry for the delay in posting it).
During the World Cup, Benefit Cosmetics opened up a pop-up pub called Gabbi’s Head. It was situated on
Drury Lane, London.
The World Cup is a time mainly associated with men, but this pub made it special
for all those ladies, too. Various other bloggers have written about their experience,
so make sure you go and read all their posts too.
Upon arrival, you get greeted with these super cute laminate passes which are supposed to be worn around your neck. There's not much to say about this, but I thought it was a cute idea and makes you feel like VIP.
The first thing I noticed when I got there was the colour. Everything was pink… When I say everything, I really mean everything. From the sofa’s, to the wallpaper, to the foosball table, to the actual drinks themselves. The bar was on the left hand side and the seating took up the remaining space. The interior was super cute and girly, with two or three TV’s scattered around, displaying the World Cup on it. The pub was based around football and makeup, a great combination to satisfy all.
I seriously felt the need to show you guys these amazing drink mats, too… I even asked one of the Benebabes if she could give me some new ones to take home with me… They had a massive stock of them, so my wish was fulfilled, haha!
When I finally sat down, I was faced with a menu. I had just eaten so decided to stick with drinks.
The drink I had chosen to have was this non-alcoholic cocktail. It was probably the most expensive drink I have ever purchased (I think it was around £8.00), but I have to admit, it was the most delicious drink I had ever purchased, too! It consisted of a mixture of ingredients including mint, raspberries, pomegranate, lemon and more. I tried to replicate this at home and let me assure you, it didn’t taste half as good!
So I would definitely recommend trying it if you ever get the chance. I also thought the glasses themselves were super cute, but that’s pretty irrelevant!
Also in the pub, two Benebabes were doing makeup on people who wanted it. They did a great job, (which I would know as I was closely observing, haha). A pub for girls, where you can have your makeup done… How can I get any better? Unfortunately though, I don’t live in
so we were restricted for time and I wanted to go and explore more of , so I decided to
leave having my makeup done. They used all Benefit products, of course! London
Before leaving I popped into the toilets to wash my hands, (I’m a clean freak and
isn’t the cleanest of places). The toilets were also (very surprisingly) cute
and quirky. They made everything so original, for example instead of saying
“Caution hot water” they had a sign saying “Hey hot stuff, this water’s just as
hot as you! Take care”- I found this super adorable. They also had ‘makeup
tips’ on the door, which was very helpful! London
Well, that's it... I just wanted to share this experience with you, because I thought it would appeal to some of you girly girls. Again, I'm sorry for the late post, if Benefit ever open another pub (or anything of that kind) I would encourage you to go. It's so original. It's most defiitley not the type of thing you'd see on a day to day basis.
Hope you girls liked this post, thank you for reading!
