Are you Mad as a Hatter? Want to visit a world just like the book you love? For an immersive, topsy-turvy cocktail adventure, you will have to climb down the rabbit hole.

You will adore this if you like Alice in Wonderland. A boozy Mad Hatter Tea Party is coming to Charlotte. Tickets are now on sale for the whimsical pop-up experience that’s coming to a magical location on Yancey Road in Charlotte. On May 25th, 2022, the Wonderland tea party experience will open, and there will be multiple sessions over twelve weeks.

What You’ll Experience

You can expect some really magical things during your trip. You can expect to make your own liquid concoctions under The Mad Hatter’s watchful eye, and be prepared to get curious. Through the looking glass, you will enter a fantasy world where you will play croquet with flamingos, paint the roses red, and eat ‘Eat Me’ cake/cookies.

You will be able to solve riddles and challenges just like Alice. Once you do, you will unlock all the ingredients to create your own enchanted teapot cocktails. How yummy does that sound? It’s all fun and games until someone steals the Queen of Hearts tarts…off with her head! You can see a preview of the experience below.

If you love Alice in Wonderland then join the tea party to end all tea parties and experience the magic! This 90-minute alternate reality experience in Wonderland costs $45 per person and includes 2x bespoke cocktails and an ‘Eat Me’ cake. You can see more about tickets and the event here.
