Dave Arnold set to open new lab
It's been rumoured for a while, but now officially reported, courtesy of Grub Street, that Dave Arnold's cocktail bar, Booker and Dax, will be setting up a lab in a similar style to both your truly, Drink Factory and Momofuku, responsible for feeding the bar but also plugging a hole in bar only equipment.
"The original idea of Booker & Dax was to build equipment. The bar came first, but it’s an offshoot of the space we haven’t started yet...... however, that's set to change."
The bar has found a 700 square foot space which will be home to pieces of kit not just for the bar but eventually for home as well.
As you would expect the details of exactly what will be built in this, no doubt, magical space are being kept firmly close to the chest. However Arnold did hint that carbonation would be on the cards early.
Arnold continued… "One of my eventual goals is to build something that’s in people’s homes." Good news for any home cocktail enthusiast and great news for the bar industry!
