There is an art to both magic and mixology, a performance in the act of illusion or concoction and techniques so refined that although you can see everything there is the chance that you miss the all-important step in the process. So, you go from understanding to awe in just a few moments and that’s what The Orientalist Spirits has in store for you when you attend Magic & Mixology.
On Saturday nights this month, Asia’s best illusionist Alexander Yuen will be performing at the five-person, by-appointment-only Tasting Room by The Orientalist Spirits—Asia’s multi-award-winning spirits house. Get ready for an intimate, personal and interactive show that will deceive and delight.
Guests will be treated to a surprising night of magic where they too will get in on the performance. Across 90 minutes, they’ll see Alexander Yuen blend stories with illusion and tales with magic to charm and entertain with aplomb. Using iPads he creates awe and wonder with objects appearing, transforming and disappearing from the screen with just—well, we’re not quite sure how.
In the past, Alexander Yuen has performed his craft of digital magic for luxury brands like Bvlgari, Hermes, Chopard and Chanel as well as for celebrities and special guests, including the President of Singapore. He creates bespoke shows, delivers enthralling performances and captivates both small and large audiences and now you can catch him in the act with a cocktail in your hand.
The charming candlelit night of magic at the Tasting Room by The Orientalist Spirits includes a craft cocktail on arrival by the experienced bar team. With only five people in the audience, you’ll be able to see everything and easily be able to order another round of drinks. And remember, magic is best experienced up close and cocktails are best when made by an experienced bartender right in front of your very eyes.
Magic & Mixology takes place on Saturday nights this July with multiple performances per night. However, you’re going to have to be quick if you want a seat at the table because shows are limited to just five people per performance.
