An Actual Owl Café Is Coming To London In March
It’ll be a hoot.
There are in Japan and they are amazing.
And now there’s one coming to London.
Annie the Owl is a pop-up cocktail bar, with OWLS.
The organizers tell BuzzFeed Life in an email:
“We are a bunch of people who run events and pop ups. We thought it was a good idea to bring this concept to London and also help the conservation of owls in the UK. For this we are working with Locappy (a startup, their mascot is an owl and they are passionate about it, hence they are helping us out) and The Barn Owl Centre.”
The bar will be open for one week in March, from the 19th to the 25th.
On their Facebook page, the organisers explain that “Owls like the nights! They are nocturnal, hence Annie the Owl is not a café but a bar.”
The owls are professionals, the organisers tell BuzzFeed Life.
“There will be a minimum of five owls. All owls featured on the site (above) will be present at the venue/event. We would like like to add that all owls are trained to be around public and they will be accompanied by professional falconers.”
Tickets cost £20 per person, and include two drinks.
Each session lasts two hours, and there will be 100-120 places per day.
The profits from ticket sales will be donated to The Barn Owl Centre, a charity which helps conservation of wildlife and birds in the UK.
