Named after the Bletchley Park codebreakers facility in England that is known for being the location where the Enigma machine cipher was cracked (if you haven’t already be sure to watch The Imitation Game), ‘The Bletchley’ is a cocktail bar in the Chelsea neighborhood of London ‘where Turing meets Sherlock.’ You want that mint-infused drink or white russian specialty? You have to play the part and solve a code! What’s really amazing is they claim no drink is served twice, and participants get to take home their coded cocktails inside envelopes delivered to their secret agent, complete with wax seal.

Looks like a cool place. I think it was originally only operating in April but they appear to still be taking RSVPs and posting social online, so if you’re anywhere near London you might want to consider EGKKIZKERDYBLMA.
Here are some additional ‘grams ‘n tweets from inside the bar by patrons and the bar itself:
Had a brilliant time @thebletchley helping the war effort by cracking codes on their enigma machine.
