The Absurd Bird in Soho, a branch of The Absurd Bird fried chicken chain, offered a Porn Star Martini to its customers.
Nothing unusual in that, you might say. But this Porn Star Martini cost £400.
The chain itself claimed that its offering – the ‘Orgy Martini Experience’ – was “the UK’s biggest porn star martini” and large enough for four sharing.
Of course there was more. For there was also the chance that the prospective purchaser(s) might be joined by one of two real-life porn stars in the flesh, for the cocktail had not been given the bird by porn stars Barbi or Drew – depending on your proclivity – who were on hand for customers during the whole of February.
So popular was this offer that the outlet could only take bookings by e-mail – Oh and the prices started from £400, by the way!
This Soho branch of the chain sits cheek-by-jowl with the first-ever strip club in Soho, Paul Raymond’s Review Bar, opened in 1958.
