As if you needed another reason to catch Gatsby fever, famed London department store Harrods has launched a pop-up bar to celebrate the hotly anticipated film, which is finally in theaters as of Friday May 10. Now through May 20, the 1920s-style art-deco bar takes over the luxury store’s underground Tasting Room and Wine Shop with cocktail-making demonstrations and specialty libations by Courvoisier, Hendrick’s and Johnnie Walker available for consumption. A period-themed, ticketed evening on Friday night will let guests enjoy the sounds of a jazz band trio, indulge in canapés and be treated to a mixology master class. Didn’t make it across the pond? Harrods has drink recipes available online along with a host of Gatsby-inspired wares in its Summer of Now shop, where customers can snag Gatsby-esque items, including a beaded Saint Laurent jacket, a Lanvin art-deco bracelet and Charlotte Olympia heels straight off the store’s e-commerce video. Or, you can always get the ultimate Gatsby fix -- actually seeing the movie.
Through May 20, 87-135 Brompton Rd., Knightsbridge, London. harrods.com
