OWL BAR

You always wanted to hang out with some very cuddly owls friends ? This is now possible!

Annie the owl  will open an owl pop up bar for a week in London that will be showing up at a secret location in London’s Soho neighborhood.

The organisers are seeking to raise funds for owls sanctuaries through a special event that invites people to relax, enjoy smoothies, and learn about owls in a unique setting.

Tickets cost 20 pounds for entry and two smoothies, but will be distributed by ballot because, as of publication, there are more than 43,000 people interested in visiting the owls! The proceeds of the event, organized by Locappy, will be donated to the Barn Owl Centre, an organisation dedicated to protecting owls in the UK. The pop-up bar will be open March 19-25 from 8:30 pm until 2:00 am.
