Inspired by a traditional Pall Mall gentleman’s club, Destination: London will carve out a small corner of timeless British style and sophistication on the Lower East Side,

Following a succession of sold out events in London, Shuttlecock Inc. will bring their irreverent pop-up dining series, Mile High, to New York for the first time Sept 24 – Oct. 4, 2014. Inspired by 1950s air travel, when legroom meant doing the twist and turbulence was a byproduct of the bar steward’s cocktail shaker, Mile High takes guests on a unique multi-sensory journey featuring mouth-watering food, thirst-quenching cocktails, toe-tapping music and interactive theater. Ticket prices are $120, including all food, two glasses of Champagne Taittinger and in-flight luxury travel essentials from Penhaligon’s. For more information or booking, please visit: , or call the 24-hour event concierges at Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.

Destination: London, Mile High’s first New York experience, will take place in a secret Manhattan location, jetting passengers back to the Golden Age of air travel when rush hour scrambles to the airport and shake downs at security were yet to be invented. Inspired by a traditional Pall Mall gentleman’s club, Destination: London will carve out a small corner of timeless British style and sophistication on the Lower East Side, a nod to the age of brandy and cigars, country pursuits and taxidermy. Filled with leather tomes, chesterfields and a touch of British eccentricity, Destination: London will surprise and delight even the most world-weary travelers.

Stepping through the front door, guests are handed a personalized boarding pass and retro passport at the check-in desk, allowing them to eat and drink ‘without let or hindrance’ throughout the night. After a crisp glass of Champagne Taittinger or two in the Departure Lounge, guests are called to board their flight to London. But instead of fighting for a window seat in a silver sardine can, travelers will find themselves transported into the heart of London’s poshest district for a night of food, drink and ‘in-flight’ entertainment.
With the kitchen helmed by talented Chef Oliver Templeton (Ollie), formerly the executive chef at Moro in London, guests will be treated to an expertly prepared four-course meal. Ollie will be putting his own unique twist on quintessentially British cuisine, consigning fish and chips to the history books in favor of Lightly smoked pigeon breast, chicory and pickled walnut, Confit sea trout, oyster emulsion, dill and kohlrabi. Bath chaps, poached baby vegetables and mustard. Treacle tart, clotted cream ice cream.

Started by the four Templeton cousins, Anna, Will, Ed and Ollie, in late 2012, Mile High is the latest award-winning success to come off their immersive experiences production line, Shuttlecock Inc. With innovative concepts ranging from The Great Indian Peninsula Railway to Rumble at the Deli, Shuttlecock Inc. have used their considerable talents to create unforgettable evenings combining flavor, design, performance and music.
