Augmented reality dining comes to The Refuge

A new augmented reality drinking and dining experience will soon be arriving at The Refuge, bringing nature to life as you eat.

Launching on Friday 27 October, the ‘Garden of Wonder’ by Perrier-Jouët is an interactive landscaped garden built into an 18-seater dining room table, allowing guests to bring nature to life via augmented reality butterflies, hummingbirds and dragonflies, whilst enjoying a chilled glass of Perrier-Jouët’s newest cuvée, Blanc de Blancs NV. With a focus on sustainable beauty, the garden draws on inspiration from the natural world, highlighting both the fragility and extraordinary strength and beauty of the earth.

Highlighting the concept of ‘rewilding’, the garden will feature flowers, plants, herbs, grasses, miniature trees and flowing water and will be animated by a breeze that will gently billow across it, rustling the grass and leaves. Above the garden, suspended from great branches of willow hang the sky gardens; ferns and flowers with elegantly twisted branches create a canopy over the entire installation. This exquisite habitat will ignite the senses and encourage visitors to take a moment to carry the message of sustainability beyond the garden.

The Garden of Wonder by Perrier-Jouët will be open from Friday 27 October until Sunday 12 November. The experience will be accompanied by selection of Champagne flight tastings and floristry classes.
