The delightfully peculiar Hendrick's Gin is inviting Chicagoans to open their minds, unfasten their senses and join "Voyages Into the Unusual" for three nights of extraordinary experience inside of Salvage One on Hubbard. Coined the "Curiositorium", the space will have a grand Explorer's Lounge, a frenzied Botanist's Den and a full scale Apothecary.
This has been set up in a few other cities before, and it looks like by the photos on Curiositorium portion of the site, that they'll outfit the space with more old-world Monty Python-meets early 1900's type apothecary items rather than Kiehl's, La Mer or VenEffect. If you want an invite to experience the Apothecary next week Tuesday through Thursday, you must submit an application and give them a place to send you a "clootie dumpling".
