Yesterday, we were lucky enough to party Harley Quinn style thanks to Warner Bros. and DC’s 2-day pop Roller Disco event in the heart of London to celebrate the upcoming release of ‘Birds of Prey (and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
Open to the public on Tuesday 28th until Thursday 30th January at The Steel Yard Club just a short walking distance from Cannon Street Underground Station, the event consists of two colourful neon-lit rooms to recreate the zany personality of one Harley Quinn.
The rainbow-coloured spectacular hits you square in the eyes as you enter room number 1 on first entry. Any self-respecting roller disco needs to have that all-important bar for a refreshment or two. The event offers both an alcoholic cocktail and a number of non-alcoholic cocktails for those still partaking in dry January. We, of course, don’t like that kind of restriction so we dived in and opted for the Queen of Mayhem – a cocktail enough sweet enough to blow your socks off.
Ever wanted to be transformed into Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn? Well, Room 1 also consists of a Glamstation where thanks to Make-Up company Urban Decay you can get that all-important makeover before picking up your own Birds of Prey tote bag and heading for that photo opportunity.
Having to be seen out in public after the event, I passed up on the offer of the makeover but couldn’t resist picking up Harley Quinn’s hammer for the photo opp before I went on my breaking faces spree.
The centrepiece of the event is a Roller Disco – a feast of neon and Day-Glo, where guests can skate to a soundtrack inspired by the film. I did attempt to do my bit and take part, I got the roller skates on which proceeded in taking me at least 5 minutes to actually stand up. In fear of landing on my backside, I ventured all of about 5 yards before deciding it might actually be safer to just stand back and watch all the younger, more nimble participants having fun.
For those less nimble on wheels, there is also another bar (only providing the Mocktails) and an opportunity to be able to test your strength on the Birds of Prey Hi Striker.
By the time you’ve exerted yourself on the roller rink, you can then head upstairs for some much-needed grab in the form of a tasty Pizza slice or two and for those with a sweet tooth why not help yourself to some sweets for the Candy counter or even gobble down some Candyfloss.
