Water Tower Turned London Residence

Water Tower Turned London Residence | Epicurean Adventures | Scoop.it

Repurposing old buildings is an amazing way to get an eclectic vibe going with traditional, sturdy architecture and new sleek elements. Areas like London are great for this type of dwelling, with one of our more recent favorites being this old revived water tower turned four bedroom home.Originally built in the 1800′s and purchased again 4 years ago, Leigh Osborne and Graham Voce set out to make this an amazing space with room to sprawl out, entertain and enjoy the view. With multiple well appointed bedrooms, a rooftop terrace and plenty of space abound, this home provides an amazing 360 degree view of the London skyline. Amazing!

Cocoon Tent Tree House

Cocoon Tent Tree House | Epicurean Adventures | Scoop.it

The Cocoon Tree is a spherical tent that can allow you to sleep literally anywhere your heart desires, well anywhere that there’s trees that is. The aluminum built structure is made of 12 rods on the top half, and 12 shorter rods on the bottom half, and connects to the surrounding trees allowing you to sleep suspended over the ground. The biggest benefit is the fact that you will dramatically reduce the amount of insects and pests found out in the wild, and you will also be able to set up camp on uneven grounds in places you couldn’t have ever imagined without the tent. The best part is that there is a 2.4 meter circular bed built for two. The Cocoon Tent is not yet available.

16 of the Best Rum-Centric Cocktail Bars in America

16 of the Best Rum-Centric Cocktail Bars in America | Epicurean Adventures | Scoop.it

Over the past half-decade the tiki bar – kitsch still included – and the Caribbean-themed rum bar have been re-imagined on both coasts, with notable additions in between. One thing both of these trends have in common: rum. Though many classic rum-based drinks associated with 1950s Havana and the tiki craze of the 1930s and 40s are finding their way into top cocktail bars across the country, there are more than a dozen great bars that have hedged on them entirely. Below, a map of some of the best rum-centric cocktail bars in the country...
