As Stella Artois' Night Chauffeur project launches, Dazed gets a peek-a-boo into the world seen from the backseat of a 1960s Citroen DS cruising London's late night streets
And we're off... the Night Chauffeur project - Stella Artois' latest and mysterious late night tour - kicked off the other night. But it's not too late; pop down to any of the selected water holes at any time (see list below) before their events and, with a bit of luck, you and a friend will be whisked off in 1960s Citroen DS for a guided tour of London's city streets. But first you're invited to interact and verbally spar with actors in the pub. Prepare to be shocked, surprised and entertained by these creative actors reenacting scenes from dark, mysterious and secretive spy movies from a bygone era.
The Night Chauffeur project, launching Stella's new premium lager Black, began two nights ago, but is ongoing to November 25, when it concludes in Twickenham's The Old Goat. Watch this film clip from the first Night Chauffeur endeavour to get a taste of what it's like, and be sure to head down one of the participating pubs - all you have to do is to purchase a pint of Stella Black and leave your details, and it might be you in the backseat of a vintage car, spying on suspicious men in trench coats and slouch hats.
