Fox Opens World’s First Ever Bar Staffed by Mutants with Superpowers

The Grand Opening Marks the Launch of Highly Anticipated New Drama LEGION on 9th February 
Things are not what they seem at The Mutant Lounge; a new cocktail lounge and experience that opens its doors on Wednesday 8th February, to mark the launch of the highly anticipated U.S. drama LEGION only on FOX in the UK. The world’s first ever bar staffed by mutants with superpowers, members of the public can apply for free tickets to this extraordinary event. 
Already named one of the must-see shows of 2017, LEGION was inspired by the character from Marvel’s X-Men comics, with British actor Dan Stevens (Downton AbbeyBeauty & The Beast) in the title role.
Created by Noah Hawley (Emmy-winning FargoLEGION is not your traditional superhero show, and reality may not be all that it seems at The Mutant Lounge.  Guests will be able to experience a stunning recreation of the LEGION universe, complete with themed cocktails, canapes, and an exclusive screening of the pilot episode. Thrilling surprises will take place throughout the evening as the staffs’ superpowers are revealed.
To make a reservation for The Mutant Lounge, please visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/launch-event-at-the-mutant-lounge-tickets-31218616723?aff=es2. Reservations are available for Wednesday 8th February for seatings at 5:30-7:30pm and 8:30-10:30pm; limited to two guests per reservation.
LEGION is the story of David Haller (Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human.  Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years.  Now in his early 30s and institutionalised once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep – spending the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend and fellow patient Lenny (Aubrey Plaza, Parks and Recreation, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).
The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller, Fargo).  Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.  Visually stunning, blurring the lines between reality and fiction, witness the evolution of the unlikeliest of superheroes, as his struggle with reality could in fact make him one of the most powerful mutants ever known.
The series also stars Jean Smart (Fargo) as nurturing but demanding therapist Melanie Bird; Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) as her husband Oliver, a brilliant scientist; and Melanie’s team of specialists, including Jeremie Harris as Ptonomy Wallace, who can read the memories of others, Amber Midthunder as Kerry Loudermilk, and Bill Irwin (Interstellar) as Cary Loudermilk, a geneticist. 
LEGION premieres on FOX (Sky 124, Virgin 157, Talk Talk 422, and NOW TV) on Thursday 9th February at 9pm. The show is produced by FX Productions and Marvel Television, with executive producer Noah Hawley, an executive producer on the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning anthology series Fargo.
