If you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for Season Two of the hit Netflix show Stranger Things, here’s something to ease the way: You can now go back in time to the ‘80s of the show.
Last Friday, the world was introduced to The Upside Down—a Stranger Things pop-up bar (The Upside Down is an alternate dimension in the show). Chicago Eater reports we have Emporium Popups for this genius idea.
From the blinking Christmas lights to the Byers' family coach, it meets and surpasses our expectations. It’s anything but normal.
The locale offers seven cocktails, including the waffle-inspired "Eleven's Eggo's." Sadly, there's no food, but you can always heat up some waffles in the toaster once you get home.
According to Refinery29, other drink options include “the Mouthbreather (gin, caramelized pineapple, lime, Ancho Reyes, and Hellfire Shrub) and the She's Our Friend & She's Crazy (Reposado tequila, amaretto, lemon, and strawberry).”
If you’re in the Chicago area, especially if you're near Logan Square, dress up as your favorite character and take a walk down to 2367 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Hopefully you’re a night owl, since the bar’s only open from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Friday, 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Saturday and 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Sunday. And hurry, because the space is only open through September, according to Mashable. Season 2 comes out on October 27, leaving only a month of waiting time left after the bar closes—just enough time to rewatch Season 1.
If you haven’t watched the supernatural show yet, here’s why you definitely should (hint: it involves amazing child actors and the perfect amount of scariness). It’s available on Netflix, and it’s incredibly relatable, powerful and inspirational. Plus, it's already been renewed for Season 3!
