Drink Company, the people behind Washington’s hugely successful “Miracle on Seventh Street” Christmas Pop-Up Bar, are at it again. And who can blame them, when this Spring’s even more successful Cherry Blossom PUB had customers waiting in line for up to three hours to get in.
It’s going to be worse this Summer.
The 2016 Christmas Pop-Up Bar contained a salute to last year’s breakout Netflix hit, Stranger Things, which, as you can see by the pictures at the above link, included an alphabet wall, erratically strung Christmas lights, and a shrine to Stranger Things fan favourite Barb.
Now let’s think. What TV show will everybody in the known universe be obsessed with in Summer of 2017?
No, not that—the Impeachment trial isn’t until next year. Guess again. (Hint: Check the title of this item.)
The masks in the Hall of Faces are plaster casts of the faces of Game of Thrones PUB staff and friends.
Guests can occupy the Iron Throne itself, but only for as long as it takes to get a quick photo. Sort of like visiting a department store Santa Claus when you were young.
The bar under the Weirwood Tree serves drinks with GoT-related names like “The North Remembers” and “The Lannisters Send Their Regards”. I suspect the biggest hit will be a tequila and grapefruit tonic called “Shame”. Whenever it’s served, the costumed bartenders will ring a bell and shout “Shame”.
The Game of Thrones PUB opened this week, and will run until the last episode of this year’s series, which ends on 27 August 2017. The bars will close at 7PM every Sunday night, so customers and staff can watch GoT at home.
