From the folks behind the Game of Thrones and Stranger Things Pop-Up Bars, comes PUB DREAD!
The season is ripe for horror, which will dominate the spaces formerly known as Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency, and Eat the Rich [masked]th Street NW).
Horror fans are cautiously welcome to sip drinks in The Haunted Forest, which features blinking eyes, creepy creatures, and soundtracks that call back to classic horror moments. The Dollhouse features the most disturbing tribute to grandma’s vintage toy collection with dolls that seem to have minds of their own. The Crypt features coffins, tombstones, and room for more to join the dead.
Horror films rule the drink menu, with inspiration taken from childhood favorites and true chillers that still spook adults. A Zombie variation called BRAINS! pays homage to Night of the Living Dead, and is served in a skull tiki mug and topped with a candy brain. The coffee concoction that signifies the start of fall brought forward David S. Pumpkins, a mix of rums, sherry, pumpkin, spice, and coconut.
METRO: Eat the Rich is about a two minute walk from Shaw-Howard Metro Station, along the Green and Yellow lines. Use the Howard University exit when coming out of the station.
The pop up bars at Eat the Rich are famous for their long lines. I’m hoping that it won’t be so bad at 1:00 on a Sunday. That being said, I will get in line around 11:00 and post updates about the line to get in. If it’s too bad, we will try again on a later date.
