If you feel like you just can’t wait for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and you need a drink to take the edge off, you’re in luck. Come over to the Dark Side, sit down, and enjoy a cocktail in an intergalactic universe. A new “Star Wars” themed pop-up bar called The Dark Side Bar will be open starting November 15th in New York, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C.
The Dark Side is the latest bar from pop-up professional Zach Neil. His other pop-up projects include the “Anchorman” themed bar Stay Classy, the Tim Burton pop-up known as Beetle House, and the America Bar. The décor at the Dark Side will make you feel like your making your way through the Death Star, but you won’t encounter Supreme Leader Snoke, Kylo Ren, or any Storm Troopers. However, you will be able to experience nightly events and parties including intergalactic burlesque shows (really), dance and DJ nights, trivia, and even alien speed dating for the singles of our galaxy.
While the décor and events at the bar are a hard act to follow, the cocktail list will not disappoint. Condé Nast Traveler reports that the drink menu will include the Galaxy, Red Force, Mindtrick, and the Dark Side. Some of the drinks will even feature glowing LED ice cubes, dry ice, and black and silver sugar rims. Reservations cost $33 and include two drinks per person, and walk-ins are $40 at the door.
The film won’t be in theaters until December 14th, but you don’t have to wait for the movie premiere to wield your light saber. May the force be with you.
