The force seems to be super strong with New York this holiday season as a Star Wars-themed bar has recently opened in Soho, and it is full of themed food, drinks, and events.
DarkSideBar, is located at 201 Lafayette Street between Kenmare and Broome Streets and is open through January 14 for the Star Wars fans and offers “an immersive galactic experience.”
Fans are flocking to this space where there are events and parties like themed dance and DJ nights. Costumes are encouraged though it is not necessary. They have drink six custom cocktails: Red Force, Blue Force, The Galaxy, The Dark Side, The Imperial, and The Mindtrick.
The Imperial is a blend of spices, maple extract, rum, citrus juice, and cayenne that is lit on fire and the Galaxy has black vodka, fruit extracts, a few “secret liquors,” and smokes. The food includes “tentacles on sticks” and “Bantha fodder.”
The pop-up is taking place in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles. Here in NYC, tickets — $33 per person with two included drinks — are available here, or people can try to walk in for $40.
