Netflix have ordered the closing of a ‘Stranger Things’-themed Chicago bar.
Named ‘The Upside Down’ pop-up, after a dark parallel universe in ‘Stranger Things,’ the bar opened in August and has been a hit ever since! With interesting drinks like a cocktail called ‘Eleven’s Eggos’ with lots of syrup, and decor that matched the show, how couldn’t it be.
Though being the party poopers they are, Netflix have sent the bar’s owners a cease and desist. The letter reads: “Unless I’m living in the Upside Down, I don’t think we did a deal with you for this pop-up. You’re obviously creative types, so I’m sure you can appreciate that it’s important to us to have a say in how our fans encounter the worlds we build.” The bar will close on October 1 while Season 2 of the show premiers on October 27.
