This Game of Thrones themed pop-up bar will fulfil your dream of visiting Westeros!
Just when all the Game of Thrones fans thought that it wouldn’t be easier for them to wait for the premier of season 7; Drink company came up with its most anticipated Game of Thrones themed pop-up bar in Washington DC to shoot up the inquisitiveness amongst the fans.
Drink Company and team transformed 3 bars namely Mockingbird Hill, Eat the Rich, and Southern Efficiency into different parts of the Seven Kingdoms and opened its doors for the guests last Wednesday.
As you enter the space, the North, home of the Starks welcomes you with its “Weirwood tree” which stretches from behind the bar up to the ceiling.
Next, you move into the assassins temple i.e. the house of the Black and White where the bar is the clone of The Hall of Faces featuring plastic moulds of Drink Company’s employees, family, and friends.
Next door, you see a 3D mural of a dragon lashing out a fire in the city of Mereen. And not to mention, the iconic Throne Room AKA Red Keep which is flooding everybody’s Instagram and Snapchat these days.
In the Red Keep you’ll witness the Armoury decorated with the banners of each and every house introduced in Game of Thrones.
The thematic cocktail menu is just the icing on the cake. All the drinks you will come across here are much of a tribute to the show and its characters.
Say for instance: “The North Remembers,” a concoction of Scotch, Sherry, Falernum, coconut which is served in the iconic horn-shaped tankards.
You are expected to leave your ID at the bar if you order this drink. This is to make sure that you don’t run away with the Tankard.
If you’re a going to order tequila then you will have to go through the Walk of Shame! Well, not exactly how Cersei Lannister did it in the show but the bartender will yell “Shame Shame!” and ring the bell while offering you the drink.
The Lady Mormont, with gin, honey, and passion fruit, is served in a glass bear. (Because House Mormont is from Bear Island. Did you know that? Of course, you did, nerds.)
Another drink, the Dothraquiri is definitely worthy of a horse-bound horde of warriors, with subtle chocolate and banana notes accentuating the citrus daiquiri; garnished with tiny dragon toys.
