The latest pop-up bar coming to Chicago is inspired by the wildly popular series, “Squid Game.”
The thriller-drama that’s captivating Netflix viewers follows “hundreds of cash-strapped players (who) accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits — with deadly high stakes,” the streaming service’s synopsis reads of the “violent test of morality and humanity.”
Chicagoans can visit the “Squid Games”-inspired bar beginning Friday (November 5), and running through November 28. It’s coming to Replay Lincoln Park, at 2833 N. Sheffield Ave. Replay Lincoln Park notes that some of the highlights from the pop-up bar’s menu include “a very refreshing Soju and pomegranate cocktail, Korean cheesy corn dog and KPOP Thursday DJ with karaoke,” a Facebook status update reads.
“The popularity of this show right now is insane, so we wanted to pay tribute and continue the hype with a pop up inspired by the games for Chicagoans to immerse themselves in,” Mark Kwiatkowski, owner of Replay Lincoln Park, told NBC Chicago. COVID-19 protocols will be in place at the bar, which is open to patrons age 21 and older.
