You may be used to pop-up bars in D.C. being filled with bright colors and happy times, but this new bar may give you a little scare! Discover the new Halloween pop-up bar in Shaw this October!
From the team that brought you pop-up bars like Cherry Blossoms and Game of Thrones
, PUB Dread enters the scene for 31 days to help us celebrate Halloween! Located in the same space that housed the other pop-ups in Shaw, the bar will be decorated from floor to ceiling with cobwebs, spiders, and other things that go bump in the night. Much like past pop-ups, this bar is all about the theatrics. There will be forms of strobe lights and neon lights, and there's sure to be a ton of fog throughout! PUB Dread features three themed rooms: a haunted forest, a dollhouse room, and the crypt that's made to look like a cemetery.
As for the drinks on hand, pumpkin beer and other Halloween-inspired beers from across the world will be available, and much like the Game of Thrones
bar, themed cocktails will be served in creative cups ranging from skulls to Jack-o-Lanterns. The bar opens October 1 -- most likely to very long lines -- so plan to get there early! (Pro-tip: Many of the surrounding bars serve appetizers, in case you get hungry while you wait in line!). PUB Dread will be open Monday–Thursday, 5 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., Fridays and Saturdays, 5 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., and then from 1 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Sundays.
