This 'Stranger Things' Pop-Up Bar Received The Coolest Letter From Netflix

By Mustafa Gatollari

One of the biggest reasons Stranger Things was such a huge success is because it managed to successfully capture the spirit of what it was like watching a paranormal '80s movie. There was a certain magic about those films, where everyday people and total losers were faced with crazy circumstances. It was a magic that we never thought we'd truly experience again — only to have Netflix recreate the magic and have our nostalgia wishes becoming a reality. 

The show's a master class in "good nostalgia" for accomplishing this and fomenting a newfound obsession with everything from the '80s, rather than something that is kitschy and overdone.

So it only makes sense that Emporium, a retro Arcade bar in Chicago, created a Stranger Things pop-up bar called "The Upside Down." It offers cocktails inspired by the show. Like "Eleven's Eggos," a drink that's garnished with a toasted piece of the weaponized child's favorite food.
