To celebrate season three of the hit Netflix Show, Edinburgh-based drinks events company, The Pop Up Geeks are returning their themed bar 'The Upside Down' to the capital.

Fans of Stranger Things can look forward to a pop up bar full of themed and classic cocktails, 80s nostalgia and a return of the Demagorgan, from 7 June until 1 September in Edinburgh.

Posting on their social media, the team said: “We’re insanely excited to be stepping out of Westeros and into the Summer of 85 this June!

“We’ll be serving up Boozy Ice Cream Floats and Hard Shakes alongside a massive selection of classic 80’s cocktails… turned UPSIDE DOWN!

Not to mention, Gordon the Demagorgan will be making his long awaited return.

Grab your leg warmers and stock up on shoulder pads, then head on over to our website to book a table.”

As with the Games of Thrones pop up, the Upside Down will be held at the Edinburgh Arches at 27 East Market Street.

The Pop Up Geeks is still running their Game of Thrones themed bar, Blood and Wine, which included a wine tasting that allowed guests to “journey across the Seven Kingdoms” to taste the closest real world counterparts to the wines described in George.R.R.Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

The Blood and Wine pop up will until 26 May before the Upside Down takes over. And, if you’re a fan of Monty Python, the team are going to be hosting a Python inspired cocktail experience from September 2019.
