Drink Company’s signature Pop-Up Bar experience returns for fall with the Death Becomes Us, hosted in partnership with Brightest Young Things.
Launching Thursday October 11, 2018 through November 4, 2018 the new true crime-inspired bar will feature three chilling vignettes devoted to some of the most heinous — and most famous — cases in history.
In addition to delivering scares just in time for Halloween, the Death Becomes Us PUB will serve as a precursor to BYT’s DBU True Crime Festival happening November 3 and 4 at Lisner Auditorium.
From the unsolved to the unspeakable, Death Becomes Us PUB is an homage to all manner of murders and misdeeds, with decor and cocktails inspired by these three infamous flashpoints from the past.
- The Black Dahlia room will feature walls smeared with newspaper clippings from the case, handmade paper replicas of the haunting flowers and an oversized portrait of Elizabeth Short painted by frequent Drink Company collaborator, artist Andrew Funk.
- To honor the Salem Witch Trials, there will be a highly Instagrammable two-headed stockade, a canopy of birch branches and a BYT-powered “witches workshop.”
- Elizabeth Bathory will get her due with Drink Company’s version of a Victorian dungeon, complete with a chandelier, opulent fabric canopy, a vintage clawfoot tub — and blood dripping from the walls. If that’s not scary enough, a life-size portrait of the bloodthirsty noblewoman herself will face a large mirror so that she can survey all.
Death Becomes Us PUB will be open October 11 through November 4; Sunday through Thursday, 5pm to 12:30am; Friday and Saturday, 5pm to 1:30am. 1839 7th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 21+ to Enter. Cocktails are priced $12 to $14 each.
