Come enjoy a beer at a new 3,000-square-feet pop-up bar in Washington D.C. dedicated to the HBO series based on George R.R. Martin’s novels.

The bar opened on June 21st.

Drink Company and Ommegang Brewery have collaborated to change three of its four bars (Mockingbird Hill, Southern Efficiency and Eat the Rich) into the “pop-up bar.”

You can enter any of the three and pick up a memorable experience.

The three bars were refurbished completely to mirror the domains of The House of Black and White, The North, the Red Keep and Meereen.

The bar contains the “Hall of Faces” from The House of Black and White.

Drink Company cunningly chosen to fill the “Hall of Faces” with plastic molds of their own employees, loved ones.

Although they’ve dedicated past pop-up bars to past themes like Super Mario Brothers or Stranger Things, it was only a matter of time until Drink Company’s CEO Angie Fetherston dedicated one to the cult HBO series.

“To quote the great George R.R. Martin, ‘there has to be a level of joy of what you’re doing,’ and we believe Game of Thrones is the seminal show of this decade,” said Fetherston in a statement.

And the bar definitely did not skimp out on the details!

Notwithstanding the Hall of Faces, the bar additionally highlights Daenarys’ dragons, which were made by aetist Andrew Herndon and Andrew Funk. Herndon painted the paintings on the divider while Funk made the 3D dragons take that regurgitates off “smoke.”

Drink Company wanted the bar to be collaboratively designed.

Special projects director Matt Fox and administrator Adriana Salame Aspiazu contracted a few nearby artist to come in and plan diverse segments of the space.

But of course, a bar isn’t accommodating to the theme unless its drinks are too.

The bar has made a couple of mixed drinks named in spirit of the show. Visitors can arrange The North Remembers:  a mixture of Scotch, Cointreau, cloroso, falernum, and coconut and pineapple gomme.

An likewise arrange The Lannisters Send Their Regards.

This cocktail is a creation of vodka, Contratto bitter, fino sherry, lemon, strawberry and sparkling water. Try not to stress, you can likewise quit for Ommegang Brewery’s Bend the Knee – the official Game of Thrones beer.

If you’re more into wine, you can order The Imp’s Delight, which uses two fortified wines (probably what Tyrion Lannister drinks).

On the off chance that you need to get somewhat wild with some tequila, you can arrange a tequila and grapefruit tonic drink called Shame, which is in all probability in commitment to Cersei Lannister’s “walk of atonement.”

For a more beautifying drink, you can arrange the Dracarys, a sherry mai tai with salt that has a small dragon serpenhanging off of the side.

Despite the fact that the Dracarys is named after Daenerys’ call to the dragons, you won’t discover any fire on the cocktail. You can, be that as it may, find burnt star anise on the Dothraquiri.

There are two cocktails that come with very special glassware.

So special that the bar requires the customers to temporarily give up their ID as collateral. Thieves who try to steal such precious items will have to pay the iron price!

It’s not all about the drinks. They are offering you food too.

via

But don’t get your desires up for any fine feasting. Since the group thought a food service would just back everything else off, they chose to simply offer snacks like meat jerky and spiced nuts.

The show’s epic soundtrack will also be playing out of sight all through the bar.

But the show’s references don’t stop there! “What really gives people the experience, in my opinion, is how much the staff and the guests get into it,” Fetherston said.

Both employees and clients would come into the bar completely spruced up like one of the characters from series.

via

“We had a staff [member] on the first day show up in full Unsullied armor, or dress up like Khaleesi in different seasons. Similarly with the guests, they really buy in, participate and enhance the experience by diving into it like that.”

This particular space is actually well known for being various creative pop-up bars.

The latest themed space was devoted to cherry blossoms. It had lines that would quickly create and hover around the piece just to enter. We don’t expect anything less for the new Game of Thrones bar!

The main missing piece of this Game of Thrones bar is week by week screenings of the new episodes.

via

However, it’s better of this way as the bar is far too crowded and loud of a place to actually watch an episode that’ll need a viewer’s complete and utter attention.

The series’ long awaited seventh season will be coming out this July 16th.

via

This special pop-up bar will stay open and available until the show’s season finale, which is scheduled to air on August 27th.

The bar is at 7th Street North West.

via

We exceedingly prescribe taking the Shaw Metro as it’s just a couple of steps far from the bar! Try not to drive there in light of the fact that (1) parking will be too hard to find and (2) will be drinking!

But don’t plan to drop by the bar on any Sunday evenings!

via

The bar shuts down at 7pm each Sunday night so everybody can return home so as to watch the most recent episode. “We didn’t have a choice; the three-eyed raven picked us, ,” Fetherston said. “This PUB is our love letter to the Seven Kingdoms and we cannot wait to share it with fellow fans.”
