Stranger Things themed pop-up bar is returning to Edinburgh

A team of pop-up bar specialists in Edinburgh have announced their latest theme – and it’s sure to have Stranger Things fans excited.

To celebrate season four of the hit Netflix show, The Cocktail Geeks are bringing their hugely-popular themed pop-up bar, ‘The Upside Down’, back to the Capital.

Fans of Stranger Things can look forward to a pop-up bar full of themed and classic cocktails, 80s nostalgia aplenty, and a return of the Demagorgan.

‘The Upside Down’ is a reference to the alternate reality which the residents of Hawkins, Indiana get caught up in – and will be located at the Cocktail Geeks’ home at The Arches on East Market Street.

Posting on their social media, the team said: “Our world is turning upside down. Join us as our world turns upside down with dark twists on classic 80s cocktails, Hard Shakes and Boozy I-Scream floats.

“Bookings are now open for our strange new menu launching Wednesday 8th June 2022!”
