Game of Thrones Bar | Located in Washington D.C.
Are you addicted to the Game Of Thrones series? Than you should book your ticket to the United States. Last week, a Game Of Thrones Bar opened in Washington D.C. Game of Thrones fans can raise their glass with other fans at the new 3,000-square-foot “Pop-Up Bar” (PUB), all inspired by the HBO series based on the novels of George R.R. Martin’s.
Game of Thrones Bar
“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,” says Drink Company CEO Angie Fetherston . “We didn’t have a choice; the three-eyed raven picked us. This PUB is our love letter to the Seven Kingdoms and we cannot wait to share it with fellow fans.”
The Game of Thrones Bar replicates settings from across the realms. Nearly every component is designed and built by Drink Company. In The House of Black and White, the Hall of Faces is replicated with plaster molds of Drink Company employees, family and friends. Daenarys’ Dragons are brought to life by Andrew Herndon and local muralist Andrew Funk. The Red Keep features the Armory, where guests can pledge allegiance to their house banners, and take a picture as the flayed man on a custom piece built.
“We began by thinking about what these fictional characters from Game of Thrones would drink, what cocktails would epitomize them and what moments should be represented,” says Bar Manager Paul Taylor. “We want our guests to connect the cocktails to elements of the show through name, ingredients, garnish, and glassware.” Several drinks that are served are:
- The lannisters send their regards: Vodka, Fino Sherry, Contratto Bitter, Strawberry, Lemon, Sparkling Water
- What is dead may never die: Green Hat Gin, Fino Sherry, Shrub District Celery Shrub, cane sugar, celery Bitters, sparkling water
- Milk of the poppy: Armagnac, Dark Rum, Don Ciccio & Ciccio Concerto, coconut, pineapple, lime, clarified milk
- Lady Mormont: Gin, Madeira, honey, passionfruit, lemon, Falernum, orgeat
Bars with a theme
This is not the first time we spotted a bar inspired by series or themes. Have a look for instance at the ABQ bar in London, this bar is inspired by the Breaking Bad series. The Bletchley is a cocktail bar concept inspired by the works of Alan Turing (mathematician) and the fictional spy Sherlock Holmes. Cocktail bar Dr. in Rotterdam is also located in a mysterious location and revealed to visitors once they have booked tickets. Instead of being a detective, you’re a patient in a doctors’ office (the bar).
