A new pop-up coming to New York City is bringing the dark side of the force to SoHo. If the force is about balance, this certainly is in contrast to the city’s holiday cheer.
If you’re anything like us, there is a certain amount of “Bah humbug” to your holiday experience. The onslaught of Christmas music, lights, trees… it’s a lot. If only there was a place you could escape that relentless cheer and delve into the darker side of the force. Well, soon, there will be.
A new Soho pop-up bar dedicated to Dark Side of the force is set to make your darkest Star Fars fantasies come true. The bar, named “The DarkSide Bar” (obviously), is taking reservations now and will stick around lower Manhattan until January 15.
Don’t let the black and red interior fool you. The Dark Side Bar offers themed DJ nights, “alien speed dating” (a little more Kirk that Vader, but we’re not complaining), and an intergalactic burlesque show. There are also custom cocktails—including Red Force, Blue Force, the Imperial, the Dark Side, the Galaxy, and the Mindtrick. There is also a $14 snack platter if you work up a hunger in your sith dealings.
Reservations are set at $33 per person (and includes two cocktails per person) with walk-ins costing $40. If you just can’t wait until December 15 to get your star wars fix, when The Last Jedi opens in theatres, then “The DarkSide Bar” might be for you. Let the hate (or the cocktails) flow through you.
