You might not have the stamina to rewatch all seven Game of Thrones seasons in preparation for the final season this April, but you can get in the mood by visiting this GoT-themed bar in Chicago.
Replay Lincoln Park, an arcade bar in downtown Chicago, has transformed into an immersive Game of Thrones pop-up experience. Patrons will be treated to backdrops and props resembling sets from the show, including Winterfell, Casterly Rock, Highgarden, and a Dothraki camp. They will also be able to take pictures in the Throne Room, in front of the Wall of Faces, or with White Walkers.
To make the experience even more interactive, the bar will even host themed events, like a “Red Wedding” dinner, jousting competition, Game of Thrones trivia each Thursday, and introduce specialty cocktails like the “Dothaquiri.” It will also collaborate with Ommegang Brewery, which makes the official Game of Thrones beers, to offer themed brews.
Entry is free, but the bar also offers a VIP experience which includes a goblet, commemorative Game of Thrones print, and express entry to the bar for $20. The Thrones pop-up will run until March 3, 2019, with tickets available on its website.
And if you can’t make it to Chicago, know that there are other ways to immerse yourself in the HBO series’ fantastical world this winter. A Game of Thrones exhibition is coming to Belfast for the show’s final season, there’s a Game of Thrones-themed ice hotel in Finland, and, best of all, you can pack your passport and check out the real-life settings.
