'Deadpool'-Themed Pop-up Bar Arriving in New York and Los Angeles
If you've ever wanted to eat or drink like Marvel's merc with a mouth, your chance is coming.
With "Deadpool 2" soon to open in theaters, 20th Century Fox is doing all it can to get people excited about the sequel. And it seems like they're having fun with it. There is a "Deadpool"-themed pop-up bar set to open in New York City and Los Angeles in the weeks to come, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The pop-up bars -- which you have to be at least 21 to visit -- will be at existing local establishments, but they'll do their best to replace the film's watering hole, Sister Margaret's School for Wayward Girls. There will be special "Deadpool" Mike's Harder cans, for example, as the company is involved in the campaign. New York's pop-up will offer pizza, while LA's will serve chimichangas, because drinking on an empty stomach is never a good idea.
Each pop-up will be open for a three-day stint, with New York's leading off. It runs from 7 to 11:30 p.m. on April 26, 27, and 28 at Brooklyn's Alligator Lounge. The LA pop-up will then follow from May 10 to May 12 at Slipper Clutch downtown, also from 7 to 11:30 p.m. each night. Proceeds from the LA location will support the nonprofit behind the DTLA Film Festival.
It sounds like a fun opportunity for fans to get in the movie spirit. If only the studio would throw in a surprise appearance from Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds, too.
"Deadpool 2" opens May 18.
