This Beetlejuice Horror Bar is What Dreams are Made of
Horror has hit both coasts now that Beetle House, a New York-based bar and restaurant with a Beetlejuice-esque, Tim Burton-inspired vibe, has reached Los Angeles.
Opening in Hollywood next month, Beetle House LA, where “every day is Halloween”, is already taking dinner reservations. Owner, Zach Neil opened the first Beetle House in New York and calls the new West coast location another “unusual oddities parlor” with “lots of actors working with us to create an authentic experience”. Located inside the vintage Prospect Theater, the bar will have movie props, tombstones, and even an interactive version of the miniature town where Beetlejuice lives.
With no official sponsoring from Warner Bros or Tim Burton himself, the bar rather pays homage to overall Horror culture and the 1988 film which won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and three Saturn Awards: Best Horror Film, Best Makeup and Best Supporting Actress. According to the team behind it, they wanted to create the perfect potions while paying tribute “through food and drink to all things dark and lovely”.
With Danny Elfman and The Ramones supplying some of the mood music, visitors can devour an Edward Burger Hands and sip on themed-libations like the gin-infused Bio-Exorcism, the Barnabas Collins, and of course, the popular tequila creation, The Beetles Juice.
Plans are Beetle House will elaborate on additional concepts in coming months, celebrating Halloween and Horror themes even more with live music and art shows. They plan to spread the infection with non permanent pop-up locations in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville, Seattle and more. Here at Modern Horrors the only word we can think of to describe our reaction is: Cheers.
