Emporium Popups – The Upside Down will officially open for bodies, errr, business on Friday, August 18th at 7pm!

This concept will (tentatively) run through the end of September!

This Stranger pop-up bar will be the end of Summer 80’s dance party of your dreams, filled with curious Things inspired by & paying homage to the instant-classic television show about the haunting happenings in Hawkins, Indiana & the brave kids of the Hawkins Middle School A.V. Club who saved their friend & their town from the devious deeds of the Hawkins National Laboratory & the subsequent devastation of the Demogorgon!

There will be show-inspired adult beverages, artwork & design installations from local artists & designers, & occassional musical performances from some very special mystery guests.
