Fans of Tim Burton’s unique vision of Halloween (and all things macabre) can rejoice at the end of April as a new Burton-inspired bar and restaurant opens in the East Village of New York City. Dining will be by reservation only according to the eerie eatery’s website, but they do plan to offer an ‘EXCLUSIVE SELECTION OF MAIN COURSE ITEMS AND A SPECIAL SELECTION OF ITEMS FOR DELIVERY”.
The year-round Burton style Halloween ‘party’ is the brainchild of Zach Neil (creator of the New York Will Ferrell-themed bar “Stay Classy”) and Brian Link, according to an article by I-Horror.
Their latest endeavor, materializing in late April, is “a bar and restaurant in the East Village of NYC with atmosphere and menu inspired by the works of Tim Burton. It promises to be an “odd and unusual atmosphere, draped in mystery and fun, cornered by devilish drinks and heavenly food”.
The Beetle House NYC website encourages inquisitive minds to text “PREVIEW” to 646-510-4786 for preview reservations or information.
A sampling of the Burton-inspired Bar drinks include:
Muddled blackberry and limes, Tequila, Blackberry schnapps, Angostura bitters, splash of cranberry.
