The Night is Dark and Full of Liquor at New GAME OF THRONES Pop-Up Bar

We would never encourage anyone to drink like a Lannister, but winter is coming, and there’s nothing quite like hunkering down at your favorite bar or pub on a cold winter’s night, since we all know “everything’s better with some wine in the belly.” So when the Long Night descends what could be better than popping into this new Game of Thrones-inspired bar.

We first learned about this Edinburgh, Scotland establishment, perfectly named Blood and Wine, over at Buzzfeed, and it could just as easily be found in Westeros. It is the latest creation from The Pop Up Geeks, who say they their “Maesters have sifted through scrolls, trawled through parchments and painstakingly sampled the many wines, ales, spirits and infusions found within the pages of George R.R Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire series to source only the finest that the Seven Kingdoms have to offer.”

While not officially affiliated with HBO, Game of Thrones, or George R.R. Martin, their large drink menu is inspired by actual beverages enjoyed by (or used to poison) characters in A Song of Ice and Fire, including a flight of wines ranging from Arbor Gold to a Dornish sour red. They also serve food, including “Frey Pies” (we assume/hope they aren’t completely authentic), and of course Sansa’s favorite, lemon cakes.

The bar, located in the cellar of Daylight Robbery, is adorned with Game of Thrones props and decorations, though we suggest you not handle Longclaw after you’ve been drinking all night, otherwise you could end up with a gold hand like Jaime. However, it’s open only on Wednesday and Thursday nights through the end of February, so jump on your dragon’s back and head over there before it disappears like a White Walker stabbed by some dragonglass.

And obviously while there, answer any and all questions one way: “That’s what I do; I drink and I know things.”

What drink from Game of Thrones would you most like to try? The night is dark and full of liquor, so tell us which one you’d like to enjoy in our comments section below.
