This Chicago Bar is Dressing Up as Moe's Tavern for Halloween

by Alexander Frane on Oct 24, 2017 in Culture

 
Bar and arcade Replay, in the Lincoln Park area of Chicago, is getting into the Halloween spirit by dressing up as Moe’s Tavern, the iconic dive bar from The Simpsons, The Chicagoist reports. It’s going all in: the windows are painted over with the signature green and red diamonds of Moe’s, Moe himself peers through the window of the front door, and a painted image of Barney Gumble on the floor makes it look like the ubiquitous drunk has passed out, as usual. The bar is even going so far as to play segments of the cartoon’s resident reporter Kent Brockman on vintage TVs.

For drinks there’s a full list of Simpsons references, from the classic Duff beers to coffee cocktails served with a side of donuts (mmm...donuts). You can even order Yoko Ono’s favorite drink, a single plum floating in perfume served in a man's hat, though that will cost you $50 and requires 24 hours notice.

The transformation is going through to Halloween, after which the bar will turn back into its old self, so if you’re in the area, get in while you can.
