Rats and booze galore: A rat-filled pop-up bar will open in San Francisco this June

Ratatouille, eat your heart out.

The Rat Bar is set to open for one weekend in June, and organizers say the San Francisco pop-up bar will be a place where “rats run free and the booze flows like water.”

Guests who dare to venture to the Rat Bar will be served the bar’s “signature cocktail,” the “Ama-RAT-to Sour.” It’s billed as a traditional amaretto sour with a “rat’s tail” as garnish. Then, Rat Bar crawlers will have a half-hour to play with their newfound rodent buddies.

A rat rescue non-profit called the Ratical Rodent Rescue will be providing the rats. Just in case an attendee falls in love with a newfound rodent drinking buddy, the organization has rats up for adoption.

The event will take place June 13 to 15, “or until the rats drink themselves into a stupor,” according to a statement.

A punny cash bar awaits for daring bar crawlers after the experience, where alcoholic drinks (without any rat companions) will be served. Mocktails for younger rat-lovers will also be available.

The bar is hosted by the San Francisco Dungeon, a tourist attraction that hosts live-action exercises in learning about the city’s “weird, twisted, dark side.” In the past, the San Francisco Dungeon did its riff on the “cat café” trend, opening up a Rat Café pop-up in 2017.

Tickets cost about $50 a head.
