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.
