Do you think you have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse? Are you craving a good beer or a craft cocktail? If you are in and around Edinburgh, Scotland next month be sure to check out a very special pub located in the heart of the city.

“Survive”, The Walking Dead themed bar, is set to open it’s doors in May and is headed up by The Pop-Up Geeks. They describe the bar’s theme from a patron standpoint: you are a Survivor and “the world as we know it is gone. Nowadays, every time you step outside you risk your life. After weeks of scavenging we’ve stockpiled a variety of beers, spirits, cocktails and rations for survivors to enjoy.” 

The Pop-Up Geeks started out with a Game of Thrones themed pop-up bar called ‘Blood and Wine’ last year. The venture was so successful they decided to open more. They have plans for other pubs based on Harry Potter, Stranger Things and Game of Thrones scheduled to open later in 2017.  They say their “aim is to bring together drinks and entertainment to create unique and exciting experiences.”  Sounds like so much fun!

These pop-up bars are open only a limited time. “Survive” is set to open May 3rd and will run through the end of June 2017. Be sure to let Fan Fest know if you visit; we hope you are a survivor and don’t get turned into a walker!
