The minds behind the Stay Classy Bar have taken their popular Beetle House restaurant on the road and opened an L.A. location. Originally planning to only stay for 80 days as a pop-up, Beetle House has sold out its entire run before even opening its doors. But the website is taking names for a waiting list, and the pop-up Tim Burton–themed (but not affiliated) restaurant will likely extend its run.
However, if you must go and can't get a reservation, don't worry. The bar portion is open for all and serves crazy cocktails designed by Gia Farrell with names like the Beetlejuice, the Big Fish Bowl (for two people) and the Coco Skellington.
Inside the prix-fixe restaurant, waitresses dressed in L.A.'s own Laura Byrnes serve Cheshire Beef and Edward Burger Hands while acts from Freakshow Deluxe keep the place spooky, with a special stage show and roaming acts throughout the bar area.
Zach Neil of New Gold Empire, one of the founders (and creator of the menu) of Beetle House NYC and Beetle House LA, says that they plan theme nights — an Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) sighting might be in the future — as well as an expansion of their menu.
