Philadelphia, PA - Teddy Sourias is ready to deck the halls for a new holiday pop-up experience -. Nightmare Before Tinsel is back and this year will transform from a themed pop-up bar into a new style of Halloween restaurant with food, drink, and haunted art that is contact-free, self-guided, ticketed, and socially distanced.
Nightmare Before Tinsel Returns to Midtown Village
Craft Concepts Group and Teddy Sourias, creators of some of Philadelphia's most instagrammable restaurants and bars, will bring the fun and frights back to Center City as Nightmare Before Tinsel grand opens this Friday, October 2, 2020, in the former home of Simpson's Jewelry. The bewitching hour is set for a 4:00 pm opening.
For the first time ever, Nightmare Before Tinsel will be transformed into a spooky asylum. Guests will enter (and socially distance) through a long, dark, and decrepit corridor that will lead to the cobweb-infested patient intake area where you will prepare for your journey and get the law of the land.
Before Tinsel will take on an asylum theme this year. Tinsel will also be a haunted restaurant with food, drink, and art installations. Guests will purchase a ticket in advance and will have a set amount of time inside.
A brand-new haunted parklette will open outside with socially-distanced dining tables. Next door, look for a brand new restaurant to pair with Nightmare to open in the coming weeks. Nightmare cocktails, beer, wine, and food will also be sold to go legally out of a take-out window - and follow all state and city guidelines.
Nightmare Halloween Pop-up Bar hours weekly will be Monday through Thursday, 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm, and Friday through Sunday, 2:00 pm to 11:00 pm. From the most wonderful time of year to the things nightmares are made of, Philadelphia's Halloween Pop-up Experience will creak open its doors this week on Friday, October 2, 2020, at 4:00 pm.
