Toronto's New Horror-Themed Bar Lets You Sip Drinks In A Graveyard Of The Living Dead

Your next cocktail date just got a lot spookier at this new horror-themed bar in Toronto.

Black Lagoon is a Halloween pop-up bar serving a variety of sinister drinks in a dark and creepy setting. Opening on October 14 at the Station Social House Bar, the venue will completely immerse you in the world of horror.

Brought to life by industry icons Erin Hayes and Kelsey Ramage (of Supernova Ballroom), the pop-up isn't your typical, pumpkin-filled fall attraction. Instead, you'll find terrifying sets and decor inspired by cults of horror, goth, metal, and more.

You'll walk in through undersea vines and a creepy witch's lair. The main room is lit with flickering candles and adorned with skulls and coffins.

You can sip cocktails at the graveyard patio, and there are lots of creepy flavours to choose from, such as the Hexes for your Exes and Descent to Darkness. The drinks are served in custom glassware, which you can buy online or on-site at the "Little Shop of Horrors."

"For two years now, Erin and I have been working behind the scenes on this experience," Ramage said in a press release. "We're excited to give people a real reason to get decked out and come have fun this Halloween season."
