Netflix shuts down 'Stranger Things' pop-up bar in the nicest way possible

Aw, those nice Stranger Things kids — so nice! So gracious! So accommodating!

We’re not just talking about the likes of Emmy-nominated Millie Bobby Brown (who didn’t trip when she lost a supporting award to Ann Dowd of Handmaid’s Tale on Sunday night), but also the marketing and legal departments at Netflix, who were pretty cool about a Chicago pop-up bar totally copping their whole Stranger Things thing to sell some cocktails.

The unabashedly Stranger Things-themed “The Upside Down” bar opened last month in Logan Square, but apparently forgot to run that idea by Netflix, which sent a cease-and-desist letter to the temporary business, according to a local report.

But this wasn’t your typical sternly worded C&D. Netflix was chill.

According to DNAinfo in Chicago, the letter reads:

Look, I don’t want you to think I’m a total wastoid, and I love how much you guys love the show. (Just wait until you see Season 2!) But unless I’m living in the Upside Down, I don’t think we did a deal with you for this pop-up … You’re obviously creative types, so I’m sure you can appreciate that it’s important to us to have a say in how our fans encounter the worlds we build.

The letter simply requests that they not extend the pop-up beyond its scheduled end date, meaning they’re free to serve drinks like the Demogorgon and Eleven’s Eggos until then. (Netflix didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.)

The letter continues, “We’re not going to go full Dr. Brenner on you, but we ask that you please (1) not extend the pop-up beyond its 6 week run ending in September, and (2) reach out to us for permission if you plan to do something like this again.”

Hey, they asked nicely.
