A new, bewitching pop-up event created by Beetle House, the company behind the popular Halloween experience, plans to tour multiple U.S. cities this season, beginning with a premiere in Chicago. The Bats and Boos pop-up draws inspiration from the worlds of Edgar Allen Poe, Tim Burton, American horror films and Washington Irving.

The pop-up pays homage to all things Halloween, creating an immersive environment transporting guests to an entirely different world. Expertly crafted and delicious cocktails concocted by Beetle House’s master mixologists reflect the twisted narratives and stunning worlds of the most iconic Halloween films.


Debuting in Chicago this October, the pop-up will continue to other U.S. cities, which will be announced at a later date. Tickets are required to enter.
