Princess Bride-Themed Bar Opening in Chicago
A ritzy bar and "The Princess Bride" come together in a mawage that will bwing fans of the movie togever in an environment just for them. If you don't get the reference, watch this:
The movie wasn't immediately popular upon its release, but it quickly became a cult classic. It was even inducted into the National Film Registry for being "culturally significant."
As You Wish opened on February 11th as a pop-up, and the name even comes from Westley's constant response "As you wish" to Princess Buttercup.
In the bar, you walk on fake grass, surrounded by pictures detailing the start of the story.
The first few minutes of the movie are a grandfather reading a book to his grandson, so the first seven lines of the movie are seen as you enter the bar.
The menu has 16 cocktails, featuring drinks like "The Kissing Book," and "Inconceivable." The bar even has a special ice machine that prints scenes and characters from the movie.
"The Kissing Book" is a cocktail with gin, ginger, cherry and cranberry tonic. "Inconceivable" mixes aperol, green chartreuse, tequila, oyster tincture, strawberry-jalepeño cordial, and has a chocolate covered strawberry.
If you'd like to go, here's the address: As You Wish, 2202 W Lawrence Ave, Chicago, IL 60625 (773-433-5959)
