Netflix Had to Ask a ‘Stranger Things’ Bar to Shut Down

Netflix recently had to ask a Stranger Things themed pop-up bar to stop cramping their style. The streaming network sent over a formal letter to the bar which is located in Chicago’s Logan Square.


The note was kept entertaining and in theme, politely requesting the bar owners ask for permission next time.

“Danny and Doug,

“My walkie talkie is busted so I had to write this note instead. I heard you launched a Stranger Things pop-up bar at your Logan Square location. 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.

“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. Let me know as soon as possible that you agree to these requests.

“We love our fans more than anything, but you should know the Demogorgon is not always as forgiving. So please don’t make us call your mom.”

never a dull moment in The Upside Down… shouts to the PPL MVR yetis for partying with us tonight!!! 🙌🏼
