Walking Dead pop-up bar to open in Edinburgh

The new pop-up comes from the team behind the wildly successful Blood and Wine bar inspired by Game of Thrones

Grab your baseball bats and prepare to develop a deep-seated mistrust of everyone around you, for following the runaway success of their Game of Thrones-inspired pop-up bar Blood & Wine, The Pop Up Geeks' new project takes its cue from an equally bloody and critically-lauded US drama.

SURVIVE features drinks inspired by The Walking Dead comics and TV show, located in the cellar space of the excellent Belgian beer bar Six Degrees North on Howe Street. Seems like a good choice if you ask us – when the zombies do come, we'll all be looking for basements to hide in, so one that's already fitted out with delicious booze seems like a good place to start.

The menu promises Walking Dead-inflected beers, spirits and cocktails in a menu created in conjunction with Six Degrees North and Drinkmonger, as well as "a selection of boilermakers inspired by key moments in the series". Does this mean cocktails wrapped in barbed wire? Incredibly, yes it does.

SURVIVE will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 May at Six Degrees North, 24 Howe Street, Edinburgh, closing at the end of June.
