Nashville’s pop-up scene just got a lot more festive with the addition of new themed bars and hidden speakeasies. 

Whether you’re waiting for the next season of “Stranger Things” to drop or can recite every word of “Beetlejuice,” we’ve compiled 4 local pop-up experiences to check out this season.

Falling for Fairlane, Fairlane Hotel

The Fairlane Hotel’s new autumn pop-up Falling for Fairlane will give you all the fall feels with pumpkins, hay bales, and photo-ops on the rooftop. Grab your pumpkin spice-infused cocktail + stay inside for a cozy vibe or hang out on the patio overlooking downtown.

Hawkins Arcade, Headquarters Beercade

Head to the Upside-Down (aka Headquarters Beercade) to experience Hawkins Arcade, the bar’s annual “Stranger Things”-themed pop-up. Sip on cocktails like the De-Marg-Orgon + take Instagram-worthy shots in front of the Alphabet Wall, Hawkins Woods, and Starcourt Mall.

The Mansion, L27 at The Westin Nashville

The Versace Mansion is coming to Music City with the opening of The Mansion on Fri., Oct. 22. The hotel’s rooftop will be transformed with ‘90s Versace-inspired black and gold designs, Greek statues and lots of greenery. Plus, calling all Little Monsters: Lady Gaga’s producer DJWS will be providing music at the bar’s Halloween party on Sat., Oct. 30.

Beetlejuice, Kung Fu Saloon

Knock 3 times to enter this “Beetlejuice”-inspired speakeasy hidden inside Kung Fu Saloon. The pop-up bar — complete with movie props, themed cocktails, and an inflatable sandworm — opened earlier this year + it’s sticking around for spooky season.
