Philadelphia’s Halloween Pop-up Bar Nightmare Before Tinsel officially open this Friday (Sept. 17)!

Among the ghosts that still haunt the space – including the ghosts of Tinsel’s past – look for eerie ambiance, scary photo opps, witches bru cocktails, seasonal fall beers, costumed bartenders, and tons of frights and flights.

New for 2021, the season theme will be The Devil’s Lair with a trip down below with a flaming hot and bloody cave dripping with human remains, a stand-off with the Grim Reaper, and customer artwork by local artist Scott Johnston.

Doors open this Friday at 4:00pm.

Nightmare will remain open through October 31, 20121 with hours set for Monday through Friday, 4:00pm to 2:00am, and Saturday and Sunday, 2:00pm to 2:00am.
