Netflix’s Cease-And-Desist Letter To ‘Stranger Things’ Bar Is The Best Thing We’ve Read All Week

The new season of Stranger Things is a little more than a month away and we’re stoked. Netflix’s hit series has gained an overwhelming amount of traction since it premiered in 2016. Now with the much-anticipated second season debuting a few days before Halloween, an unauthorized Stranger Things pop-up bar is in for a bit of a scare.

According to DNAinfo, a Chicago Bar was transformed a while back into the Upside Down – the spooky, scary parallel dimension from the show. The pop-up opened on Aug. 18 and is set to run through Oct. 1.

Unfortunately, any plans for them to go beyond the six-week period were squashed by Netflix. The two gentlemen behind the popular pop-up received this letter from the entertainment company’s legal team.

Arguably one of the funniest cease-and-desist letters we’ve seen in our years. It’s nice to see that Netflix has a bit of humor regarding the pop-up. If you happen to be in the Chicago area and haven’t had a chance to visit the Upside Down, be sure to do so before Oct. 1.
