Loews Boston Presents: Welcome to Hawkins Pop-Up Experience

Even though the release of the third season of Stranger Things has been delayed until summer 2019, it doesn’t mean that you have to wait to jump back into the nostalgia of the 80s. Beginning Friday, October 26th – just in time for Halloween! – Precinct Kitchen + Bar will be transformed into Hawkins, Indiana, inspired by Eleven, Dustin, Mike, Lucas and Will’s favorite places and “Things.” The bar and patio of PK+B will feature all of the awesomeness 80s fans would expect for an authentic trip to Hawkins.

Hit the Arcade

Dustin’s attempt to defeat the dragon failed, which was only the beginning of his dreams of arcade superiority crashing forever. But Mad Max hasn’t hit up Precinct’s recreation of the Palace Arcade, which means you still have a chance to shake things up as the high scorer on our classic games. Rumor has it that Ms. Pac Man and Space Invaders are ripe for dominating!

Explore the Upside Down

The Upside Down is a parallel dimension to our own human world. Remember that time in Season 1 when Eleven accidentally opened the Gate and released the demogorgon into Hawkins? The Upside Down at PK+B is a bit more fun and tasty than frightful. Enjoy the shadowy décor and savor:

  • Dustin’s Pizza
  • Strange Popcorn
  • 11’s Sliders (Deep Fried Chicken, Malted Waffle, Maple Bourbon Butter)
  • The Hopper Hangover (Turkey, Swiss Cheese, and Thousand Island Sandwich, A Schlitz Beer and Pack of “Cigs,” served in a retro lunch box)
  • Meatloaf TV Dinner

A Plate Of Food On A Table


Barb may have been a blink-and-you’ll-miss-her character in season 1 of Stranger Things, but she will be properly honored at PK+B. The “Justice for Barb” cocktail will warm you up from the demodogs’ affinity for cold temperatures with barrel-aged Laird’s Applejack and Woodford Reserve bourbon, served in a souvenir cup dedicated to Barb. Other cocktails that may whet your whistle include The Banana Seat, Cotton Candy Cosmo, and Eleven (a smoky little number, obviously with an Eggo garnish).

DO NOT keep this curiosity door locked! Opening night is Friday, October 26, at 4:00 PM. If all these cultural touchstones aren’t enough, come for the weekly dance parties. A DJ will be spinning 80s tunes every Friday and Saturday night, including Halloween. Costumes are encouraged!

The pop-up will be open nightly until November 16th.
