Chicago Bar to Bring Star Wars‘ Mos Eisley Cantina to Life for One Night

You've got the cantina song stuck in your head now.


The Whistler bar in Chicago is bringing the Mos Eisley Cantina to life. For one night only, you can spend all night drinking at a bar with the most obnoxious playlist in the galaxy. That’s right: This is your one shot to show up as your favorite alien or Jedi and be taken to a galaxy far, far away. Just don’t show up as a droid. They’re… not okay with droids. I’m kidding about that last part.

Chicago isn’t exactly a wretched hive of scum and villainy, depending on who you ask. But it’s exciting to just kind of get away for a night and pretend to be stuck on a desert planet with two suns, eh? Just don’t walk around hitting people with your lightsaber or shooting up the place with your DL-44. Nobody likes that jerk.

Lookin’ at you, Solo.
