LOGAN SQUARE — Calling all fans of the Netflix show "Stranger Things."

A pop-up bar inspired by the beloved 1980s-set sci-fi Netflix show is opening at 7 p.m. Friday in the event space next to Emporium Logan Square, 2367 N. Milwaukee Ave. The bar will be open through Sept. 23.

"The Upside Down," named after the spooky alternate reality in the show, will have a Joyce Byers' living room meets the Mirkwood Forest meets Hawkins Middle School A.V. Club vibe — complete with a replica of the lit-up alphabet wall.

(In the show, the missing boy tries to communicate with his mom, played by Winona Ryder, using blinking Christmas lights.)

Check out the teaser below:

The bar will serve six craft cocktails, including two slushies, inspired by the characters and motifs in the show plus Chief Hopper's beer of choice, Schlitz. 

DJ sets using music from the late 1970s and early '80s, which has become synonymous with the show, will set the mood.
