A Stranger Things concept bar opened August 18 in Chicago’s Logan Square. “The Upside Down” is filled with references to the show and has themed cocktails like “Eleven’s Eggo’s.”
It seemed like everything was going well for the bar until Netflix sent the parent company, Emporium Popups, a cease-and-desist letter. Normally cease-and-desist letters include some sort of scary legal action if terms aren’t met. This letter was a little different.
