WASHINGTON (CIRCA) - October is the month of all things spooky ... and boozy?
A new pop-up bar in Washington, D.C., based on true crime is opening just in time for Halloween. The Death Becomes Us bar is the latest creation from Drink Company.
Three of the most famous and gory cases in history serve as the inspiration for the new location.
Visitors enter into a bar based on the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690s that resulted in 20 deaths for alleged witchcraft in Massachusetts. Broomsticks hang from the ceilings and pillories can be seen from the front window.
Guests can step into history and learn about the Black Dahlia, one of the most famous cold cases from 1947 in the second room, reading clippings about her murder on the walls and sipping on a cocktail named after her.
In the back of the bar, the bloodiest room gives guests the chance to experience Elizabeth Bathory's boudoir. This 16th-century serial killer allegedly bathed in the blood of her victims, thus the bar features a bloody bathtub right in the middle.
The Drink Company also explored its themes through cocktails like the Black Dahlia and the Covered in Honey.
The Death Becomes Us bar will be open weekends through Nov. 4.
