A 'Star Wars' Cantina Pop-Up Is Coming to L.A.

Cue the Star Wars cantina song: A pop-up is opening in Hollywood based on the one and only Mos Eisley Cantina. It’s basically every Star Wars fan’s dream come true.

For the uninitiated, or for those who need a memory jog (we won’t tell), Mos Eisley is a spaceport town on Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine. As Obi-Wan Kenobi famously says of the place: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

Fittingly, the pop-up will be called Scum & Villainy Cantina, and while the exact location is as  yet undetermined, the Facebook page indicates it will be in Hollywood. Reservations for a two hour visit can be made, or guests can walk-in between 11 p.m. to 2 a.m., LAist reports. A reservation doesn’t just secure entry, but also gets you two drinks, a “challenge coin” and a pint glass to take home.

True Star Wars fans know the infamous bar as home to some of the greatest characters in the movie, and some of the greatest, most quotable lines, too.

There’s the classic exchange between Luke and a bar-goer known as Dr. Evazan, when Luke first enters the bar:

“You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on twelve systems,” Evazan says.

“I’ll be careful,” Luke says.

“You’ll be dead.”

Another favorite is when spiky, green-faced Greedo confronts Han Solo as he’s trying to leave: “Going somewhere, Solo?”

We can tell you where we’re going: straight to the cantina pop-up as soon as we can. Droids may not be welcome, but costumes certainly are.
