Last December, barman Derek Brown and his team transformed Mockingbird Hill into a Christmas/Hanukkah wonderland. This week through Friday, they’re turning Eat The Rich into Mos Eisley Cantina.
The Star Wars-themed decorations aren’t nearly as over-the-top as the Santa ones; There’s basically a cutout of Chewbaca and a bartender dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi. But you will find some solid Star Wars cocktails ($12) like the Sidecar D-2 or the Mai Thai Fighter—complete with a lemon peel and cherry garnish that looks like a TIE fighter. When the Mos Eisley Cantina song comes on, Han Solo Cup shots are on the house.
Come dressed as you favorite Star Wars character for 10 percent off. But if you forget your lightsaber, the staff will be handing out things like paper stormtrooper masks and Kylo Ren temporary tattoos.
