San Franciscos Rat Bar lets drinkers hold, play and run around with clean, domesticated rats clearly the owners known their demographic
What could be more relaxing after a hard days work than sitting back with a few friends, sipping a cool cocktail and letting a bunch of rats run all over you? If thats the kind of thing youre into I would suggest that you seek out medical counsel. Or, just go to the Rat Bar.
The Rat Bar is actually a pop-up event where drinkers can hold, play and run around with rats. But these arent just any typical rodents. Theyre safe, clean, domesticated and provided by a not-for-profit organization called the Ratical Rodent Rescue. Oh, and if you happen to take a liking to any of those furry things and who knows what can happen after a few shots you even have the chance to adopt one!
I know you can barely contain your excitement. But before you start calling your friends and running to the Rat Bar, you will need to know a few very important things.
For starters, the bar is in San Francisco. Also, its just a pop-up and will only be open this week, from 13 June to 15 June. Most importantly, youre going to need to bring some cash. The entrance fee is $50 and for that you get to watch an hour-long interactive show about the Bay Areas dark and strange historical past. According to a press release, you will move through different points in time with actors recreating San Franciscos darkest moments, including the gold rush, Chinatown gangs, Miss Piggotts saloon (where youll get shanghaied), the plague and conclude in where else an Alcatraz prison cell with super creepy ghosts. Kind of makes the rats seem like a picnic!
