This Fyre Festival pop-up bar might just be the greatest party that actually happens

Because the Fyre Festival jokes will never get old, a pop-up bar in Chicago is delivering its own version of the “Greatest Party That Never Happened,” but this time, without the fraud.

According to The Chicago Tribune, from May 3 to 19, the Replay Lincoln Park arcade bar in Chicago will turn into an “island paradise” including palm trees, cabanas for rent, relief tents, beach chairs, and a fyre fire pit.

The menu includes a Bahamas-style menu featuring “tiki drinks” to keep festival goers bar hoppers cheerful into the night.

And you better believe there will be “gourmet cheese sandwiches” and Evian Water to provide the true, authentic Fyre Festival experience.


The soundtrack will include the intended headliners for the actual Fyre Festival, just in the form of a bumpin’ playlist: Major Lazer and Ja Rule will be keeping guests grooving, and there will even be a live show by a Blink-182 cover band.

Details below — see you there! (Or will we…?)
