More news on the secret Star Wars cantina pop-up happening in Hollywood soon enough, as it looks like tickets for the event are now on sale. Checking in on the upcoming so-called Scum & Villainy Cantina website shows that hopeful guests can now begin the process of buying their way into the bar — though firm details on the when and where remain elusive.
As before, the Mos Eisley-esque Cantina bar is said to be landing somewhere in Hollywood, though so far only rumors have been flying about the official address. The website now lists the opening as sometime in spring 2017, and ticket holders who have already purchased access recently began getting some swag in the mail (at least per this Facebook post).
A run through the ticketing system last night revealed that space was still very much available for the party, though it comes at a cost. Tickets start at $50 a pop and earn one guest apiece a two-hour window into the Cantina, along with two drinks and a souvenir glass to take home. They’ll also receive a token that’s good for entry at a future date, when there’s open seating instead of the reservations only. Spike that ticket price up to $75 and you’ll get a t-shirt and hat to boot.
Read a little deeper and you’ll see that the plan is to begin organizing those folks with tickets into specific dates and times come January, so that the place is all laid out for service when it officially arrives in the spring. Seated reservations take place only from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (plus 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays), though there will be some limited walk-in space available on a first come first served basis between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Eater reached out for more details on exact arrival times and locations, but so far hasn’t heard back.
Want in? You’ll have to sign up now and hope to angle your way into a prime time slot sometime in January at the earliest, then start blocking out your time and plotting your costume for the day the Cantina comes to life. After all, as the website says, costumers are encouraged.
