Frankenstein’s at E.P. & L.P. might look like an ordinary bar from the outside, but step through the doors and you’ll find a laboratory of concoctions and curiosities — and your drink is the next experiment. Inside Frankenstein’s lab, you’ll find yourself surrounded by mysterious potions, shimmering elixirs, and spine-tingling concoctions. You may not be an expert, but don’t worry — the Mad Scientists will guide you through the experience. Together, you’ll unlock the secrets hidden within the simmering beakers and test tubes. You’ll test the limits of mixology, and when used correctly, you may just discover the antidote. There can only be one Frankenstein — will it be you? The experience includes an interactive cocktail/mocktail for $25, spooky photo ops and additional drinks and food for purchase. Curious about your fate? For an additional cost on-site, a mad scientist is available for a private tarot card reading.
When: Now through Oct. 31.
Where: E.P. & L.P., 603 N La Cienega Blvd., West Hollywood
