A ‘Hocus Pocus’-Inspired Cocktail Bar Is Brewing In West Town Chicago

Let your cravings run amok at the 1924 W. Chicago Avenue rooftop!

Has a Halloween movie list ever been concocted without the 1993 family classic Hocus Pocus somewhere near the top?  This October witch-wannabes and Halloween enthusiasts out there will want to schedule their movie marathons accordingly because a Hocus Pocus-themed cocktail pop is about to materialize above W.Chicago Avenues’s Roots Handmade Pizza. From Saturday 24 October Homestead on the Roof’s stunning rooftop garden in West Town will host the Hocus Pocus-themed movie pop-up that’s to be called “I Put A Spell On You”.
For two weeks only guests are invited to the cocktail bar and kitchen for a Halloween fall extravaganza based on the 1993 Halloween classic. The Sarah Jessica Parker blockbuster has a cauldron of catchy quotes and these have been used unsparingly to create the spellbinding menu.
13 specialty cocktails such as “Petunia Face” and “Amok!” have been meticulously concocted while 10 dishes offer some similarly inspired dining options. Those brave enough to order a “Dead Man’s Toes” will find themselves feasting on grilled teriyaki beef with kimchi aioli, scallions, and sesame seeds.
Dinner and cocktails are available every night from October 24 through to November while brunch sessions will start at 10 am and last until 3 pm on the next two Saturdays and Sundays. Sunday, October 25 will also be the day of a special family-friendly pumpkin-carving event with plenty of opportunities for some Instagram snaps and too many potential quotes for your catchy captions to choose from. Reservations and face coverings are two requirements so we suggest you don your mask, “form a calming circle” and head over for some terrifically tortuous snacks and shots before the pop-up vanishes into thin air on November 8.
