Will Ferrell has returned to the city that made him famous – in the form of a bar! A couple of big fans of the Saturday Night Live alum have opened a bar in New York City’s Lower East Side that serves as an unauthorized tribute to the comedian, with everything about the establishment taking on a Ferrell theme.
The bar, both aptly and ironically named “Stay Classy New York,” is currently open in its preview phase, with a grand opening scheduled for October 25. Patrons are greeted with walls covered in all sorts of Will Ferrell artwork – from your standard Talladega Nights poster to things like an interpretive painting of Zoolander’s Mugatu. The drink menu also has a Will Ferrell twist, from slightly complicated drinks like the “Smelly Pirate Hooker” – which is basically a jalapeno margarita – to more obvious offerings like “The F*cking Catalina Wine Mixer” – which is simply sangria.
Stay Classy already has big plans to host events and theme nights. They’re planning an Anchorman-themed Halloween party and an Elf event for Christmas time. Movie nights also appear to be on the horizon. Hopefully a Will Ferrell pub quiz is not too far behind.
