There's a Star Wars-inspired cantina coming to Hollywood

If you've always wanted to argue the "Han shot first" controversy over a couple of cosmic cocktails, then we have some good news for you—search your feelings, you know it must be true. 

The Scum & Villainy Cantina, a temporary pop-up inspired by Star Wars' infamous Mos Eisley cantina, is scheduled to land in Hollywood this winter.

The pop-up will accept reservations each night (6-8pm, 8:30-10:30pm and, on Saturdays only, an additional 3-5pm time slot) that include two drinks, a souvenir pint glass and a Scum and Villainy challenge coin. If you're not able to secure a seat, walk-ins will be welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis between 11pm and 2am. If you manage to score a reservation, hold onto that challenge coin and you'll get gratis admission to the galactic pop-up during walk-in hours. Costumes are encouraged, though maybe consider checking your blaster at the door.

There's not much else we know about the pop-up right now, though Nerdist reports that reservations should open next week. We'll update you when we hear more, but for now the most specific location we can give is "less than 12 parsecs away in the wretched hive of Hollywood."

Though Scum & Villainy is careful not to mention Star Wars anywhere on its webpage, we wouldn't be surprised if Disney keeps a close legal eye on the pop-up thanks to its own plans for a Star Wars land at Disneyland—including a cantina.
