New York, April 27 (IANS) A bar and restaurant inspired by filmmaker Tim Burton is set to open in New York City’s East Village this week.
The restaurant named Beetle House is based on Burton’s 1988 movie “Beetlejuice”, which starred actor Michael Keaton in the title role, as well as several of his other motion pictures, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The eatery will feature food and drinks based on Burton’s films, including “Edward Scissorhands” and “Mars Attacks!”.
Among the cocktails on offer at Beetle House are the Headless Horseman, so called after his 1999 horror motion picture “Sleepy Hollow”, and the Jack Skellington, a character in 1993 film “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, which was produced by Burton.
Customers who are keen to indulge in a meaty treat might like to order the Edward Burger Hands or the Sweeney Beef that get their name from actor Johnny Depp’s onscreen character Sweeney Todd.
It’s not the first time Beetle House’s owners have created a celebrity-inspired venue, having previously opened the Stay Classy New York bar, which is dedicated to actor Will Ferrell.
