Netflix Says No To 'The Upside Down' Bar

(SOUNDBITE OF KYLE DIXON AND MICHAEL STEIN'S "STRANGER THINGS")

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene.

GREENE: In Chicago, a bar popped up called The Upside Down. Yeah, it's a reference to the spooky parallel universe in the Netflix series "Stranger Things." They had the famous alphabet wall from the show and a cocktail named after a character's meal of choice, Eleven's Eggos. But then came a letter from a Netflix lawyer saying, unless I'm living in The Upside Down, I don't think we had a deal with you for this pop-up. And so yeah, for this '80s-themed bar, it's closing time. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
