NYC Now Has a Will Ferrell-Themed Bar And Everybody Panic

The Will Ferrell-themed bar in New York City is so hot right now.

That’s right, the same place that houses so many iconic landmarks just got culturally richer, boasting a watering hole dedicated to American treasure Will Ferrell.

WPIX (h/t Gothamist) spoke with one of the proprietors of Stay Classy New York, which seems to be wall-to-wall with nods to the comedian’s work.

As the report states, the establishment is thanks to Zach Neil and a co-partner’s undying love for the man who featured in “Saturday Night Live,” “Anchorman,” and countless other works that led to just as many legendary one-liners.

The result is a bar that opened October 1 and sits as 174 Rivington St. on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Until you stop by for a drink, you can take a peek thanks to social media:

Neil explained to WPIX as to the impetus behind the location: “This bar is kind of like the place where a 35-or 40-year-old person could come and sit and not be intimidated by loud techno music but still be surrounded by things that are funny and ridiculous and kinda get it. That’s what Will Ferrell has always meant to us.”

The report states that those in the area will also get to enjoy an “Anchorman”-themed Halloween party that will include “prizes for the best costumes.”

But let’s say you already have plans. Well, you can still look forward to when you do stop by for a drink by taking a look at the official website.

The menu is a cavalcade of unforgettable Ferrell moments. For example, you can sip on cocktails like Did We Just Become Best Friends? and We’re Going Streaking!

Neil did tell WPIX that he has no intention of reaching out to Ferrell, because a chance encounter would be far more noteworthy: “I’d rather it be like a Tuesday night and its dead in here and he just walks through the door. That would be better than me reaching out and trying to be like — hey come to the bar we love you man.”

That’s the kind of insane scenario that would have anyone sit back and proclaim, “Well, that escalated quickly.”
