Between now and October 31st, Pittsburghers will be given a rare gift: a pop-up haunted dining and drinking experience called the Cannibal Clown Cafe. Located in the former Double Wide Grill (2339 E Carson St.) in the Southside, experience goers will enjoy a frightfully good time at this Halloween-infused experience.

Guests can expect to be fully immersed in a haunted carnival while enjoying their meal. Each room offers a chance for a gruesome photo-op experience. Those brave enough to partake in the horror are encouraged to dress in their best costume to add to the ex-scary-ence.

The full menu features BBQ and carnival classics, vegetarian options, seasonal cocktails, and seasonal drafts. Some menu items include brisket, smoked ribs, pulled pork, mac and cheese, signature sandwiches, corn dogs, and funnel cake. The full bar features spooky cocktails crafted by Sean Enright, former Spork GM and mixologist.

The pop-up is open daily for both lunch and dinner. Guests can dine-in, take a seat at the bar, or order take-out. Both the kitchen and bar are open Sunday – Thursday 11:30am – 9pm and Friday – Saturday kitchen 11:30am-10pm.

So go, if you dare, and immerse yourself in the nightmarish whimsy of Cannibal Clown Cafe, where the eerie ambiance will make for a meal that’s hard to forget. For more information, visit Cannibal Clown Cafe’s website or follow their Instagram!
