A Taylor Swift-themed break-up bar is opening in Chicago, Illinois to mark this year’s “(Anti) Valentine’s Season”.
Between February 3 and 26, unlucky-in-love Swift fans will be able to visit pop-up establishment ‘Bad Blood’, where they can ease their heartache with “cocktails, song and memory-making”.
The event is hosted by Bucket Listers at the Electric Garden, located on S Racine Avenue. General admission costs $22 (£17.82) per person (including a themed welcome cocktail). Multiple 90-minute slots are available each day.
“Whether you want to sing about your lover, the ones who were never yours, the ones you’ll never get back together with, or the ones who still have your scarf, this is the perfect place for you,” reads a description.
“Be jeweled for photo opportunities and ready to engage in some champagne trouble.”
Visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of Swift-inspired drinks, tarot card readings, a “Shake It Off Wheel Of Cocktails” and more.
The ‘Bad Blood’ bar is open to over 21s and is available for private parties. The organizers have confirmed that Swift will not be in attendance. You can sign up for the waiting list and find more information here.

Taylor Swift released her 10th studio album ‘Midnights’ last October. In a four-star review, NME wrote “[The record] could possibly see Swift at her most candid, taking us through the kind of revelations that only emerge — or can be vocalized — in the wee hours.
“After a foray into another sound world, she still shines at Swift’s return to pure pop.”
In other news, Taylor Swift recently performed at one of The 1975’s shows in London. She gave ‘Midnights’ single ‘Anti-Hero’ her live debut, before covering the Manchester band’s ‘The City’.
