This Halloween night you can journey to a galaxy far, far away to a hive of scum and villainy known as Bierock, a bar in Madison that has a lot to offer.

The owners of Bierock have recreated the cantina from “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” and have spared no expense. The bar will even have Star Wars-themed drinks from the movies.

“All you have to do is take a look at the movie and aesthetic of the Cantina to see that it has a lot of tubes and pipes hanging from the ceiling,” said owner Brian Carriveau. “We’ll try to recreate that. We’re doing a twist on the blue milk Luke Skywalker drinks in the movie into our own specialty cocktail. And there will also be a few special Easter eggs our customers will notice, but they’ll have to see them for themselves.”

Last year, Bierock turned their space into Mo’s bar from “The Simpsons” and was dedicated to recreating the experience for the fan base. This year, with the last Star Wars movie about to be released they are really going after fans of all generations.

“We want customers to feel as if they’re coming to Mos Eisley when they step into Bierock,” Carriveau said. “The staff will be dressed up, but a little bit of the burden also falls on the customers. The more that come in costume – be it Jedi, Sith or other alien forms – the more it will feel like a galaxy far, far away.”
