The 702 is full of mystery and this hidden Vegas Nightmare Before Christmas pop-up bar is gaining notoriety. Tucked away in cozy Chinatown is a fast-casual Mexican restaurant named Mas Por Favor.
To the tourist eye it looks like a normal Hispanic restaurant that serves great tasting plates but behind the scenes is another story.
The bright pink and white neon letters lure customers in to what looks to be a pirates favorite hang out. The open floor concept features metal chairs, wooden tables, huge décor barrels and five order menus. From first glance, the rustic colored walls with shrubs and the giant painted skull wall art makes the room feel edgy yet modern. Their neon pink “Mas Por Favor” sign makes the perfect boomerang of any Instagram story.
A large white door sits left upon entering the restaurant, leaves guests to believe it’s an entrance for the kitchen quarters but it’s a passage way to an entirely new world. Down a rocky dark hallway, what looks similar to a miner’s workspace, is the road to Halloween Town—Vegas edition.
Jack Skellington, Oogie Boogie and the whole Nightmare Before Christmas crew have encroached the Mexican hotspot. Twinkling orange lights, black and white-stripped umbrellas and a familiar long snouted snake lingers through the air. Oogie Boogie himself sits against the back wall watching eager guests feast on themed bites. The restaurant’s permanent skull and red flower arch ways fit perfectly within the dark fantasy décor. The small details really bring the fantasy to life.
The iconic sharp fanged holiday wreath sits perched guarding the bar for all who dare to order. Certain festive drinks come in ceramic-character cups are ready-to-order!
The menu features Pumpkin King Cheesecake Brulee, Oogie Boogie Dirt Pie, Frogs Breath Rosole and more! Note: they do sell out of their food options so some options may not be available on your visit.
The pop-up bar does take walk ins but they prefer that you make an appointment. The wait times may vary and there is no guarantee that you will get in.
