This depends on the day of the week and time of night.  It's more or less unpredictable. However, we've found that the heaviest wait times in past pop-ups are between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m., with the shortest lines either before opening (queues generally begin one hour before opening) or late evening. Weekdays are typically shorter waits than weekends.

Nope.

Is PUB Dread a Haunted House/Will I be scared?

Not exactly. And maybe. There are some surprises in store, including animatronic elements and light effects, but we believe it's fairly tame. Ultimately, we don't want you to spill your drink! Please feel free to email for specific details.

Is PUB Dread actually haunted?

Yes. Ask about Cordelia. She's a doll. We're not joking. We wish we were.
