A new pop-up bar is offering drinkers an unusual activity to accompany their cocktails.

The chance to play with rats.

Yes, you read that right.

Rat Bar, organized by San Francisco Dungeon, will open to customers next month following the successful run of a similar event at the California tourist attraction, Rat Cafe.

The bar advertised the upcoming event on their Facebook page.

Drinkers will be offered a half-hour slot to play with the rodents as well as supping on an inevitable rat-themed cocktail:

the Ama-RAT-o Sour.

Patrons will also be treated to an hour-long interactive show about the:

“weird, twisted, dark side of the city's history."

Matthew Clarkson, head of marketing for West Coast Midway Attractions said:
“Let's be honest – pastries and coffee were nice and all when we hosted the Rat Cafe but that was a lot of work."
“We thought, 'F it. This time, get drunk, see our show, touch rats and get drunk some more'."

Reactions online have been mixed, but most people wanted to take a pass on the rats.

Rats have been provided for the event by a local charity, Ratical Rodent Rescue.

The event will take place on June 13-15, and tickets cost $49.99.

So dad is usually begging the little ones to keep a kabash on the events that transpire in mom's absence.
