I think there is so much more could have been done to make the effects better. server or bartender dressed as princess leia. the moving playing have the sound in the back round. maybe some ship models hanging or flying across the ceiling. over all we had a wonderful time. thank you

Overall we had a fantastic time! The only thing I’d suggest is adding a curtain or something over the back door. Every time someone left, the bright light from outside really threw off the vibe and was even a little blinding to adjusted eyes haha

We had a great time. The Stranger Things theme was so fun. The drinks were delicious and the food was super yummy. Can’t wait to go back when it’s a different theme. I would love to see a horror movie theme, Beetlejuice Vs Edward Scissorhand, or Alice in Wonderland Vs Wizard of Oz. I think those themes would be awesome. Thanks again for the memorial experience.

It was a great and memorable experience for our family. The staff were very well dressed for the theme and provided amazing opportunities for us to get some great pictures of the props that were located in the bar. The only complaint is that the place was pretty crowded due to it being such a small bar. Other than the small area, the overall experience was top notch!!!

We really enjoyed our time! Only 2 things that we would suggest change in is opening the back patio door to bring other guests through right by our table blinded us with sunlight and kind of killed the atmosphere. Not sure if anything can be done about that. Also, we respect the time limit on tables in allusion. However, we have been multiple times and most of the time we go over our time because we are waiting for our server to get us our checks. So we feel bad but there isn’t much we can do about that. Thanks!

A nice experience with good service. Colorado Springs needs more businesses like this. We didn't have any food. It's was a little pricey for the 1 hour we were there.

It would be great if the playlist was all music from Stranger Things. The decor was great, and I would have rated the ambiance higher if the music had been right. Also, it'd be nice if there were some appetizers on the menu that were part of the theme instead of having the food entirely separate and unrelated.

Theme wasn’t as good. The rolling for shots was cool but the shots felt lackluster compared to previous themes. Fire shots being the special are a little repetitive. Service was great though

This is my first time going to the Powers location and I just felt the ambience wasn’t as good as the downtown one. At the downtown location they did tricks at your table with the drinks. At this location they tried to do a smoke bubble and couldn’t get it to work and when you’re paying $14.00 a drink, I think that should include some cool experiences. Nothing wowed me enough to come back again during this theme. I might try the downtown location and see if it’s the same or better ambience wise.
