Great Odin’s raven! There’s now a Will Ferrell-themed cocktail bar on New York’s Lower East Side.

At Stay Classy New York, not only can you enjoy a Scotch-y Scotch Scotch, but you can also sample artisanal cocktails inspired by the comedian’s wry (no, not rye) humor and famous lines from Saturday Night Live, Anchorman, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Old School and more.

Stay Classy co-owners Zach Neil and Brian Link opened the bar, which has been “in preview” since Oct. 3 ahead of its official opening on Oct. 25, as a tribute to their favorite funnyman.

“We love the man and his work — so it was easy for us to create this landscape of ridiculous things and theme it accordingly,” Neil told People. (Neil told WPIX that he watched Ferrell’s Anchorman “five times a week for three years,” so you know he’s serious about his Ferrell fandom.)

The bar will feature a Ferrell-themed art gallery with works by local artists and those from further afield. Also on offer are  drinks with names like Glass Case of Emotion (muddled rosemary and peach, whiskey, lemon juice and
simple syrup for $12), Milk Was a Bad Choice (Stoli Vanil, vanilla schnapps, milk and ice for $10), You’re My Boy Blue (Hendrick's Gin, blue curacao, sweet and sour, and pineapple juice for $12) and other, less family-friendly, monikers.

The bar will host movie nights and themed parties, and it has already attracted a steady stream of the Ferrell faithful from all walks of life (though not yet Ferrell himself — but there may come a day).

“This bar is kind of like the place where a 35- or 40-year-old person could come and sit and not be intimidated by loud techno music but still be surrounded by things that are funny and ridiculous and kinda get it,” Neil told WPIX. “That’s what Will Ferrell has always meant to us.”

And perhaps to many others.
