It’s been 12 years since the ultra-quotable Anchorman was released, and we still can’t enough of Will Ferrell’s Ron Burgundy. The world simply can’t live without him. So in an attempt to keep Ron Burgundy and his news team very much alive and well, there’s an Anchorman-inspired bar opening in L.A. Obviously, it’s called The Stay Classy Bar.
On December 5th, The Stay Classy Bar will open in the TCL Chinese 6 Theater in Hollywood, and it will be very similar to the Stay Classy New York, the Will Ferrell-themed bar on the Lower East Side that pays homage to all of Ferrell’s most famous funny guys over the years. (You can even get a cocktail called You’re My Boy Blue.)
It will be open for 10 days as a trial of sorts, from which they’ll decide if it should become a permanent establishment.
Eater Los Angeles says part of the proceeds will be donated to Cancer for College, Ferrell’s non-profit that raises funds for students who have had cancer to complete higher education. That might be a good enough reason in and of itself to go check out the Anchorman bar if you’re in the area. Remember, you can RSVP by just texting the number provided in the ad!
Um, we don’t mean to be a wet blanket, but wouldn’t it have been much more appropriate to open The Stay Classy Bar in San Diego? Either way, we’re pumped.
