As Tyrion Lannister likes to say, “Everything’s better with some wine in the belly.” That also happens to be the motto of Blood & Wine, the new Game of Thronesinspired pop-up bar in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The bar features various drinks mentioned in George R.R. Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire book series, including Dornish Wine, Tyroshi Pear Brandy and Old Bear’s Hot Spiced Wine. You can even try some Icelandic Mountain Vodka, brought to you by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, the actor who played The Mountain.

And of course there’s food, including, if you’re up for it, an entire pig leg.

Or if you’re feeling less hungry but more daring, why not try a Frey Meat Pie? It surely isn’t made with the same ingredients as on the show… right?

The bar is the brainchild of The Pop Up Geeks, a U.K. group that creates new themed bars every month, which means if you want to sample their wares, you’ll have to do it soon. The bar is only open Wednesday and Thursdays through the end of February.

Valar Morghulis my friends.
