DAY of the DEADbar. A Mexican PopUp with Chef Eddie Vargas Frame & FRAMEbar > , > DAY of the DEADbar. A Mexican PopUp with Chef Eddie Vargas

Welcome to our grownup ofrenda – where we are seizing The Day (of the Dead) with a month-long celebration honoring Mexico’s culture and heritage by the bold and irreverent Chef Eddie Vargas, as we transform into DAY of the DEADbar. (Día De LaMuertosBAR)

Leaving ‘no gravestone unturned’ cue hundreds of orange marigolds, calaveras (Mexican skulls), and our very own multi-layered altar honoring the dead.

Fully staying in the spirit, plan on a show-stopping bar takeover of thematic potions by Frame’s mega-talent, Matt Grushky, Adam Accivatti, and Diego Aliste alongside a hella delicious shared plates menu of traditional celebratory Mexican recipes.

Plan on a flavourful feast of Guajillo-braised beef birria, enchiladas de mole Oaxaca, shrimp aguachile verde, ceviche veracruzano and tostada flautas, just to get started.

Spine-tingling tunes. Devilishly great food. Hauntingly good liquid treats.
Meet us at FRAMEbar for one helluva-spirited October.

After all, Halloween isn’t just about creepy ghouls and goblins.

We’re bringing this immersive pop-up from October 4th to 5 de Noviembre.

Doubling down on the excitement…mark your calendars for a special not-to-miss
Day of the Dead Mexican Brunch on Sunday, October 15th.

Walk-in table, heated patio, and bar seats available. Reservations recommended.
We think of these residencies as month-long parties, hand-selected by us, for you.

Frame and FRAMEbar.
Simply more chef experiences to mingle with.
