Downtown Orlando already has a Christmas bar, so why not a Halloween bar?

A new Halloween-themed bar called Cocktails & Screams is coming to downtown Orlando in the former 39 Pine location, at 39 W. Pine St. just across from the 55 West building.

From the folks behind Joysticks, an arcade-themed bar that's also downtown, the new speakeasy-style watering hole aims to be "fully immersed in all the feelings Halloween" says the website.

A cocktail menu is available on their site, with spooky drink names like "Night Shade" and "Bone Daddy" and specialty shots called "The Ripper" and "Children of the Corn."

No opening date has been announced, but you can follow along on their Facebook or Instagram accounts for regular updates. There's also a handy little graph on their site showing their current progress:
