About Black Lagoon
Black Lagoon is the brainchild of two hospitality industry leaders, Erin Hayes and Kelsey Ramage. After throwing a massively successful trash/metal/cocktail pop-up at the infamous Dungeon in New Orleans during TOTC 2019, the two realized that this thing was fun – and had legs to be a lot bigger.
Black Lagoon is much more than just a bar pop-up. It’s an immersive experience that pays
homage to the pulpy and playful elements of the occult, bizarre, macabre and horror with a
splash of goth & metal for good measure while serving innovative and delicious spooky cocktails. This isn’t your kitschy pumpkin-lit kid-friendly Halloween haunted house. Think dark dungeon with blood chilling cocktails served by a coven of witches; it’s immersive, creepy as hell, and sure to be the adult Halloween celebration of your nightmares.
With branding that leans into goth culture & cult horror with a touch of the strange and unusual, Black Lagoon is a demented masquerade and safe space to let your freak flag fly.
