Netflix just proved that legalities don't have to be dreary, always. The streaming giant issues an awesome cease and desist letter to a Stranger Things-themed bar in Chicago in true geek style.

The bar, which is named after the sinister parallel universe in the one-season-old series — The Upside Down — was asked to close its shutters.

The full letter, which makes for a great read for people guilty of binge watching the sci-fi horror series, can be read at The Scroll. The letter makes some cheeky allusions to The Upside Down, the evil creator of the parallel universe, Dr Brenner and the Monster, who is nicknamed Demogorgon by the four friends.

The decor of the bar has been inspired by the show, with the alphabet wall and Christmas lights in place. Not just the decor, the menu has also been customised to suit the tastes of the Stranger Things fandom, with drinks like "Eleven’s Eggos".

Although the pop-up has been enjoying busy days since its opening, it has run its course. As per a Variety report, the owners plan to shut the venture by 1 October and have no ill feelings towards the creators for sending them a legal notice.

After a successful first season run, the second installment is all set for a 27 October release on Netflix.
