Never been to a “pizza speakeasy?” Well, you’re not alone.
At first glance, Ziggy’s Magic Pizza Shop, located in Phoenix, looks like a normal restaurant. However, if you enter the slice shop, travel past the kitchen and open what looks like a freezer door, it becomes clear that’s not the case.
The restaurant is, in fact, home to a hidden bar and dance club. It’s a reveal that’s drawn the attention of more than 270,000 TikTok users.
The restaurant, which opened in 2019, isn’t exactly hiding its “secret” backroom (the bar even has its own Instagram page). However, it’s clear that TikTok users from outside the Phoenix area had no idea something like this existed.
“Hold on, what?” one user reacted.
“How’d it go from that to that? I’m in,” another wrote.
“Do you have to have a secret password lol,” another joked.
The “pizza speakeasy” is actually called the Stardust Pinbar Phoenix, a David Bowie-themed reference to its front-facing restaurant. The bar features pinball, drinks, dancing and, of course, still plenty of pizza.
The bar is currently open, according to its social media pages; however, the TikTok showed that plenty of COVID-19 protocols have been put in place to keep guests safe.
From the looks of it, the bar has embraced Halloween season too.
