Take a Look Inside the “Fantastic Beasts” Speakeasy
The name of the speakeasy in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was revealed recently to be the Blind Pig, although we haven’t learned much more about the secret, magical bar yet. We’ve glimpsed the speakeasy in the latest trailer, seeing goblin gangster Gnarlack (Ron Perlman) talking to Newt Scamander, as well as a look at the character in a character poster.
Entertainment Weekly has released a new look at some of the concept art for the speakeasy, which can be seen below.
Stuart Craig, the production designer on the films, revealed that
It’s a disreputable place with nicotine-stained tiles of an appalling character and a bit of lowlife that’s actually quite fun.
The article further describes the speakeasy, creating an evocative image!
Once you enter through an alleyway (a poster with real eyes serves as the door), you descend underground to a bar that would have never been allowed in Hogsmeade. There’[re] self-pouring drinks, a band playing instruments unlike any you’ve seen before, animated “Wanted” posters of the club’s clientele proudly displayed on the walls, and a formidable goblin owner (Ron Perlman).
