15 of the Nerdiest Restaurants and Bars on the Planet

Eat, drink, and be merry like a hobbit, a detective, and more.

What if you could step into a room filled with objects and images all related to your greatest obsession? What if you could then have a seat and drink a beer?

This is no fantasy. In fact, fans of fantasy novels, science fiction, animation, and the supernatural have many real-life places to gather together and feast. Want to eat like a hobbit? Two restaurants, one in Argentina and another in Texas, exist in homage to J.R.R. Tolkien’s famed fantasy books, specifically, the hobbit life.

If another franchise has your fancy, a bar in Osaka, Japan, offers Star Wars–themed food and drink amongst a hilarious array of knock-off merchandise. You can drink a pint where C.S. Lewis once hung out, or recreate the ending of The Sopranos in the same New Jersey diner where it was filmed. Whether you’re a TV buff or a bookworm, there’s probably a restaurant out there that will satisfy your every nerdy craving.
