May the force to consume as many Star Wars cocktails as possible be with you. To accompany the Star Wars convention in Trafford Park this December, Cantina will open serving Star Wars themed cocktails and decor inside. After other successful pop culture themed pop-ups (think London's ABQ for Breaking Bad), the Star Wars fans have spoken and are being gifted the Cantina bar this holiday season.

From the bar you can order drinks titled Wookie Juice, Princess Punch, Jam Jam Binks, and of course, 'bantha milk'. Beyond the cocktails, the venue has themed areas from the blockbuster like Yoda's Dagobah swamp, a full size X-wing Starfighter, an Ewok village, and Jabba the Hutt's palace. Don't get too lost in the Cantina or you may never make it out to 'For The Love Of The Force' fan convention.

Managing director of the fan convention, Andy Kleek, has said he hopes the Cantina will be successful and become a permanent fixture in Manchester. 

Star Wars convention, 'For The Love Of The Force' will run from 4-6 December at Manchester's Bowler's Exhibition Center.
