Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister aren’t the only ones vying for the Iron Throne. Around 47,000 people sat on the melded-sword seat at DC’s Game of Thrones pop-up bar, which came to an end with the season finale on Sunday.
Drink Company commissioned the custom furniture from an artist in Atlanta, who built it out of foam, plastic, and paint. In order to actually fit it into the building, the throne was split into two pieces—together weighing a few hundred pounds—and connected on-site. The total cost (with shipping): $10,235.
Now, the bar owners have a problem: What should they do with their throne? While dragons and armies will decide what happens to the one in Westeros, the fate of DC’s Iron Throne will be democratically decided. The bar owners want Washingtonian readers to vote on what they’d like to see happen to it, then they’ll pick a winner from the top three choices. The poll will be open through Labor Day weekend, and Drink Company will announce their plans shortly after that.
