Come on Barbie, let’s go party at The Whippersnapper! Once again set to captivate Dallas enthusiasts - The Whippersnapper is bringing the iconic doll to life. With its signature Whippersnapper flair, guests will be immersed in a fantastic BAR-bie experience, coinciding with the launch of the latest big-screen adaptation. The bar will undergo a marvelous transformation into a real-life rendition of the iconic DreamHouse, inviting all ‘Barbs’ and Kens to indulge in the ultimate "Bar-bie" extravaganza. 

Starting from Thursday, August 10 at 10pm to Saturday, September 30, Dallasites will have the opportunity to experience the immersive pop-up featuring themed food and drinks, live music, and decor that celebrate the iconic doll's legacy. To create an authentic atmosphere, even the staff members will be participating in the fun by donning themed looks from different eras of Barbie's history. Located on Henderson Ave. at 1806 McMillan Ave, Dallas, TX 75206, The Whippersnapper will temporarily close its doors on Sunday, August 6, and remain closed until the pop-up opens on Thursday, August 10 to prepare for the Barbie makeover. 

“The BAR-bie pop-up will transport patrons to their own dream world. Everyone has their own take on the doll, and we can’t wait to see all the different ‘Barbs’ and Ken that walk through our doors.” says Phil Schanbaum, co-founder of This and That Hospitality. “With everyone talking about the movie, we whipped up our spin on the beloved theme.” 

The outside of the venue will be designed to resemble a life-sized Dream House, capturing the essence of the iconic doll's home. Inside, guests can expect to find an array of decorations and on-theme Corvette bed, a digital photobooth, an accessory wall and more. 

In addition to the captivating decor, The Whippersnapper's bar has dreamed up a pop-up exclusive menu of food and drinks with items such as Barbie’s Burger, Teresa’s Tenders and the California

Club, as well as custom cocktails such “Life in Plastic” and “He’s just Ken” and more. The pop-up will be ages 21+ and free to the public.
