A new year means a new themed pop-up bar at The Whippersnapper.
The bar at 1806 McMillan Ave. will undergo a “Breaking Bad” transformation starting Jan. 14. The Whip will focus on the career of Walter White, an underpaid and dispirited high school chemistry teacher turned enterprising drug lord who produces and distributes the famed Blue Sky with his former student Jesse Pinkman.
The pop up will be open from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday through Saturday until March 6.
Guests will be able to take photos with “Breaking Bad” characters and sample a themed beverage and food menu. Expect nightly entertainment, interactive experiences and themed mural work by local artists.
“The previous themes have had overwhelming success, and we think it would be nice to start 2021 off on a positive note,” This and That Hospitality co-founder Phil Schanbaum said. “This theme works well considering we always encourage our guests to dress up in costume, but this time, the mask is required as it is in all chemical cook labs.”
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission temporarily suspended the bar’s liquor license in October because it had not filed the paperwork to reclassify as a restaurant and reopen.
All Centers for Disease Control and government requirements will be met and exceeded at the pop-up, according to a Facebook post. Masks will be required, and there will be multiple sanitation stations located throughout the building. Guests will be granted entry on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 90 minutes.
Reservations will be accepted after 10 p.m. for seating areas, where there is a food and beverage requirement.
