Popfancy Dessert Bar is back with another outstanding immersive experience. Following their amazing K-Pop Cafe event, the pop-up purveyors have again transformed their quarters into another immersive experience for the books – this time into Hawkins’ staple Starcourt as seen in Stranger Things.
From October 7 to October 31, visitors can step inside the iconic set of Stranger Things’ Starcourt in Houston. The Starcourt was of course a commercial center for the finest and zaniest of ’80s retail, a theater, arcade, and cultural hub for all things teenager. It was also a front for an underground Soviet base – but that’s neither here nor there.
“Join us this SPOOKY SEASON Oct 7 – 31,” Pop Fancy Dessert Bar wrote in an Instagram post. “for the Starcourt Cafe pop-up, an immersive retro sci-fi arcade & cafe event featuring a brand new themed menu, live music fri-sun, immersive interior design, unique photo-ops, free retro arcade games, cosplay, trivia games, and much more!”
While their menu has yet to be released, their pop-ups usually feature a variety of boba-based drinks, teas, smoothies, and sundaes.
The Starcourt pop-up experience takes place from October 7 to October 31, 1 – 10 pm daily, at Popfancy Dessert Bar located at 9393 Bellaire Blvd a6. Tickets start at $2 (+ fees).
To guarantee admission, the pop-up encourages guests to RSVP online through the website beforehand. The pop-up at 9393 Bellaire BLVD also has an available virtual stand-by line after 12 pm for registrations the day of the event.
