This St Pete Dessert Bar Will Transform Into Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory Tomorrow
Everlasting Gobstopper Shots and Chocolate Boats? Count us in!
We love booze, we love chocolate, and we most definitely love ice cream. Put them all together and it's a true boozy adult treat. Beans & Barlour have been serving up their booze-infused desserts for a year now and are celebrating by transforming into a Willy Wonka Wonderland.
Come with me, and you'll see a world of pure imagination - Beans & Barlour will be kicking off their 1-year celebration right by transforming their storefront into a chocolate factory. Even the staff will be dressed up as characters from the iconic film - dress up with them to join the fun!
Not only will the entire space be Wonka themed - but so will the one-night-only celebration menu. You'll see drinks and treats that make a nod to the movie. We even got a sneak peek at a couple of the menu items!
If you've seen the Gene Wilder movie, you probably remember the trippy ride down the chocolate river on the Wonkatania - they made the cutest chocolate replica of the boat that you can eat, and it looks just like it; atop a chocolate ice cream river and all.
One of our favorite scenes is with the Fizzy Lifting Drink - Beans & Barlour also made their own version, a cotton candy champagne that literally sparkles.
And do the Snozzberries taste like Snozzberries? Probably not this one - the Snozzberry Martini is chocolatey, in a chocolate cup, topped with edible sparkles.
The themed menu will also include other items as well, including Everlasting Gobstopper Jello Shots.
On top of the chocolate factory transformation and Wonka-inspired menu, they'll also put on live entertainment. From 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. they'll have professional stilt walkers, from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. spun tunes from Hello Darlin' Records (who also sells vinyl as well as spins from her VW Bus), and more!
Whether you're there for the booze, the sweets, or want the best of both worlds while you jam out to some tunes in a 'chocolate factory', you're in for a treat at Beans & Barlour's 1 Year Wonka Celebration. Don't forget your golden ticket (ID)!
