Recess is transforming into a Barbie Dream House for Halloween weekend 💕

Come on, Barbie, let’s go party!!

Get ready to make all your Barbie dreams
come true with:

  • Barbie-tastic photo opportunities…definitely THINK PINK!
  • Delicious Barbie themed food and drink specials
  • A fabulous costume contest with TWO ways to win ( With over 500 dollars in prizes!) – see below!

Barbie Contest Details
Two ways to WIN:
1.) Visit the pop-up anytime between Friday, October 28th and Monday, October 31st and share an Instagram story, reel, or post tagging #RecessBarbiePopup – our team will pick our favorite to win a $100 Atomic gift card! We’ll announce the winner on Tuesday, November 1st by 5pm.
2.) Visit the pop-up on the evening of Saturday, October 29th for our LIVE costume contest. Contestants must enter in person by 9pm and be present for “finals” at 11:30pm – this will also culminate in one big Barbie dance party! Winner will receive $500 cash (with great prizes for runner-ups as well!)
In the words of Barbie herself…“You can be anything!” meaning you don’t have to dress as the “conventional” Barbie to enter each contest. We’ll accept all types of creative photos, reels, costumes, and associated expressions of that bright Barbie spirit!

No special reservations are required to explore the photo ops and decor, but if you plan to eat/drink we recommend you click below and make a reservation!
