A Breaking Bad–themed cocktail bar is rolling into NYC this summer

It’s not a meth lab, but it’s the next best thing. This July, a Breaking Bad–themed pop-up cocktail bar will arrive in NYC. Literally rolling into town, ABQ bar is housed in an RV that will be parked somewhere in the city.

Upon entering the RV, up to 30 guests are met with hazmat suit–clad bartenders for the first drink. But you have to delve into molecular chemistry to get to your next beverages: You’ll get a manual breaking down the chemical formula, er, recipes for two DIY drinks.

First up is Saul’s C2H6O, which is not ethanol but a semi-frozen cocktail made with rum, pink peppercorn, rose hip and dry ice. You’ll use the nitrogen cavitation process to dissolve the cells of the ingredients before serving it in a beaker. It’s actually more complicated than it sounds, but it’ll be delicious.

There’s also the Blue Flynn cocktail, which changes color as you alter its acidity. There are suspended glass bowls and tubing through which you pump rum and strawberry flavors to create the tastiest pH level possible.

The RV, which has already had successful tours in London and Paris, will be parked in our city for a few months, and it sounds even better than the Breaking Bad coffee shop and Breaking Bad restaurant. The Walter White experience will cost from $45 to $49, and there are already more than 3,000 people on the waiting list (tickets have not yet been released). Sign up now, and don’t forget to take a selfie with the pink teddy bear when you get there.
