‘Barbiecore’ in Baltimore: Where to find Barbie-themed drinks and pink backdrops to mark the movie’s premiere
Barbie is on the brain for a lot of Marylanders this weekend as the long-awaited premiere of Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” movie arrives in theaters.
Some of us are googling how to “Barbie-fy” an outfit. Others (like Baltimore City’s Department of Transportation) are praising the iconic doll, full name Barbara Millicent Roberts, as a multi-modal transit queen.
Maybe you have tickets for a “Barbenheimer” double feature, the portmanteau for those who intend to watch both “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” two of this summer’s hotly anticipated releases, on the same day.
Or maybe you’d just like to get in on the hot pink-hued fun with a Barbie-themed drink or a nice backdrop for pictures of that Barbie-fied outfit. Read on for a suggestions on where to find some “Barbiecore” in Baltimore.
Mosaic Nightclub & Lounge
If you want to sip Malibu Punch and Life in Plastic cocktails surrounded by pink lights, pink balloons and hanging flowers, Mosaic Nightclub & Lounge’s Barbie bash is the place to be.
The Power Plant Live club will host a Barbie-themed “Pretty in Pink” party on Friday night, and marketing director Ashley Prosser is encouraging attendees to wear their pink stilettos and Ken vests. Mosaic will award $200 to the best-dressed Barbie and Ken lookalikes.
The club’s customers “love anything that has a theme to it,” Prosser said. “They want a reason to dress up and go out.”
