Breaking Bad may have gone off the air in 2013, but its legacy lives on. A new feature film based on the property, El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, has just hit Netflix and, to celebrate, a Breaking Bad-inspired pop-up is immersing fans in the world of Walter White, Jesse Pinkman, and co.
The Breaking Bad Experience takes over the West Hollywood space formerly occupied by Saved by the Max and, like that former occupant, is a fairly long-term pop-up; reservations are currently being accepted through January 31, 2020. The project shares a creative team with Saved by the Max and the recent Beverly Hills 90210 Peach Pit pop-up, and it shares another thing missing from some other pop-culture “experiences”: approval of the the intellectual property holders themselves. Vince Gilligan, the creator of Breaking Bad, personally signed-off on the restaurant, and several of the show’s stars have stopped by.
After you’ve snapped your Instagrams at straight-from-the-show installations, you’ll be able to order a full meal of dishes, including Heisenburger Sliders, Funyun Pie, and Marie’s Purple Cake. As for drinks, you’ll get a chance to sip Dos Hombres Mezcal, a just-launched brand developed by leading men Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, or a selection of creatively-garnished cocktails.
The Breaking Bad Experience is located at 7100 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood. Tickets start at $30 per person and require advance purchase.
