New York City and Chicago are about to get hit with nostalgia because The Malibu Barbie Cafe will be launched in a few weeks. This is all thanks to collaboration between Bucket Listers and Mattel. The cafe will feature Barbie-inspired dining in a cool beach-vibe setting that's perfect for taking Instagram pics or shooting TikToks.

The cafe is classified as a fast-casual restaurant however guests can look forward to some delicious dishes thanks to MasterChef semi-finalist Becky Brown.

The menu will include all-day brunch items, desserts, drinks, and several more options.

"We are delighted to announce the opening of The Malibu Barbie Cafe, a truly unique dining experience that celebrates Barbie and all the brand represents.” Julie Freeland, a senior director at Mattel said.


She also added, “At Mattel we are always looking for exciting, new ways to bring the Barbie experience to life. From the beach-loving décor to the menu, every detail has been thoughtfully designed to celebrate the iconic Barbie style, with nostalgic details fans will love.”

To partake in this experience you need a ticket purchase which will get you a reserved seat and guaranteed window of time to visit, as well as your choice of entree.

The tickets aren't selling yet, but there's a waitlist for either New York City or Chicago that you can join. The cafe will open first in New York City on May 17, then in Chicago on June 7.
