It's a temporary takeover!

 

Korean BarbieQ is the pop up restaurant that you’ve never seen, felt, or tasted before. Imagine badass Korean food paired with blow-your mind cocktails in a deconstructed barbie-art installation. It’s slightly nostalgic and a bit weird, but mostly it’s a full sensory experience designed to flip expectation on its head.

Tickets include Korean BBQ prepared by Chef Bill Espiricueta of Smōk, beverages, and live music — all within an immersive art experience.

Must be 21 years or older to wander the Barbie world.

The Chef & Bartender

Chef Bill Espiricueta, Smōk

They say where there’s smoke there’s fire, and Chef William Espiricueta is no exception. Born in Austin, Texas, Chef Bill has been eating, making, and enjoying BBQ with a fiery passion from an early age. He got his start at Kansas City’s progressive Bluestem Restaurant before jumping to fine dining, working with Nobu Matsuhisa at Nobu in downtown Dallas’s Crescent Hotel, then finding his way to Boulder where he was drawn to the more casual atmosphere and focus on locally sourced food at Oak at Fourteenth. Chef Bill worked closely for six years with Oak and Acorn Chef Steve Redzikowski, pushing the standards of culinary creativity and learning how to build, grow, and sustain a successful restaurant. Early in 2018 he left Oak and Acorn to open Injoi Korean Kitchen at Zeppelin Station and in May, took over the “No Vacancy” space in the market hall to launch Gaijin where he’s serving up ramen bowls and yakitori. Smōk, Chef Bill’s first restaurant of his own, is set to open in the new Source Hotel & Market on August 13.
