A pop-up restaurant and bar will open in July in Beverly Hills, bringing fans into the Golden Girls’ home.

The Golden Girls kitchen will recreate the look of the house where the four main characters of the beloved sitcom lived.

Betty White, Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty starred on the series, which was a smash hit from 1985 to 1992.

Rue’s character, Blanche Devereaux, an aging southern belle with an exuberant sex life, owns the house where three others all move in as tenants.

The pop-up restaurant, which is officially licensed, hopes to give fans an immersive journey back in time as the show sets in 1980s Miami.

Even Blanche’s unforgettable leafy wallpaper and sunny veranda will be incorporated into the restaurant’s design.

Throughout the series, the characters would gather in their kitchens to mull over their troubles – mostly in the middle of the night over cheesecake.

As a result, cheesecake and desserts in general will be heavily integrated into the menu, which will include several themed dishes.

The Dorothy: A Miami Style Sandwich is named after Bea Arthur’s character, Dorothy Zbornak, a bookish and acerbic divorcee who works as a substitute teacher.

Rue’s character also gets a name check with Blanche’s Georgia Style cookies, as does Estelle with Sophia’s Lasagna, which has a vegan version available.

Sophia, Dorothy’s mother, is a Sicilian immigrant who often entertains young women with earthy tales of the old country and treats them to Italian delicacies.

The pop-up establishment will include a shop – and along the way, guests can see a recreation of Shady Pines, Sophia’s former retirement home, which burned down under murky circumstances before she came to live with Blanche.

On the drinks menu, the theme continues with, for example, Rose on Rosé and Tea Arthur.

Derek Berry, who produced fan service pop-ups such as Good Burger and Saved By The Max, collaborated with Bucket Listers on the Golden Girls project.

“Bringing the Golden Girls to life has always been a dream of mine,” said Derek, who is now Director of Experiences at Bucket Listers.

“Our team is confident that die-hard fans of the series and newbies alike will walk away with a deeper appreciation for the series’ enduring legacy. We couldn’t be more excited to launch The Golden Girls Kitchen! »

Although tickets are not yet on sale, Bucket Listers has created a waiting list for potential visitors to the Golden Girls experience.

The last of the Golden Girls died on New Year’s Eve when Betty White, who played the hearty ditz Rose Nylund of small-town Minnesota, died of a stroke just weeks before her 100th birthday.

Estelle, Bea, and Rue had all died between 2008 and 2010, leaving Betty as the sole survivor of the main cast for over a decade.

The Golden Girls enjoyed an acclaimed seven-year run, winning 11 Emmy Awards, including at one time or another for each of the four lead actresses.

In 1992 the series ended because Bea didn’t want to do it anymore, so Betty joined Rue and Estelle in a series of sequels.

Titled The Golden Palace, the spin-off show only lasted one season in 1993 and saw the three remaining leads start a hotel together.
