We can all now experience the level of joy only previously seen on President Bill Clinton’s face during a balloon downpour. That’s because The Boba Room is coming, an interactive bubble tea exhibit dedicated to all things boba.
The 1,600-square-feet space, created by Chaimi Food Studio was inspired by a unique thought from co-founders Yanqiong Zeng and Iris Danlu Xing that “life would be amazing if it occurred in a cup of bubble tea which constantly replenished its stock with the best tapioca and tea that Jesus himself could find.”
That quirky idea translates into a pop-up space that aspires to make visitors feel like they're walking through a cup of bubble tea, replete with 25-inch “boba” balloons to toss around, and art installations like six-foot-long gummy smiley faces, hearts, and lollipops, and neon lighting. Naturally, there’s edible bubble tea included in the price of a $10 ticket, from Vivi Bubble Tea Tales LES, Tea and Milk, Pa Tea, and Gong Cha.
Only glimpses are available of the space now, but Zeng sure does seem to be having a good time:
The Boba Room will be open from April 22 through May 6 at 355A Bowery. Tickets here.
