To celebrate Cherry Blossom season in Washington DC, Southern Efficiency created a Japanese-themed pop-up bar. Cute video is starting to emerge of people who braved the long lines.

At Mockingbird Hill, nostalgia reigns supreme in the form of the beloved Super Mario Bros., with the entire bar dedicated to the Mushroom Kingdom, from animatronic piranha plants peeking out of green pipes to glowing mystery boxes and a special corner reserved for super villain King Koopa.
Despite their differing decor, the two bars are connected via newly opened doorways between them, opening up a flowing, festive space for even more patrons to enjoy.
Cocktails from Senior Bar Manager Paul Taylor and food by Chef Evan Scarlatelli pay homage to the theme, too, including drinks like the "King Koopa Cup," a mix of Japanese whiskey, Genmaicha "popcorn" tea and ginger syrup with a lemon “crown” and "What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Smaller,” made with vodka, mandarin orange, pomelo and apricot soda.

Hurry if you want to go! It's only open until April 15.
