The Decades club will host a Y2K pop-up bar dedicated to '90s and year 2000 culture.
Lisa Frank, Super Nintendo, flip phones, and Furbies. If you grew up in the '90s, you might have fond memories of these pop culture throwbacks. You can revisit the era this weekend at Decades Nightclub in D.C. The "Y2K Pop-Up Bar" will be part nightlife and part art installation created by D.C. local artists Anna Pineapple and Kira Tai. The experience opens on Friday, April 5, and runs through the end of May.
Already the leader in retro club experiences, Decades worked with Pineapple and Tai to create something next-level.
"The details are what really make this pop-up bar special. This is not a turnkey pop-up. We sourced 20-year-old magazines, cut them up, and collaged every inch of this place,” says artist Anna Pineapple. “Want to read Rolling Stone's review of The Prodigy's album from 1997? We have that. Interested in bruising your ankles on a razor scooter after a few cocktails? We can make that happen.”

The installation includes a New Year’s Eve 2000 ball drop, glow-in-the-dark Nintendo room, and Lisa Frank tribute wall. Guests will be immersed in nostalgia, surrounded by CDs hung from the ceilings and clippings from magazines on walls and tabletops. Decades will have food and drinks to match, including cocktails with '90s names like the “Red Hot Chili Peppers” and “Kill Bill” and menu items like Philly cheesesteaks and unicorn waffles.
DJs will bring it all to life with music of all genres from the '90s and 2000s. The Y2K Pop-Up bar will be open at Decades on Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m to 2 a.m. and Sunday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., through May. There is no cover, and tables are first-come, first served.
