First Look: Burger King’s New ‘Whopper Bar’

Whopper Bar

Next time you have a rough day at the office, Burger King hopes you’ll cozy up to one of its new Whopper Bars set to open around America. Just don’t stay for too many rounds, or you might regret it the next day.

The Whopper Bar: All Beef

To be clear, the Whopper Bar won’t actually be serving alcohol — but it will be serving plenty of beef. The Burger King venture will offer Whoppers, Double Whoppers, and Steakhouse XT burgers, along with new Bourbon Whoppers, Three-Cheese Steakhouse XT burgers, and Pepper Bacon Steakhouse XT burgers. Each will come with options for 22 different toppings. Among the choices: guacamole, smoked bacon, or steak sauce.

A “Contemporary” Edge

The first Whopper Bar opens today at the Universal CityWalk in Orlando. Its look is totally different from the typical BK, as seen in the photo above: The bar boasts an open kitchen, a bar-like countertop, and a whole new color scheme. Employees will also wear different uniforms, matching the red, black, and gray restaurant design. Burger King hopes the updated take will give its brand a new “contemporary” edge, representatives say.

Whopper Bar Plans

Burger King is planning six more Whopper Bars around the globe by the end of 2009, with the next set to open in Munich over the summer. Los Angeles, New York and Singapore will soon see locations as well. Eventually, the company says it could open as many as 500 of the units around the world in everywhere from stadiums to casinos and cruise ships.

    Well, you wonder where a person would wear the Burger King body spray that was previously discussed in the Inquisitr. I guess the Whopper Bar would be the place to wear it.

    So does this mean they'll actually cook the burgers while you wait, or will they just huck them in the microwave like usual?

    I love to slather myself in Mayonnaise and randomly knock on people's doors. When they answer I check if they have carpeting or a hard wood floor. If it's carpeting I embrace them. If it's a hardwood floor I dive past them and try to slide all the way to the back door. I then find the fridge and apply any other available condiments to my body. Namely Ketchup and Mustard. After this I do the moonwalk then head home for a beer.

    I digg the concept! I really hate how restaurants and retailer have gotten to the point where they try and meet every consumers demand. If I go to Burger King its not for taco's its for a big freakin whopper or something else that take's two hands. Oh, and I'm not some fatty that sits on his ass all day getting fatter. I'm a slender guy that like a good burger once in awhile. GO BK!!

    Mass produced shit.
    Not only is this overpriced but it's also tatseless, unhygienical and it stinks.
    If you cannot make your own sandwich, then you desserve to be cattle for the corps marketing.

    You don't know the difference between a photo and concept art do you?

    Also, Burger King is horrible.

    Why not grab a beer out of their fridge when you are applying ketchup?

    Steakhouse XT burgers? Since when do foods have model grade initials assigned to them: XT …I guess it's food science… I want my XT burger with 19″ rims please

    This looks awesome. This is going to be a big hit and everyone's going to do it.

    It would require them to have a liquor license, something a family friendly fast food joint like BK is loathe to do.
