If you ever thought, while binge-watching Breaking Bad, that it’d be cool to make that RV meth lab into some kind of bar where patrons get to cook up their own alcoholic creations or that your office could really use a transporter to beam you to some exotic locale for your lunches and breaks, you’re in luck (sort of).
For three months, starting in July, a bar called ABQ (AlBuquerQe) will pop up in London, England. Twenty people at a time will be invited into the Breaking Bad RV look-a-like to cook their own fantastical cocktails. They’ll even get to make these creations wearing traditional chemistry gear like Walt and Jesse used on the show while cooking up their meth.

“We got inspired by [Breaking Bad] and thought to do something unique on those lines. The RV is now being kitted out and will be able to house 20-22 people at one time. Visitors will be getting a unique experience of ‘cooking’ their own cocktails with the help of expert mixologists.”
Tickets for a two hour session can be purchased on a first come, first served basis. Check out the ABQ website for more details. As Jesse Pinkman would say, “Yeah, Mr. White. Yeah science.”
One hundred million dollars can get you a whole lot of things, including an office building that looks like Star Trek‘s Enterprise, if that’s what you’re into. NetDragon Websoft, a Chinese game development company, invested roughly that amount to build the 853-foot replica.
And if you’re a true Star Trek fan you’re likely to be asking which Enterprise it is. Fortunately the Wall Street Journal has uncovered the mystery. Founder of NetDragon, Liu Dejiam, revealed that the design of the building was influenced by the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, which was the focal point of three Star Trek movies shown in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
The game development company went through proper channels and got the rights for the Enterprise likeness from CBS before embarking on four years of construction. They are the only licensed Star Trek building in the world.
But if you want to visit you may have a long way to go — it’s located on the southeastern coast in the Chinese province of Fujian at Changle.
