Milkshakes piled high with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, Teddy Grahams and brownies may sound like a childhood dream, but a new bar in Dallas is serving them up with an adult twist.
The Pharmacy, which opened Aug. 2, brings the vibe of an old-school ice cream parlor to the heart of the Deep Ellum bar district. Belly up to the counter and order one of several Instagram-worthy shakes.
Like the Moreo, made with vanilla ice cream, Oreo cookies and two ounces of Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Or the Toaster Fire milkshake featuring vanilla ice cream, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, RumChata and Fireball whiskey.
How about a Beatnik Brownie, made with vanilla ice cream, brownies, caramel, chocolate syrup and two ounces of Bailey's Irish Cream? Just look at those garnishes!
Excuse me, but you're drooling.
Buzzed milkshakes cost $13 each, though you can order any of them sans alcohol for $7. The Pharmacy also serves virgin and alcoholic ice cream floats using regular and Not Your Father's Root Beer, respectively.
Once you've satisfied your sweet tooth, take a turn on one of several arcade games at the dessert shop, including Pac-Man or pinball. The Pharmacy also has a couple of Skee-Ball lanes.
Take a virtual tour of the space:
The Pharmacy celebrates a grand opening on Thursday, Aug. 10. The shop will open at 1 p.m. and the first 50 milkshakes sold will cost just $1.
The party continues 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Aug. 10 with giveaways, specials and more.
