Dolly Parton Pop-up at Adiõs Bar

The team behind Nashville’s popular all pink rooftop restaurant and bar, White Limozeen, hosts a don’t-miss pop-up at Birmingham’s Adiõs Bar on January 19. The theme—Dolly Parton’s birthday, of course!

Not only will you get to hang out at one of the coolest bars in The Magic City, but you’ll also get to taste Dolly-inspired cocktails. Ooh la la! One must-try is the Patron Saint of Tennessee with Campesino Ages, passionfruit, house-made coconut and pineapple.

Why should you attend?

“It’s a no-brainer, it’s completely out of our element and it’s always nice to have something different from what we normally do. And as for Dolly, she’s a very philanthropic person—from helping her local community and her focus on education to the millions she helped raise for COVID research—why not celebrate her birthday while also having some friends from Nashville tend the bar at Adiõs?”

José Medina Camacho, Adiõs Bar

Be sure to arrive hungry. Local food truck W. Vincente will be at the event serving up delicious tacos and more beginning at 6PM.

When: Thursday. January 19 | 8PM-Midnight
Where: Adiõs Bar, 2218 1st Ave N Suite 100, Birmingham, AL 35203
Cost: Free admission

While birthday parties are great fun, we have another way you can celebrate Dolly and that’s learning more about and registering for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. If you didn’t know, Dolly is a huge reading advocate, so we’re pretty sure she’d be tickled pink by your support.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a gift giving program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth to age five—no matter the family’s income.

The best part—the Library is available in Birmingham, so local children can receive free books. Register a child here.
