Popbar Opens In Downtown Commons

Popbar Opens In Downtown Commons

With over 50 people waiting in line for the brand new Popbar to soft open, the store glows in the night of the Downtown Commons. This is the first Popbar franchise to open in Northern California and with another coming soon to Elk Grove! Popbar serves the classic bar with a modern twist that is made-by-hand. All bars are all natural and fully customizable. With each bite of their bars, there’s a satisfying morsel of awesomeness. There is a balance from the sweetness to the flavor that makes you want more.

Popbar offers a variety of bars with a ton of flavors and toppings. Each type of Popbar is consists of gelato, yogurt, or sorbet. Flavors include strawberry, kiwi, chocolate, banana, pineapple, coffee, and a whole lot more. Also, your popbar can be dipped in flavors ranging from dark chocolate to caramel chocolate. Finally, your popbar can be covered in nuts from pistachios, hazelnut, almonds, coconut, sprinkles, waffle cones, and even caramel corn. Moreover, you can even have your popbar converted to a popwich, which is gelato, yogurt, or sorbet inside and 2 crunchy chocolate cookies on the outside.

Additionally, Popbar offers amazing milkshakes all handmade. This is Popbar’s modern twist of the classic milkshake. The milkshake is served in a milk-jug style cup with a chocolate dipped waffle cone with whipped cream. Flavors include green tea, strawberry, vanilla caramel, coffee, chocolate, and vanilla.  All milkshakes are handcrafted and made to order.

Upon entering the general area of the Downtown Commons with the new development, I found a line out the door of the establishment. The staff all wore matching uniforms and is super friendly, even with the crowds. The lines moved fast as the staff quickly filled orders with a smile. Upon ordering, all the options put me at awe (I couldn’t choose). I found myself choosing a sorbet covered in chocolate. I was happy and satisfied. The patrons of the place all came with the excitement of the place and Popbar did not disappoint.

About Popbar

Loc Tran and Minh Pham are the owners of this Popbar location. When Loc visited Southern California about 3 years ago, he tried out Popbar. He instantly fell in love with the perfection of Popbar’s products. With this passion, he wanted to bring this to his hometown so that the people in this community could experience the joy he found with Popbar. This passion drove him to open Nothern California’s first Popbar. Another thing to note, Loc isn’t a stranger to opening establishments such as this. With his drive, he has successfully opened and ran Hokee Poke in Elk Grove and Sacramento. Now, here he is on to his next venture.

I definitely recommend Popbar as the bars are super balance and does not leave you with the nasty feeling of eating desserts.
