The Barbie movie doesn’t premiere in theaters until Friday, July 21 but Las Vegas is already going all in on all things hot pink and plastic. While bars and restaurants are coming up with sparkly themed menus and frothy cocktails in connection with the film, one downtown casino is going the extra mile — transforming the entire property into the “Dream Hotel.”

The downtown Las Vegas adults-only Circa casino-resort is turning its 438-foot-tall hotel tower pink, filling its year-round pool amphitheater, Stadium Swim, with pink lighting and inflatables, and introducing pink cocktails to its bars. All venues on property will offer a Dream Shot of pink vodka, watermelon vodka, cirtus, and cranberry juice — it’s free through the weekend if you present a Barbie movie ticket. Vegas Vickie’s Cocktail Lounge will offer a pink raspberry cocktail, The rooftop Legacy Club will serve a beachy coconut cocktail, and Stadium Swim will break out the pink towels and life-size Barbie boxes to go with a frozen berry drink. The takeover, which was coordinated alongside Warner Bros. Pictures, runs through Sunday, July 23.
