Not to be confused with St. Pete’s late-night Kava hangout Mad Hatters, this upcoming pop-up is a dinner theater-meets-mixology event that leads guests down a whimsical, "Alice in Wonderland"-themed rabbit hole.

The entire program runs for about 90 minutes, as the Mad Hatter himself leads the audience through the familiar tale, as professional mixologists provide three boozy teas that scream "Drink Me."

All of the craft cocktails provided will be made with gin, but there will be non-alcoholic tea options available as well.

Although the secret location of this pop-up has yet to be revealed, tickets can be purchased at feverup.com for $61 per person. Each ticket comes with three whimsical, themed cocktails and all of the Insta-worthy photo opportunities you can dream of.

The Mad Hatter's Gin & Tea Party happens from Thursday-Sunday throughout the month of July. Times range from afternoon tea at 2 p.m.  at the earliest, with the latest party starting at 10 p.m. A full list of dates and their available times can be found via madhatterginteaparty.com.

This adult tea party is 21+, and its recently-updated COVID-19 measures can be found here.

This traveling pop-up has already made its rounds in cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, Chicago,  Philadelphia, Atlanta and London, as it heads to Tampa for the very first time in July.

The tea party's venues are typically adorned with vines hanging from the ceilings, colorful lights, floral decor, and fancy tea sets.

Visit @madhatterginteaparty on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with the latest updates from this traveling tea party.

And yes, you are more than welcome to come dressed as your favorite Alice in Wonderland character, so get those top hats and petticoats ready.
