This was the best SXSW pop-up of 2023 – Roku City

SXSW 2023 is over and after 10 days filled with music, movies, pop-ups and more, we’re ready to share our favorite experiences. Last year our favorite pop-up was fort worth house. This year, we’re excited to share that it was Roku City.

Here’s why Roku City was our favorite SXSW 2023 Pop Up!

Roku City was the most anticipated pop-up this year with the Roku Diner waiting list filling up in minutes! Now we know why. Roku has taken over the Riley Building, a three-level building located at 315 Lavaca Street.

Roku City was like entering the Roku TV screensaver. Each room was full of interesting characters, fun activities, free stuff, and incredible attention to detail! They even had a Willy Wonka moment. At one point, guests were offered a candy bar that you open in hopes of finding a purple ticket. If you find a purple ticket, you could win a Roku streaming stick or a 55-inch TV courtesy of Best Buy!

Our favorite part of the pop up had to be the roof! Those who were lucky enough to get a reservation for the restaurant could sit down and eat in the restaurant. Even if guests didn’t have a reservation, they still received free coins that could be redeemed for a cupcake, coffee, and drink! There was also a fun photo shoot where you could take a picture on a purple sofa with animation Friends background !

Although dinner reservations were hard to come by, it was well worth it! The pop culture and purple themed menu offered a wide variety of delicious dishes.

With tasty treats, swag, and an overall good vibe, Roku City was a smash hit! We can’t wait to see what Roku does next year!
