Memphis Travel, the city's official tourism organization, announced just in time for Elvis Week that it will be bringing Elvis Presley's iconic Jungle Room to fans all over the U.S. with an immersive new pop-up experience.

"Love Me (Bar)Tender" marks the first-ever replica of the rockstar's at-home tiki bar - complete with the shaggy green carpets, rock waterfall, and Hawai'i-inspired wooden furniture - which fans can soon enjoy without having to go all the way to his Graceland home in Memphis. 

Apart from the identical recreation of the Jungle Room, visitors can also expect live band performances, Elvis-inspired beverages, and a dedicated photo booth. 

The Love Me (Bar)Tender pop-up is slated to hit New York on October 5-6, Boston on October 10-11, and Chicago on October 18-19, and will be available for Elvis fans in each city for two nights.

The best part: Entrance is free, and interested visitors can pre-register on the Memphis Travel website

The Jungle Room was first in Graceland in 1965 and was inspired by Elvis's love for Hawai'i.

The room, which Elvis treated as a den, was the same where "King of Rock and Roll" recorded some of his iconic hits such as "Moody Blue" and "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain."
