Grab your ladies for a night on the town because the Sex and the City pop-up has extended its stay in River North. 

Prepare for an evening of designer shoes, girl talk and best of all, Cosmos! 

Ironside Bar and Galley in River North -- the bar responsible for the former 90210 bar -- turned the lower level of the bar into the Sex and the City pop-up bar, Cosmo Carries, on Valentine's Day.

Since then, they've poured so many Cosmos and gotten so much positive feedback from nostalgic fans that they've decided to keep it going for an additional few months.

"We were looking to do something that was really fun that would bring out nostalgia...I think as we have seen here, people have been missing out on drinking martinis," said manager Dave Andrews, talking about the "Cosmo Carrie's" bar.

We paid the pop-up a little visit and were blown away by the SATC-inspired decorations. 

The bar is decked out to celebrate the 1998 HBO hit, there are cardboard cutouts of your fave characters, vintage mirrors, and lots of pink decor.

When it comes to drinks, they will blow you away with four specialty martinis inspired by each of the glamorous ladies.

The 'Carrie' Cosmo is a pretty traditional take on the Cosmo you've seen the leading lady sip on plenty of occasions.

There's a 'Miranda' Powersuit Martini which, personally, was my favorite drink as the prosecco complimented the Wheatley vodka, Cocchi Americano, and lemon juice just right.  

You can channel your inner Charlotte with the Honey Appletini which includes New Amsterdam lemon vodka, apple pucker, mandarin Napoleone and honey syrup.  

Or, if you're feeling something more "desserty," the 'Samantha' Dark and Lovely includes vanilla vodka, Godiva dark chocolate, and High Brew Mexican vanilla cold brew coffee.

Supporting characters like Mr. Big, Aiden, and Skipper also get their own drinks. There's a total of 11 specialty cocktails crafted just for the pop-up.

It's also a great place to grab dinner with your gal pals!

Their menu includes a variety of dishes including the New York inspired burger, the French Onion Soup Grilled Cheese, the Buffalo Balls or the Kung Pao Brussel Sprouts.

Cosplay is encouraged, so start putting together your best 'Carrie' outfit!
