The Brick Bar
An adults-only pop-up bar made out of Lego.
October 19, 2018
How many bricks of Lego does it take to build a bar? It probably wasn't the first Lego-related question we were going to ask (or test for ourselves), but The Brick Bar is proof that there are tangible answers to life's most ambitious questions.
According to the creators of Australia's first bar made entirely out of Lego, it's a million bricks. And while we don't actually know if anyone counted a million bricks, you can try and fact check this point it when it pops up on January 12.
The bar has already made a stop in Melbourne and Sydney, and its Brisbane stop will see it take to the Story Bridge Hotel. You better be certain you're into Lego, with each session running for 90 minutes over the Saturday.
You can expect elaborate Lego sculptures placed around the adults-only space — the Melbourne bar had a Lego bath, a Lego water feature and a Lego throne. There will be DJs playing across the afternoon and night, and you can try your hand at Lego table tennis or a Lego building competition.
As for food, it's likely there will be brick-shaped burgers and bevs will be served in Lego keep cups. Punters will also be able to make use of a huge pile of surplus bricks to fashion their own Lego creations, in public, with no shame at all. Just don't walk around barefoot.
Saturday, January 12 is clearly the day to be at the Story Bridge Hotel, with a ball pit bar also taking place in the same space on the same day. Tickets are on sale for both now, with The Brick bar setting you back between $25–35, or $55 if you'd like to head to both kidulting events.
