The Time Travel Cafe 2022

This immersive theatre party will make you feel like you've leapt back to 1920s Paris.

Movies about Deloreans, phone booths and hot tubs might all claim otherwise, but travelling through time isn't currently a possibility. But if you'd like a Doctor Who-meets-Midnight in Paris experience — with Ernest Hemingway chatting to Joan of Arc included, too — this immersive Brisbane show lets you definitely pretend otherwise.

Taking over Woolloongabba's Mr Badgers, The Time Travel Cafe is actually a big theatre party. You'll sit, you'll talk with your fellow attendees and you'll feel like you've leapt back to 1920s Paris. Oh, and because Bill and Ted really are pioneers when it comes to messing with all things temporal, you'll also chat with travellers from throughout history.

It's not how you'd usually spend an hour at a bar, but that's a big part of the attraction between Wednesday–Sunday from Thursday, May 26–Sunday, June 26 (with sessions at 6.15pm, 7.30pm and 8.45pm nightly).

Tickets cost $65, and you're encouraged to dress up in either formal or surreal attire — and, if you're wondering what the latter entails, you can be the judge.
