Bars where you can do more than just sit around and drink are really having a moment in Sydney. And, in no small part, it's thanks to the ever-expanding empire of Funlab — the company in charge of the ever-popular Holey Moley, Strike Bowling and Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq.

Now, Funlab is about to launch its latest brainchild: B. Lucky & Sons. It's a kidult-friendly bar-meets-arcade with some actually good pawn-shop prizes, instead of the usual plastic crap you get. Think vintage Chanel bags, classic cameras and rare vinyls, plus a Nintendo 64 in its original box and Tune Squad swag from the 1996 cult classic, Space Jam. Yup, they're going real old school with this one.

The bar — which already has outposts in Melbourne and Brisbane — is coming to Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter from May 17. It'll be hidden behind the façade of an old pawn shop, and decked out with eclectic furnishings, from old-world casino chandeliers to neon-lit red octagonal booths. This East-meets-West fit-out will extend to the food, too, where pizzas will be topped with the likes of crispy wonton wrappers and bonito flakes or sausage, gravy and potato crisps. There'll also be bags of prawn crackers and pork bao buns.

For drinks, the bar will be slinging creative cocktails and alcoholic bubble teas — while no exact drinks have been announced yet, the Brissie bar has the Taro Bang (Frangelico, rum and taro with blueberry pearls and jellies) and the Passion Crackle (vodka, passion fruit and peach teas with apple flavoured pearls and jellies), so expect similar concoctions. If you prefer your cocktails shareable, you'll also be able to order punch bowls served with floral tea cups, too.

While Sydney games haven't been confirmed, expect throwbacks for the millennial generation — featuring everything from Mario Kart and Space Invaders to NBA Hoops and a Dance Dance Revolution knock-off. And although the venue will be open to littl'uns during the day, it'll be strictly adults-only at night, so you don't have to worry about being laughed at by a ten-year-old when you fall off Rainbow Road for the fourteenth time.

Find B Lucky & Sons at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park from Friday, May 17. It'll be open from 11am–11pm Monday–Thursday, 11am–midnight Friday, 10am–midnight Saturday and 10am–11pm Sunday.
