Sydneysiders are constantly searching for things to do that include more than just sitting around and drinking — we've seen that in the popularity of Newtown's Holey Moley and the growing amount of kidult activities available around town. And now, from the creators of the aforementioned mini golf bar, comes a new funhouse-slash-cocktail joint: Archie Brothers Electric Circus.
The place is crammed with activities. The Alexandria warehouse features everything your inner child could possibly desire. Old-school dodgem cars? Check. Bowling lanes? Check. Arcade games? Check. A 3D interactive theatre ride? We don't even know what that is, but check.
The space is anchored around a tricked-out cocktail bar with a 'carnival' aesthetic — you might find yourself sitting in a repurposed saucer seat or on an old carousel horse. That's where punters will find a selection of boozy beverages including an array of extravagant spiked shakes. The diner will also be serving food like burgers, hot dogs and fries. It's all very much a novelty, but with the promise of arcade games and cocktails, is sure to pique the interest of punters.
Games are priced pretty affordably — a game of bowling is $10, a go on the dodgem cars is $4 and you can top-up a card to play arcade games for $20, $50 or $70.
