Bars where you can do more than just sit around and drink are really having a moment. 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 has brought its B. Lucky & Sons concept to Wollongong. It's a 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.

It's hidden behind the façade of a pawn shop, and decked out with eclectic furnishings. For drinks, the bar is slinging creative cocktails and alcoholic bubble teas. Meanwhile, the food menu consists of pizzas, toasties and some sides.

As far as games go, expect throwbacks for the millennial generation — featuring everything from Mario Kart and Space Invaders to NBA Hoops and a Dance Dance Revolution knock-off. Head in on a Tuesday for half-price games, or on Wednesday when selected games will spit out double tickets.

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 14th time.
