The Brick Bar

An adults-only pop-up bar made out of Lego.

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 Sydney Harbour on November 16 and 17.

The bar has already made a stop in Melbourne, and its Sydney stop will see it take to the harbour on floating venue Starship Sydney. Why exactly the vent is held on a boat is unclear, but, one thing's for sure: you better be certain you're into Lego. Each session will run for 90 minutes over Friday night and all day 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. And there's a ball pit for some reason.

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.
