UPDATE: This event was re-scheduled from 2019 to 2020 – this article has been updated to reflect those changes.
There’s Lego movie, Lego stores, Lego art exhibits, so why not a Lego bar?
“The Brick Bar”, a Lego-themed pop-up bar, is on a worldwide tour. The pop-up is partially constructed from 1 million Lego bricks, and will be stopping in Cleveland on February 7th and 8th. (It’s not called the “Lego Bar”, because Lego isn’t connected with the event.)
The Brick Bar press release states that the bar will be in a “secret location”, and promises “building competitions for prizes, a table tennis competition played on a lego built table with over 22,000 bricks, a wishing well and more”, all with a live DJ, ball pit, specialty drinks and food.
Yikes, that is some bright food.
This is happening in conjunction with the “Ball Pit Party”, where you and your friends get to…you guessed it. Jump around in a big ball pit. Both events are run by the some company, and will presumably be held close to each other.
To attend the events you’ll need to sign up for pre-release tickets from the Brick Bar event page. Both events have tickets are available for one and a half hour time slots.
Tickets are $30 to attend both events, with a time slot of your choice. For an individual event ticket, you have to book a scheduled time. Friday tickets are $20 for a slot between 5pm to 11pm. Saturday tickets are $15 to attend between 11am and 2pm, $20 to attend from 2pm until 11pm.
All tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All ages are welcome, but anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a parent. Also be sure to wear shoes, have you ever stepped on a Lego?
