An adult playground and bar made of Legos is coming in June

You might be familiar with Brick Lane, but have you heard of The Brick Bar? The not-officially-affiliated-with-the-Lego-company roaming pop-up is coming to New York on June 19th, bringing with it an adult playground filled with one million blocks worth of fun.

For those still bitter their parents threw out their Lego set, at The Brick Bar you can be the master builder; get rowdy in a brick ball pit (Even though that sounds like the most painful thing imaginable) or challenge a pal to a table tennis competition built with over 22,000 bricks, while listening to a local DJ spinning tunes. The pop-up closes on June 23rd.

Following in the footsteps of pop-ups in London, Denver, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, New Yorkers will be able to enjoy cocktails served in a brick-shaped water bottle, red and green burger buns made to look like blocks, all while laying back in sculptural seating options also built with the toys. In reality, this self-proclaiming adults-only utopia of nostalgia is gimmicky Instagram bait and will probably be a clusterfuck. 

But for those less cynical, this adults-only place to hang and grab a drink could be a fun way to decompress after work with friends. And similar to the American Girl Doll store's cafe, we imagine you could bring your own plastic Lego buds to join in on the experience in case they're feeling left out.

Maybe you can even have your own version of Big, since we hear there's a toy brick wishing well, teleporting us back to the days of jungle gyms and hopscotch. 

Tickets to the Brick Bar are available here
