Pittsburgh Hosts LEGO Pop-Up Bar This Weekend

Coming to Pittsburgh brick by brick, The Brick Bar allows adults to create while sipping cocktails.

While LEGOS may be intended for children, Pittsburgh’s newest pop-up bar is hoping to reclaim the bricks for an adult audience this weekend. 

The Brick Bar, an international touring pop-up constructed out of more than 1 million LEGO bricks, will bring LEGO-themed fun to the SouthSide Works this Friday and Saturday night only. 

Tickets, which range from $15-$25, allow visitors 90 minutes in the bar to create their own block art, listen to music and interact with LEGO furniture and some of the larger touring sculptures, such as a wishing well, a throne and a ball pit. 

The pop-up is also inviting builders who like a challenge to compete for prizes. One of the tables, which was made from over 22,000 bricks, will also be used for a table tennis competition.

LEGO-themed cocktails will be available from Pittsburgh bartender Spencer Warren, whose team previously worked on the Miracle pop-ups. Warren also owns The Warren Neighborhood Bar, named Best Downtown Escape by Pittsburgh Magazine in our February issue.
