Cool experience alert! For just two nights this July, Vancouver will play host to a pop-up Brick Bar – the first of its kind. Consisting of over 1 million blocks, the bar will be created completely from building blocks, assembled to take you on the ultimate nostalgia trip.

The Vancouver Brick Bar will also feature sculptures and will also have an abundance of blocks for people to shape into their own creations (best sculptures will win a prize!). There will also be a local DJ spinning tunes all day.

This unique bar will be sold on a first come first serve basis with tickets limited and will only run for two nights this summer in Vancouver, so make sure to grab a pair before they sell out!
