You Gotta Catch This Pokémon Themed Pop-up Bar Coming to New York City
Amongst the many treats that wannabe Pokémon Masters will get to enjoy will be a live DJ, themed cocktails, Pokémon trivia, and a costume contest with lots of prizes, Gothamist reported. A ticket also covers a meal, which is your choice of a Pokémon burger with buns that look like Pikachu, Charmander, and Squirtle. They’re almost too cute to eat.
Maybe you’ve never considered what it would be like if Ash Ketchum actually decided to eat his beloved Pikachu (or, maybe you have), but here’s your chance to find out.
But perhaps the best part of this event is the real-life Pokémon Go obstacle course that the organizers set up. The bar will be divided into seven “regions” for two-hour catching sessions, and according to AM New York, whoever completes all seven regions will be the winner.
The pop-up is organized by an Australian immersive event planning company called Viral Ventures, which has brought this same PokéBar to other cities in Australia and North America.
This ultimate Pokémon experience will be happening on Sundays from November 3 to 24 at Radegast Hall and Biergarten, which is located at 113 N. Third St.
Tickets for the event are $55, and include an alcoholic drink of wine, beer, or themed cocktail (non-alcoholic drink purchases get an extra drink), entry to the pop-up, and a Pokémon burger. Some days are already sold out at the time of this article’s publication, and sales end on June 24.
Act fast if you want to catch ‘em all.
