Treat of the day, hooray hooray, Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq is here to stay! Straight from the creatives at FUNLAB, a new wonderland has arrived in Brisbane.

Toombul Shopping Centre's new entertainment and dining precinct has listened and replied to the growing demand for novelty bars in Brisbane. First, Holey Moley brought us a putt full of golfing fun, B. Lucky & Sons turned your childhood arcade memories up few hundred notches and now, when we are making plans to go out, we have Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq on the menu. Yes, it's a (freaking) circus/bowling arcade bar option!

Step right up and order your loaded booze shake, climb into the vintage booth seating and watch all your fairy floss dreams come to life. There is truly something for everyone. Remember when your high school boyfriend 'apparently' spent a ton of money at the claw machine until he finally won the cutest red seal for you! Awww it was sweet right? Well, now you can win your own! Or beat him/her at bowling - seriously the competitive thrills are endless. There are bumper cars, virtual reality experiences, Mario Kart, Air Hockey, Dance Dance Revolution and the opportunity to release all that day's office drama with a round of Whack n Win.

This seems like a great team building, date night, squad gathering, girls night out/boys night out, family games night or treat yourself kind of venue. As you would expect from any Cirque (Circus) its loud and lots of fun.
