Expect the unexpected as a new circus pop-up rolls into town over in Alexandria. Organised by Funlab, the brains behind Strike Bowling and Holey Moley, comes a new festival of wandering stilt walkers, snake charmers and fortune tellers.
Once a month, Showtime will transform Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq into a kaleidoscope dreamworld, where unusual games, bizarre performances and crazy cocktails run amok. Alongside the exciting eccentricities, you’ll find the arcade's usual setup, so you can also enjoy an evening of nostalgia with dodgems, bowling, laser tag and even a game of Mario Kart.
While their carousel-themed bar will still be offering the usual jazzy cocktails and extravagant hard shakes, Showtime will also be whizzing up wacky Disco Mirror Ball drinks. If running away with the circus has got you peckish, then you can order from their American diner-style menu of rando sandos, pizza slices, sliders and more.
You can find Archie Brothers Cirque Electrique at 75 O'Riordan St, Alexandria, NSW 2015. Showtime takes place every second Saturday of the month from 7pm to 10pm until November. Calendar looking a bit empty? Let's fix that - read our roundup of the quirkiest days out in Sydney here.
