Time for a fun trip down memory lane for us VHS lovers of the 1980's & 90's!!! Yes, that's right kids...back in the day, us 'old folks' used to drive to a store and wonder the halls of a GLORIOUS PLACE called Blockbuster Video, going up and down the isles picking out movies to RENT ON TAPE AND THEN DRIVE HOME TO PLAY THEM IN A TAPE MACHINE ;0 Haa and now that piece of nostalgia is back with a bang plus so much more at this super fun sounding POP UP experience in LA. According to Bucket Listers ...
“Be kind, please rewind.”
We’re bringing back Blockbuster in this one-of-a-kind immersive Blockbuster drinking experience. It’s completely inspired by those days in the 90s when roaming Blockbuster’s aisles without aim was actually considered a pretty cool thing to do.
This new Blockbuster Speakeasy takes everything you remember about choosing a movie pre-streaming, but includes a full bar serving up delicious cocktails and more! Best of all? You won’t have to worry about returning any “rentals.” When you enter the speakeasy, you’ll be greeted at the door with your very own membership card. However, in this reimagined setting, it will actually act as your drink ticket.
You can roam around for your libation of choice. Instead of genres, aisles will be sectioned off by different kinds of cocktails and beers. And instead of grainy VHS tapes, you can choose from themed cocktails inspired by popular 90s and 2000s movies.
As with any Blockbuster experience, you can expect a ton of snacks in stock including popcorn and a large candy selection. You can also make it a Blockbuster brunch! Don’t miss out on special brunch events starting Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th. The space will turn into the ultimate breakfast club with a special brunch menu, music, surprises, and more. Tickets include one entree and one welcome throwback cocktail. The dates are sure to sell out with limited capacity available, so reserve your seat now.
