From soaring stilt walkers, slinky snake charmers and sassy showgirls, to contact jugglers, comedy magicians and cocktails with a curio twist – Sydneysiders are in for a multisensory feast of cirque senses when Showtime at Archie Brothers (‘Showtime’) parades into Alexandria.
Having just raised its curtains and continuing every second Saturday night of each month up until 13 November 2021, Showtime will unveil a kaleidoscope circus of live immersive entertainment, with Unusualist magicians, tarot card readers, roving circus performers, burlesque dancers and face painters to bedazzle even the most avid of party-goers.
Brought to you by Funlab – the masterminds behind Holey Moley Golf Club, Strike Bowling Bars, B.Lucky & Sons and Sky Zone, Showtime will also offer up Archie Brothers’ signature selection of wondrous ‘‘kid-ult’ activities to keep guests guessing throughout the three-hour spectacle Guests will be able to wine, dine and game with gusto – winning tickets arcade-style and trading them for wacky prizes including pop vinyls, gaming consoles, and 90s retro paraphernalia.
A circus-themed ‘leisure-tainment’ wonderland, Archie Brothers plays host to 135 arcade and ticket games including Mario Kart and Willy Wonka, theme-park activities including Dodgems and Coney Island, trippy virtual reality experiences, bowling, The Claw, and ThrillRide, one of Australia’s best interactive XD motion theatres.
And who could forget Archie Brothers’ spectacular interiors – a tasty treat for the senses! Upon entering through red velvet drapes, the scent of popcorn and fairy floss heavy on the air, Showtime guests will look out to a sea of colourful flashing arcade game signs, to the soundtrack of DJ-spun tunes.
For parched punters, the tricked-up Archie Brothers cocktail bar – built to resemble a vintage carousel – will be serving up a signature Showtime Disco Mirror Ball cocktail, the perfect accompaniment to a night of surprise and awe. Served with two cans of Red Bull, the tasty tipple blends a serving of passionfruit, cranberry juice, triple sec, whiskey and lime.
With a range of ‘loaded’ shakes and cocktails, Showtime guests will have the choice of alcoholic or non-alcoholic options including the Candy Stand milkshake topped with whipped cream, a Nerds and giant lollypop.
To tantalise taste-buds during Showtime, Archie Brothers’ new Randos Sandos menu will offer a hybrid of circus, theme park and American-diner grub mains and morsels – from a range of mouthwatering sandos and pizzas, through to share grub and comfort food sides.
Indulge in the eight-hour hickory-smoked Brisket Sando or carb-load with the Cheese Steak Sando – a potato bun roll sandwiching Grass-fed Tasmanian Wagyu beef, charred capsicum, sauteed onions, hand-stretched Victorian mozzarella and red and black cracked pepper. Lighter but equally scrummy options include Corn Ribs, Slider Tros, Mac & Cheese, Onion Rings, and plenty more!
