Although since it was first released in 1985 the gaming world has moved on considerably, there's still a soft spot in everyone's hearts for games such as Super Mario Brothers thanks to their simplicity and now iconic 8-bit retro style that's still an adored part of pop culture in a way that no modern first-person shooter or MMOG will ever quite be and the proof is in places just like this Mario themed bar in Washington D.C. that has people queuing for up to two hours just to get it.
Why would you queue for two hours to get into a bar you may ask? well if you're a lover of the game and all things Nintendo then the answer is pretty clear the moment you step inside. The pop-up bar inside the Mockingbird Hill night spot is packed full of Mario themed props that include glowing mystery boxes and fluffy clouds whilst the walls are lined with the green pipes made famous in the video games.
In addition to the Mario themed murals and decor the bar also has a series of special cocktails on the menu to match that have cleverly thought up names such as It’s a Me, Amario and King Koopa Cup. The bar will be open until April 15th before it returns to its normal self.
Ever wanted to relive the nostalgia of Super Mario Brothers whilst enjoying a drink? then this pop-up bar in Washington D.C. is perfect.
And if that wasn't cool enough, it also others Mario inspired drinks too!
