This is what Toronto's new Lego-themed bar looks like

The Brick Bar is the indoor, dark, air-conditioned activity Toronto needs this sweltering weekend.

Comprising over a million Lego blocks, it's a travelling pop-up that lets adults drink while playing with Legos for the ultimate nostalgia trip.

Appearing in other cities like London and New York, here it's situated at Rosehill Venue.

Pops of neon throughout the bar add a cheeky adult touch.

A Brick Burger ($8 with fries) is part of a basic bar menu that's nothing special but definitely decent, and will do in a pinch if you need a bite to eat. You have to dress your own burger with condiment packets, little kid birthday party style.

And yes, the bar is also decorated to look like it's made out of Lego bricks.
