(Original story 6/27/19): Cleveland has now officially reached peak pop-up-bar-aimed-at-nostalgic-Millennials. Just last week, we announced a temporary ball-pit bar is coming to our city this fall. Also headed down the pike are a pop-up Lego Bar and a Mario Kart race. 

Today, we got the dates for Cleveland's upcoming Pokemon-themed pop-up PokeBar.

From Oct. 5 to 6 and 12 to 13, Pokemon fans can indulge in Pokemon-inspired burgers, adult beverages (or mocktails) and games. For those in the know of appropriate Pokemon lingo, the still-to-be-announced pop-up space will be divided into "7 regions" and include plenty of time to hunt, battle and catch ... 'em all.

The event is open to fans of all ages, but anyone under 21 must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are $45 and come with your choice of burger and beverage. There will also be prizes awarded for the best dressed so come wearing the appropriate attire.
