Update: Tickets for PokéBar's Miami stop are now on sale via eventbrite.com for $45. The pop-up runs for two days only, October 19 and 20, at a still-undisclosed location in Miami.

If you're still playing Pokémon Go on your iPhone, you'll want to get tickets for a new pop-up bar coming to Miami.

The PokéBar pop-up has announced it's coming to Miami on its national tour.

The pop-up bar will serve custom Pokémon burgers and themed cocktails, along with a full-size version of the game to play.

The ticketed pop-up ($35) will offer guests two hours of game time in a venue that's divided into seven regions with different opportunities to seek out, catch, and battle the various creatures in the Pokémon world.

This Instagram-worthy pop-up also features plenty of selfie time with Pikachu, as well as costume contests and prizes for the division winner of each gaming session.

When you're done playing, enjoy Pokémon-themed food and games and drink Pokémon cocktails.

Presale tickets are now on sale for the PokéBar pop-up. It runs for two days only: October 19 and 20, 2019, at a still-undisclosed location in Miami.

Tickets cost $45 (plus $8.91 in taxes and fees) through Eventbrite, and each ticket holder can choose from several two-hour windows for the pop-up. Each ticket includes a Pokémon-inspired burger, one themed cocktail, beer, wine, or two non-alcoholic drinks.

Ticket holders will also enjoy games and prizes, including trivia and a best-dressed contest. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Presale tickets are available through Eventbrite, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The PokéBar Pop-Up isn't the only themed bar coming to town this year. Brick Bar, a Lego-themed pop-up bar, is also headed to Miami for two nights this October. Neither the PokéBar Pop-Up nor the Brick Bar is an authorized event — though they both sound awesome just the same.

PokéBar Pop-Up. 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on October 19 and 20; thepokebarpopup.com. Tickets cost $45 at eventbrite.com.
