Hold onto your hats - a circus arcade bar is coming to Auckland.

The new bar, called 'Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq', will open at the new Westfield in Newmarket in September.

"Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq is like nothing you've ever seen before. Think Cirque du Soleil meets Glastonbury. Mind-blowing decorations will lead you through to an extensive range of activities for fun-loving Kiwis to partake in," a spokesperson told Newshub.

It will offer an extensive variety of activities, including dodgem cars, carousels, bowling, mini-rides, arcade games and heaps more.

"Once you've worked up an appetite, head to the American-style diner to indulge in colourful burgers, hotdogs, loaded fries and more," the spokesperson says.

"And of course, no night out would be complete without an extravagant, Instagrammable cocktail - of which Archie Brothers has an abundance."

It comes from the team behind Auckland viaduct mini-golf bar Holey Moley - already a huge hit amongst Kiwis.
