Red Bull X Pac Man
Red Bull recently celebrated the release of their limited-edition Pac-Man inspired cans by hosting a party of retro perfection. The 80’s themed event took place on November 8th in the cozy downstairs of the Flower Shop.
Different patterns and textures filled this hole-in-the-wall pub located in the Lower East Side. The Flower Shop’s unique interior is artistically dated and unconventional, the perfect setting to instill nostalgia for the past. The vibe of the place is truly unique. The couches, flower displays and framed pictures invoked a comfort level similar to that of being at home. The downstairs is finished to be a friendly space to hangout with a fireplace and pool table.
Of course, Red Bull shook things up a bit by adding Pac Man to the decor mix for the evening. A live-action Pac Man game took center stage, and guests were encouraged to beat the infamous “high score.” In true gamer fashion, pinball machines were also a part of the excitement, as well as the newly launched cans that were modeled inside the screens of old-school television sets.
To satisfy every guest’s Red Bull craving, a specialty cocktail menu provided three drink options creatively named Pinky’s Drinky, Level Up, and Ghosted. All were deliciously blended and gave a noticeable kick of energy.
The party was powered with music from Hannah Bronfman and Kitty Cash. Pac Man himself was even there to meet-and-greet with guests, snapping photos with his fans all night.
From start to finish, the downstairs of the Flower Shop was packed, a full house by all means. The location, theme, and occasion were the perfect way to honor the collaboration of Red Bull and Pac Man. The Pac Man designed cans are currently in-stores now, be sure to check them out! The promotion will run from October 29th to the end of the year.
