BUSHWICK — They're going from ta-tas to 'za. 

Owners of breast-themed bar Boobie Trap took over the pizza place across the street at 254 Irving Ave., transforming it into a bar and restaurant called Pizza Party that opened to the public Thursday night.

Despite deviating from Boobie Trap's namesake decor,  Pizza Party's vibe — with its leopard-print booths, action figures, vintage movie posters and a "Super Mario Bros." mural — is just as quirky.

"I feel like Pizza Party is Boobie Trap's kid brother," said Kristen North, who along with co-owner Paul King debuted Boobie Trap last August.

"This kind of looks like my room growing up," King added. "I had every one of those action figures."

Pizza Party takes over the space that used to house Verde Coal Oven Pizza, where property owner Charlie Verde discovered a coal-fired oven that had been built into the foundation of the building in 1907. He turned the spot into a rustic pizzeria in 2011.

North and King said they took over after Verde started looking to get out of the restaurant business, quickly transforming the space when they moved in in January.

The tables are covered with games like tic-tac-toe and schoolgirl game MASH, which diners can play with dry-erase markers. Eight balls sit on all the tables, and a neon sign encourages patrons to "party on."

And the back hallway is decked out in scenes from the classic Nintendo game "Super Mario Bros."

"You’ll probably notice something new every time," North said.

Aside from the party atmosphere, the menu includes pizzas like "Can you fig it!," a pie with sun-dried figs, mushrooms, sauteed swiss chard, marinated chicken and green veggie sauce. Another, "Go to kale!," features spicy carrot ricotta, pesto, sauteed onions, kale, tomato and bacon.

One pie — "The Charlie" — is even named in honor of Verde and includes four kinds of cheese and honey.

"It’s respect to him for having found the oven," King explained.

All the pizzas can be made with gluten-free dough or vegan cheese. Other items, like jojo fries and Italian beef sandwiches, are references to King's hometown of Seattle and North's hometown of Chicago.

Pizza Party will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. and will eventually offer delivery and brunch, including a special that comes with a Gatorade and an aspirin.
