Lincoln is set to welcome a new entertainment and gaming centre in the form of The Arcade Warehouse, which is ready to open its doors as soon as restrictions allow.
The 6,097 sq ft Dixon Street venue will feature over 100 machines, and follows the success of the Scunthorpe Arcade Warehouse opened by directors Caton Airey and Dan Rees last year.
“There has been a lot of blood, sweat and tears that has gone into this,” Airey told Lincolnshire Live. “We really want to cater to everyone and have something that people of all ages can enjoy.”
“There’s something for a toddler, right through to an adult. It’s unique.”
Arcade Warehouse will offer sessions on its range of cabinets and video consoles – which includes Xbox, Playstation, Mega Drive and SNES – from 12pm to 8pm Monday to Thursday, and 12pm to 10pm Friday to Sunday.
The former Palmers bathroom and kitchen warehouse will also feature a cafe and bar, and create ten new jobs in the area. “The Arcade Warehouse will have the capacity to host parties and be available for private hire,” added Lincolnshire Live. “There has already been a lot of interest in the venue, and they are already taking bookings for when they open.”
