Leading arcade bar brand NQ64 opened its latest venue in Glasgow last weekend, with the “neon splattered gaming and drinking den” on Merchant Square welcoming guests from 18 March.
Featuring arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Time Crisis, and Point Blank, as well as two studios hosting Dance Stage and Guitar Hero, the new venue will become NQ64’s seventh UK location.
“We are currently making the last push to get the venue and games ready for our first guests this weekend,” NQ64 founder Matt Robson told Glasgow Live. “We’re lovers of retro gaming and booze, and we hope you’ll be pleased by what’s on offer.”
“We’ve sourced some amazing games from across the globe and our drinks are no afterthought either. Join us for a drink and have a laugh at your mates stacking it on the Dance Mat or getting hammered at Street Fighter!”
As well as the retro gaming wall, customers will be able to play Gamecube, MegaDrive, PlayStation and SNES consoles, alongside a selection of themed pinballs.
Tokens for play are available to purchase from the bar, which serves local craft beers and cocktails in surroundings “straight out a futuristic movie set.”
“Our artist team have spent hours with their spray paint creating artwork that covers the walls, ceiling and even seating in the NQ64 signature street style that glows under UV lights.”
“As you venture down into the neon splattered gaming and drinking den, you enter an immersive adult playground that’s complete with a dystopian urban environment that’s hard to forget.”
