    This place was great and every city should have one. The drinks were fantastic, the activities were fun, and whatever kind of gaming you like they had it! I love my retro games. Playing pacman and tetris was awesome and what really made it was the cocktails with gaming themes. 100% recommend.

    GET READY TO LEVEL UP YOUR GAMING EXPERIENCE! Great bar with retro gaming ideal for a date night or a group of friends. Really enjoyed the cocktails. NQ64 Arcade Bars have 6 new cocktails and they're the perfect way to fuel your button-mashing and high scores no matter your age! I tried the following 4 and then lost myself to playing Pac-man. 🍨Amy's Delight - imagine Angels Delight with vodka, raspberry, amaretto and strawberry 🍓 milkshake 🍍 Full Tilt - a fruity fizzy cocktail with Tequila, grapefruit, Pineapple and sherbet 🐢 Cowa Bunga - a glowing green gin, apple, kiwi 🥝 and dry Vermouth 🐒 Hits from the Pong - mocktail with raspberry, guava, kiwi 🥝, lime and CBD My favourite was the Full Tilt. Well balanced cocktail that felt like a fruit juice!

    Game Over! The music and overall vibe of the place is electric. Cocktails are creative and taste great. Although bit on the expensive side as with the rest of the alcohol. You spend alot of time asking the staff to fish out your coins from the machines as they swallow your coins. A large amount of the machines had issues that rendered them unplayable. Which makes the place a bit frustrating and disappointing.
