Arcades were huge in the 1980s. It was the place for kids and teenagers to hang out and be entertained for hours on end. Fast forward to 2019 and you'll notice that things have changed a bit. Of course, there's an arcade here and there but the trend right now is to play your favourite arcade game while sipping your favourite alcoholic drink - more geared towards grown-ups. Arcade bars are a concept that's hip and upcoming.
At these Arcade bars, you can look forward to playing classic arcade games like Pac-man, Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat and many others. You can also look forward to a game of air hockey and pinball.
The Beginning and End of Arcade Games
While it started in 1978 with the launch of Space Invaders and had its golden years throughout the 80s, popularity decreased when game consoles took over the gaming industry. The once relentless game arcades quickly died out after that.
It is only now that the game arcades we once knew have been reincarnated in the form of modern arcade bars. Their primary target - people who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s. Those who have fond memories of spending endless amounts of time in them during their childhood.
Opening an Arcade Bar of Your Own
There's no fixed description for arcade bars and they aren't necessarily for adults exclusively. You can allow children during daytime and even host children's birthday parties if you please. The sky's the limit - all you need to do is to find a good deal on arcade game machines and you're halfway there.
Open up your own Arcade Bar and tap into the nostalgia that currently exists for classic arcade games. For more information on Arcade game machines for sale, get in touch with the team at Home of Arcadia today!
