Arcade bar NQ64 has launched its biggest site to date and the first of its 10 locations to offer food. Here are some pictures to show you what to expect there.

NQ64 Shoreditch is located on east London’s Old Street and is 9,000sq ft “neon-splattered drinking den”, which has more than 50 nostalgic and classic arcade games machines and consoles, including Pac-Man, Mario Kart, Guitar Hero, Time Crisis and Point Blank, with SNES, MegaDrive, Gamecube, Xbox and PlayStation on the console line-up.

The brand has expanded across the UK with two sites in Manchester and others in Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, Soho, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle.

Burgerism providing food

NQ64, which is set to open a site in Bristol next, has teamed up with Manchester food business Burgerism to offer a menu of smashed patty and fried chicken burgers, chicken wings and skin-on fries.

The new site follows the brand’s signature neon graffiti decor and features its menu of game-themed cocktails, such as the Power Star Martini, Lake Springfield and Kong Island Iced Tea. Plus there are plenty of beers to choose from too.

The new bar’s stand-out feature is its slide entrance that transports guests from the ground floor into the basement below.

Buzzing to open site

Matt Robson, who founded NQ64 with Andy Haygarth in 2019, said, “We’re buzzing to open our much-anticipated Shoreditch location.

“The team has worked hard to make sure this is a cool space for drinking and eating, as well as playing retro arcades and consoles.

“As our biggest site to date, we’re excited to be able to bring Manchester legends, Burgerism, with us to keep our guests fuelled up for late-night partying and gaming. We hope the people of east London love this venue as much as we do.”

The first 50 people through the door on the site’s opening day on Friday (9 June) received an exclusive NQ64 goody bag, filled with merchandise.
