Things to Do
Things to do at Arcade 92:
When your friends ask, “Whatcha want to do tonight?”, the answer is now, “Go to Arcade 92.” Hungry, we gotcha covered…Bored, we gotcha covered…Thirsty, we gotcha covered!
For our Retro gamers: Arcade 92 has lots of arcades from the 70s and 80s, and every machines is authentic. No multicades or cheap knock offs, these are the real deal. We have games like PacMan, Galaga, Asteroids, and others from back in an era of 8 bit and vector graphics when things were simpler with a joystick and 1 or 2 buttons. Retro gamers will find the perfect place to escape the daily grind and get back to the old school roots back from the first golden age of the arcades.
For our 90s gamers: Starting in 1992, a new golden age for arcades started with the launch of games such as Mortal Kombat, Street fighter 2, NBA Jam, The Simpsons and many more. We have these and many more for our 90s kids. In this second golden age, arcades saw the rapid expansion of 2 to 6 player competitive and cooperative gaming. Mortal Kombat, Tekken, and Street Fighter are great platforms for you to whoop up on your friends. But don’t ruin that relationship because you will need a few of your friends to help you defeat the villains on The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or Rampage. Pick your best friend and your B list friends and go head-to-head with 4-player NBA Jam or NFL Blitz. It’s time to put on your Doc Martens and get to Arcade 92.
I’m not a gamer, but I like a good bar: It’s okay, we won’t hold it against you. We welcome non-gamers at Arcade 92. Hey we get it, your significant other or friend keeps inviting you to play video games and you’re just not feeling it. That’s fine! You can hang out at our bar, and let one of our expert bartenders whip up one of our amazing signature drinks you won’t find anywhere else. You may notice we have some retro console controllers sitting there waiting for you at the bar. We won’t force you to play, but when you play a level or two of Super Mario Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog or Legend of Zelda, we might make a gamer out of you yet.
For those that get hungry: As Pac-Man once said, “Nom, nom, nom, nom”! Such a wise one, that Pac-man. You can’t own your friends on Street Fighter or Qbert if you are hungry. Ask our bartenders for a menu, and you will find lots of delicious eats to satisfy your hunger. Not hungry? That’s okay too. How about dessert? There’s always room for dessert! Not only do we have a great food selection, we also have sweet options to keep you sharp all night!
For our eSports gamers: Arcade 92 is a place with lots of noise, flashy lights and so much stimulation to take in as you explore the gaming industry from the late 70s, 80s and 90s. But maybe that’s not for you. Maybe you prefer the modern comforts of Nintendo Switch or Playstation 4. In our modern gaming lounge, you can tune out the world with your own headset, TV, controller and system. We will have all the greatest hits such as Fortnite, Super Smash Brothers, Apex Legends, Call of Duty and many more! The pricing for our modern eSports gaming includes your first hour complimentary with your arcade admission and $8 for additional hours. Ask us about our specials for pre-purchased hours and how to get your private eSports gaming lounge for as little as $5 per hour.
For those who like to hit a ball: No I don’t mean baseball. I mean Pinball. We have lots of pinball games for you to enjoy. From 90s themed Terminator 2 Judgement day, Austin Powers, to modern arcades such as Total Nuclear Annihilation and some oldies but goodies like Attack from Mars. Be on the lookout for our pinball tournaments, and be ready to take on your friends and strangers to see who can better handle the balls of steel!
For those who like new and fancy stuff: We get it, the retro isn’t for everyone. Sure at Arcade 92, we have an odd attraction to cleaning and repairing old arcade games that have gum from 1984 stuck to the bottom of them, but maybe new and sparkly clean is more your style. We present to you…Killer Queen and Cosmotrons. These babies were made in the 10s! That is right! Made in 2017, Killer Queen is a 10 player game, and is a must for those who enjoy new stuff and cooperative/competitive play. Cosmotrons is our newest arcade, made is 2019, and it is a 4 player, competitive/cooperative game that is sure to forge and possibly wreck some friendships. Arcade 92 intends to embrace the old retro but also to always be looking forward for the latest and greatest!
When your significant other asks that dreaded question, “what do you want to do tonight?”, Hallelujah, you already have your answer. Arcade 92 is your answer! What better way to say I love and cherish you than by crushing their high score at Pacman or Qbert. Nothing says you are the light of my life more than when you hear those words “Finish him!”. With great food and a full service bar including craft beer, cocktails and wine, Arcade 92 truly is the place for yours truly. See what I did there?
Okay so I’d like to say…everyone is welcome, but don’t be a hater. Hate the game not the player. No wait…..don’t hate either. Just don’t be a hater okay!
For those who are just tired of adulting:
Arcade 92 exists to create a community environment for gamers and non-gamers alike. If you just need an escape from the daily grind to get away from all those adulting responsibilities, come to Arcade 92 and just feel all that melt away. The electric bill can wait until tomorrow, and Becky from the water cooler can shove it. We can’t forget to make time to play, and its work to maintain a good work-life balance. Arcade 92. It’s time to play again.
