A NEW retro arcade bar will open its doors in Glasgow this weekend.

NQ64 is officially opening in Merchant Square on Friday, March 18.

The bar will be rewarding the first 50 people into the bar, on both Friday and Saturday night from 7pm, with a gift bag packed full of NQ64 merch and goodies.

Straight out a futuristic movie set, the new late-night basement venue is awash with neon and UV graffiti at every turn. 

NQ64’s artist team created spray paint artwork that covers the walls, ceiling and even seating in the NQ64 signature street style that glows under UV lights.

The bar features an immersive adult playground complete with a “dystopian urban environment”. 

The main gaming floor has a lineup of retro arcades including Pac-Man, Time Crisis, and Point Blank ready for action, besides two stand out snug studios containing Dance Stage and Guitar Hero.  

Guests can take a break from gaming to enjoy the bar, which, besides craft and local beers, serves game-inspired cocktails and snacks. 

On their retro gaming wall, you’ll find all the classic consoles of your childhood including SNES, MegaDrive, Gamecube and PlayStation waiting for you to have a nostalgic button-bashing go.
