It makes total sense, we almost can’t believe we’ve never heard of one before: a video game arcade with a bar!
Welcome to Arcade Jozi, where you can play classic retro video games in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere, with ’80s and ’90s hip hop as your backtrack – it’s a such a fun way to wind down after a hard office day!
Ten custom-made arcade machines fill the space, allowing plenty of opportunity for everyone to enjoy the free games: PacMan, Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat and Bubble Bobble are all back, along with many more old favourites. You can compete for the top spot on the leaderboard, and enjoy free WiFi in between rounds.
A classic American bar menu with delicious dishes, such as corn dogs, chicken fried waffles, sticky chicken wings, deep-fried mac and cheese bites, the now famous pulled-pork sandwiches – and a great variety of vegetarian bar food exclusive to Arcade Jozi, will be on offer from Taylor’s Good Food.
Arcade Jozi – Drink. Play. Repeat!
