Retro-arcade bar concept NQ64 to make Scottish debut


Immersive retro-arcade bar concept NQ64 founded by Matt Robson and Andy Haygarth will make its Scottish debut this summer when it opens in the former Badabing bar on Edinburgh’s Lothian Road.

The concept is described as an ‘underground drinking den filled with retro arcade games and classic consoles.’ and it currently operates sites in Manchester (pictured), Liverpool and Birmingham.

Imbiba  – a specialist investor in the UK leisure and hospitality market – invested £1.4m in NQ64 to aid its further growth plans and as part of the investment, David McDowall, chief operating officer at BrewDog, became its new chairman, with Andrew Stones, ex-managing director of Be At One, representing Imbiba on the company’s board.

NQ64 is also set to open a site in Newcastle and a second bar in Manchester after securing the former Club Liv unit in Peter Street.
