NQ64, the immersive retro-arcade bar concept will make its Scottish debut on Thursday, 12 August in the former Badabing bar on Edinburgh’s Lothian Road. The company was founded by Matt Robson and Andy Haygarth and currently operates sites in Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham.
It has been transformed into a neon splattered ‘drinking den’, with UV graffiti designs on the walls, floor and ceiling. It will be home to a large selection of retro arcade machines including a Guitar Hero sound-proofed studio and classic consoles.
They’ll be serving up a range of game-themed cocktails such as the prosecco based Princess Peach, the Blanka with Tequila and melon and Mad Max with rum, absinthe and fire. A selection of packaged beers will be available including a some from Edinburgh based breweries Pilot Brewing and Campervan Brewery, and ‘retro’ crisps.
