Time Out says

Press start to play at the city's retro arcade bar and discotheque. Since June 2018, the neon-lit tunnel entrance of Nineteen80 has transported party owls to throwback tunes, vintage interiors and magical cocktails that quench your thirst for nostalgia. And now, things are about to get bigger and bolder as the nightlife hot spot is expanding its sweet digs from one single unit to span across four units, taking over the former space of Kilo Lounge this March.

To celebrate this exciting upsize, Nineteen80 is hosting a relaunch bash during the weekend of March 19 to 21, complete with a refreshed cocktail menu, more arcade machines, and plenty of space to get down to retro hits from the 80s to 00s. Keep your eyes peeled for new Instagram-worthy backdrops too – think playful details like the classic 80s Memphis and retro synth-wave designs.

The expansion will also feature additional players to the boozy menu in the coming weeks. But for now, choose your poison – from OG classics like vodka Ribena to funky remixes like the signature Blue Lagoon with a yuzu finish. Once powered up, flex those fingers and challenge a mate to a game of PacMan, Space Invaders, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.

If that's not enough, check out sister arcade bar Pinball Wizard for – as it says on the tin – pinball machines. A Phat Cat Collective, the brains behind both concept bars, have also revealed plans for a spankin' new nightlife concept dedicated to underground dance music. It's slated to open in April 2020. More details to be announced soon.
