Stereo Arcade, JBR
Game on. A lull in music or conversation won’t mar a night at Stereo Arcade. That’s simply when it’s time to go to battle on one of the dozen, free, old-school gaming machines, featuring classics like Pac Man and Street Fighter.
The bar. Start your night in the pub to the right of the central arcade. Here you’ll find dark wood, brick walls and a soundtrack of 80s and 90s tunes from the resident bands.
The club. Turn left into a time warp, where DJs fill the floor with happy faces, all partying like it’s 1999. Sound and lighting is noticeably state-of-the-art, and, thankfully, there’s nothing overly tacky about this themed spot.
Don’t wear your Wonder Woman outfit. Everything’s relaxed at Stereo Arcade, from the hot dog stand to the dress code. But it’s still worthy of a stop-off for a dance, even when you’re not in the mood for <Donkey Kong>.
