Arcade Bar in Edinburgh

Whether you’re veteran gamer or just trying them for the first time, NQ64 is perfect for playing with some mates and getting a little tipsy! With their extensive list of retro machines there’s something for everyone. You’ll be jumping from Pac-man to MarioKart to Time Crisis all while trying their great range of original cocktails and craft beers.

Where can I find a unique bar in Edinburgh?

Edinburgh is littered with cool and unique bars but, NQ64 is one of our favourites! With loads of retro arcade machines, vintage consoles, and great booze NQ64 is a must-visit as part of a night out in the city.

The neon sprayed room and flashing arcade machines turn this into a gaming heaven and you’ll be trying to beat your friends high-scores all night long. A great place to spend an evening in the city. Perfect for couples, friends and small parties. No booking needed so just walk in. What are you waiting for!

Also all their machines use tokens so no need to bring loads of coins to play either.

If you’re looking for a weekend away, there’s no where better than Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh. Whether you’re looking to head out of the arcade after having a couple of drinks and partaking in the nightlife, or you’re looking to explore the city during the day, there’s always something to do in Edinburgh.
