Retro Arcade in Glasgow

R-CADE opened to the public in January 2018 with only a handful of games and a truckload of ideas. They gave everyone the opportunity to play classic video games the way they were meant to be played: on original hardware with authentic old-school televisions. Simultaneously, wanted to bring back local multiplayer video game experiences to the people, as internet gaming had taken over the younger generation.

Why should I visit R-CADE?

R-CADE's arcade passes are for one hour of gaming in R-CADE. This means that throughout your booking you can play as many different consoles and games as you like, you are not tied to a single machine.

From the beginning, their goal has been to provide a fun, secure, and inclusive environment for lovers of all things vintage to hang out, meet new friends, and interact with one another.

If you feel like you are getting out of touch with your younger side, you may want to show up at R-CADE. There is nothing like enjoying a couple of hours of video game fun to bring back all the memories and excitement of time spent in your childhood arcade.

You undoubtedly grew up playing arcade video games if you grew up in the 1980s. Pac-Man and Space Invaders most likely evoke wonderful recollections of adrenaline-fueled hours spent attempting to beat your favourite game and scrounging for quarters so you could play a little longer. Even while arcade games are prevalent in many adults’ childhood memories, they are not solely for children to enjoy. Arcade games for adults, in reality, provide the same electrifying excitement as they did when you were a youngster.


  • Individual passes range from £6 – £8 per person
  • Arrive as close as possible to your allocated booking time
  • Private parties cost £95 for up to 15 players
  • Located on the west coast of Scotland
  • Must be 18+
