Step back into the classic arcade.
With 15 arcade classics on the floor, from Space Invaders to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ’89 is a retro gaming utopia and fantastic place to eat & drink.
Our atmosphere is always welcoming & laid back whilst our aesthetic is nu-apologetically geek chic (our feature wall is made up of 500 real VHS cassette cases).
Born from a love of classic video games and craft beer, you will find plenty to do at ’89. From the serious or casual gamer to those who want to relax in a unique venue or friends looking for a big night out – We have got you covered at ’89.

Classic Arcade Games

KEEPING THE CLASSIC ARCADE ALIVE
The arcade cabinet collection at ’89 is a curated selection of absolute classics from the 80’s & 90’s which have been lovingly restored and maintained. All arcades are a $1 to play (except for Ghosts’ n Goblins which is on free play and Space Invaders which is 20c) credits vary per game. We also have three classic consoles free to play along with a large selection of board games.
