Born from a love of classic video games, cocktails 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 with a quiet drink or friends looking for a big night out – we have got you covered.
Our atmosphere is always welcoming and laid back whilst our aesthetic is un-apologetically geek chic (our feature wall is made up of 500 real VHS cassette cases).
The bar and arcade is spread across two floors featuring three areas each with their own unique vibe. Hang in our dive arcade or play Street Fighter 2 in the Japanese back alleyway or maybe take a trip upstairs to our 70’s lounge style bar.
YOU CAN FIND US IN VIBRANT NEWTOWN IN SYDNEY’S INNER WEST. WE ARE AT THE CITY END OF KING STREET NEXT TO QUEEN STREET.
Closest train stations are Macdonald Town (5 minute walk) or Newtown (10 minute walk). There are bus stops outside 1989 and Central station is about a 5-10 minute ride away. Taxi’s pass along King St frequently.
