hey, i'm opening an arcade bar!!!

by aaron Sun Sep 28, 2014 10:02 am

hey everyone, if you get a moment, please take the time to check out this project i'm involved in. we are trying to open indianapolis' first arcade bar, with a focus on craft beer and arcade games on free play. we launched an indiegogo campaign last night and so far it's been going pretty well, the response in indy has been pretty overwhelming and encouraging. i'm pouring my heart and soul (and time and money) into making this a success, and any amount of support you can provide means the world to me, seriously.

we have some great perks available for contributors, including personalized bar stools, a pint glass club that will get you $1 off every beer for LIFE, and we'll even purchase an arcade game or pinball machine for the bar and put your name on it, making it a permanent fixture in the bar.

let me know if you've got any questions or anything! i appreciate your consideration :)

What square footage are you looking to obtain?

Will you be near any college campuses or sports venues?

How many people will you staff?

How will go about insuring your cabs?

On free play?! That's fantastic.

We should take up a collection here so we can jointly submit for a Racketboy table, then demand that no one else sit at it while we're having a meet-up.

Nice Petunia, by the way. That made me smile.

We have one that opened here just over a year ago. It has over 150 of the classic arcade games. They serve beer and sandwiches. Its a great place to go to with the guys and re-live the golden age of arcades. They also have a high score leader board both in the arcade and online for every game. They seemed to be doing fairly well. Here's a link to their website, it might give you some ideas. Best of luck!

So that's why you were hoarding cabs. Hope it works out. :)
