One of the things we seem to get MOST jealous about is a huge influx of Arcade come Bars opening up all over the world – Arcade Punk are not haters and wish every owner every success, we so desperately want to do this ourselves – and more than likely will.
We present you COBRA ARCADE BAR, a fantastic all out barcade. The owners seem to actually know something about arcade machines, including repairing and restoring them, infact looking through their Facebook page they have restored some of the machines themselves.
“There are a lot of different people involved with running this place,” Bracamonte says. “I’m handling the games and all the art while they’re taking care of the bar.”
Both the bar and the arcade at Cobra got a trial run on during a soft opening Tuesday night attended by “friends and family” as well as anyone in the know. And despite being on the down-low, the turnout for the event was substantial and — by all accounts — a smashing success.
The bar currently boosts 40 playable arcade games which they hope to rotate on a frequent basis, the current games are :-
Ivan “Ironman” Stewart’s Super Off Road
Mortal Kombat II
Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
Track ‘n’ Field
We wish them all the best with this fantastic looking place!
