If you love sports and the ’80s and ’90s, get ready to head downtown.

Despite promises it was a temporary situation, video game arcade and bar Insert Coin(s) was evicted last year from their prominent four-year-old base on Fremont East. That void will now be filled by Rod and Bruce Perdew, who are importing some Hollywood nightlife to the downtown scene, with a yet-to-be named, "quality bar."

The 6,474-square-foot main room will double duty as as a "trendy" sports bar and lounge during the day and nightclub after 10 p.m. Open daily from the start of the first game of the day, large projection screens and "70-80 inch" TVs will broadcast all the highlights. Little construction work is planned for the open plan space, designed with a 1,160-square-foot dance floor at the back of the room and keeping the center, rectangular bar.

After 10 p.m., Bruce Perdew will be behind each genre-themed night, featuring Perdew's signature programming of audience friendly "’80s & ’90s, Top 40, Indie & Electronic Dance Music" sounds. The DJ and promoter has been behind such Los Angeles ventures as ’80s-skewed Blue Mondays, Gothic-themed Helter Skelter and mixing full nights of Britney Spears tunes.

A 500-square-foot patio right on Fremont will also be added. The final name and a schedule for opening night has yet to be revealed.
