Revealed last June and originally advertised as arriving by the end of 2018, Orlando, Florida’s Player 1 Video Game Bar is back on track for a summer expansion to the eastside.
Planned as a 24-hour mecca for cosplayers, video game players from all eras and fans of craft beer, the bar is located at the Sunrise City Plaza retail center, close to the intersection of Maryland Parkway and Karen Avenue, and south of the Commercial Center District.
Currently waiting for a liquor license, the operators have shared, “we have finished all major construction, and passed all of our building inspections thus far.”
The Florida original opened in 2013 as an adults-only venue serving a menu of 150 bottled beers, 50 choices on draft, plus more than 40 ciders and 15 different meads.
The Las Vegas version is currently promising classic arcade machines including Millipede, Baby Pac-Man and Donkey Kong Jr., “Atari, NES, N64, PSX, PS4” gaming systems, pinball, cocktails, and a stand-alone bar.
