Arcade Social Christmas Party: Choose Your Retro Realm!

This festive season, experience a neon-blast from the past at Arcade Social. Based in two of London’s most vibrant locations, Soho and Shoreditch, our venues promise an electric fusion of retro games, classic cocktails, and an ambience you won’t forget.

Timeless Drinks, Timeless Games
Sip on game-inspired cocktails or relish our craft beers as you journey through our vast collection of arcades and consoles. Whether it’s the competitive thrill of 6-player brawls or the nostalgia of Pac Man, we’ve got something for every gamer.

Soho or Shoreditch: Where Will Your Party Shine?
Each of our venues boasts unique features, but both promise an unrivalled retro gaming experience:

NQ64 Soho Christmas Party Venue: Intimate yet vibrant, our Soho location can host up to 350 standing guests. Dive deep into the Crash Bandicoot-inspired Aku Aku Fruit Punch or challenge your pals to a session on the original PlayStation. A setting that’s dark, neon-lit, and always Instagram-ready.
NQ64 Shoreditch Christmas Party Venue: Our flagship Shoreditch spot welcomes a larger crowd with a capacity for 450 standing guests. Slide (literally!) into the party or conquer the 4-player Mario Kart. Here, the decor is eclectic, and the vibe unmistakably NQ64.
For The Hungry Gamer Mid-battle munchies? Choose from crisps, sweets, or the iconic Pot Noodle. Want something more filling? We collaborate with trusted external suppliers to deliver a more hearty feast.

Make It Private, Semi-private, or Social
Whether it’s a cosy gathering or a grand bash, Arcade Social caters to every group size. Opt for private venue hire, book larger group areas, or reserve a table. Both locations guarantee an unparalleled experience.

So, this Christmas, where will your retro adventure begin? Soho’s neon-lit streets or Shoreditch’s eclectic corners? Book your spot at Arcade Social, and let the games begin!

    Retro gaming bar, lots to do, drinks prices more than reasonable for the area and late open! Decor is right up my alley and it's become a firm favourite watering hole in my social circles. Burgerism are the in-house munchy providers - great burgers and sides (although their awesome wings were on hiatus in August, not sure if they are back) also at reasonable prices for the area. While you can buy tokens (£9 for 15 at time of writing) for the coin-op arcade cabinets, they have retro consoles dotted around that are freeplay (PSOne, PS2, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, SNES, N64, XBox) with a wide selection of games via memory expanders. Genuinely love this place :)

    A really cool place to visit especially if you love games and you are looking for a mix of activity and food. Had a lot of fun reminiscing with the different games available and I also loved the burger I got from Burgerism that’s in the entry area. I would 100% recommend checking them out.

    Fantastic atmosphere for a drink, but also a great range of games. Classics like 4 player Mario Kart, hard to find stuff like Top Skater & Killer Instinct, then you have ultra rare titles like Dance Dance Revolution Supernova 2 (the only one in the country??). Shoreditch needed an arcade hangout like this for a long time.

    Amazing staff and SO MANY different games to play. As someone who’s not that good at games I still had so much fun. The food however….super slow service. Very tasty though. But still maybe eat before if you don’t want to wait that long. Drinks in the bar are great!

    Such a fun place! If you’re looking for something different to do on a night out this is definitely it! Great environment, great decoration, great arcade games… The drinks are also good (they have non alcoholic options as well). It does make me feel a bit nostalgic in a good way.
