NQ64 Cardiff


With its beginnings in a basement in Manchester's Northern Quarter, NQ64 has quickly found its feet, managing to open seven new bars across the UK since 2019, quickly opening in Cardiff.

NQ64 has placed itself firmly as THE retro arcade bar to visit, with the venue boasting a bar stocked with loads of great beers (craft and local are their speciality), wines, spirits and a cocktail menu that draws inspiration from their favourite old school classic arcades and consoles. Fancy something long and fruity? The Crash Bandicoot-inspired Aku Aku Fruit Punch is the drink for you, with a house rum mix, peach, banana, apple and Refresher bar flavour syrup. More of a short drink fan? The Dr Ro Bev Nik is served on the rocks with a blend of Jack Daniels, cherry and Dr Pepper Syrup. 

Each bar is full of arcade machines such as Time Crisis, Guitar Hero, Dancing Stage, Pacman, Street Fighter and plenty of other classics, as well as retro consoles like MegaDrive, original PlayStations, Super Nintendo. 

NQ64's decor is dark and immersive with neon-splattered graffiti all over the walls, perfect for grabbing that perfect Instagram shot while button bashing to victory against your mates.

The bar is open til late every night, we hire booths for smaller groups and private hire is available via DesignMyNight.
