Drink Booze And Play Retro Arcade Games At This Sydney Bar

If you grew up saving your twenty cent pieces to play the latest arcade games at your local milk bar, have we found the bar for you!

1989 Arcade Bar & Kitchen in Newtown has a whole heap of retro arcade games that you probably haven't played in years, AND you can play them while enjoying a cocktail or beer and maybe even have a bite to eat as well!

The bar is decked out with a cool feature wall made out of old VHS video covers and has some nice touches with one area decked out like an old comfy living room complete with couches and SEGA gaming console hooked up to an old school TV.

1989 regularly hosts nights where you can compete on various games and have your name and score immortalized on their score board!


As well as your choice of playing original arcade games like Street Fighter, The Simpsons and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, there is also a huge range of classic board games you can play including Connect Four, Guess Who and Trivial Pursuit!

1989 has a wide range of wines and beer and cocktails, including the yummy house special "The ‘89 Espresso Martini" made with kahlua, vodka, vanilla syrup, & a shot of freshly ground Little Marionette coffee!

The kitchen is open from 5pm daily and includes tasty starters like their spicy smokey buffalo wings and mains including a big range of burgers all served with delicious crinkle cut chips!
