Flinging open its doors on 7 January, and “crawling out from below the surface of Fortitude Valley”, the team behind Netherworld are ready to show Brisbanites how to have a vintage good time.
The bar, by the team that brought you The Scratch, has a unique selling point: it hosts almost 40 vintage arcade and pinball machines, 100 board games and a selection of classic consoles.
The heritage corner bar also serves a large offering of draft beer, cider, housemade soda, ‘loaded soda’, wine, spirits and cocktails.
The ‘Hellmouth Diner’ melds playful and mindful eating, boasting big flavours of the best of the American and Japanese food worlds.
Some of the games include: Ghostbusters, Twilight Zone and Addams Family pinballs; classic arcades like NBA Jam, Street Fighter II, Terminator 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Donkey Kong, Pacman, Space Invaders, Galaga, and Frogger; and a few consoles for good measure including SNES, Mega Drive, N64, Master System, and Atari.
Netherworld – 186 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley on the corner of St Paul’s Tce.
Operating Tuesday to Sunday from midday until late.
