There’s An Arcade Bar In New Mexico And It Will Take You Back In Time
The ‘80s are enjoying a nostalgic surge in pop culture right now. While we may not be seeing shoulder pads, Zubaz pants, and poofy everything re-enter the mainstream anytime soon, there’s been plenty to see on TV and in theaters to take you back to a totally radical time in American history.
If you’re aching to spend an evening in a retro-style arcade but with the elevation of a slightly more mature crowd, then you are going to absolutely love this arcade bar here in New Mexico.
In true ‘80s taste, this Las Cruces arcade is called Rad Retrocade and has an incredibly, well...
rad neon sign.
Step inside and you’ll find the retrocade is dark and filled with blazing, bright lights reminiscent of Tron and classic ‘80s laser backgrounds. Oh yeah, and tons of incredible video games!
The entire location has a strong retro vibe, including featuring murals lining the walls with ‘80s movie and video game characters...
...and it even extends into early ‘90s pop culture when that neon retro vibe still felt strong.
So, what kind of games will you find here? Some classics like Pac Man…
...rows of pinball machines lining the walls...
...and even a table version of Pong!
Aside from the games and retro vibe, the main draw to this spot is the full bar where you can order a local craft brew or some creative cocktails.
And it’s located right next to the games, so you don’t need to travel far.
When you get hungry, order up some tasty appetizers or meals, like tacos, burgers, and an impressive Hot Cheeto cheeseburger.
Rad Retrocade is located in downtown Las Cruces on Main Street and Las Cruces Avenue.
The arcade is open Monday through Friday from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m., on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight. You can find details about events, menu, and more by visiting their Facebook page (linked below).
