The long awaited 1985 Arcade Bar + Grill surprised many people tonight when they announced they were going to open Wednesday.
The retro arcade bar for the 21 and older crowd is located at 1021 W Maple in the former Burn Out Bar & Grill space. When news first came out about 1985, the plan was to start with 25 arcade games and 14 pinball games. You can’t miss the building at Maple and Seneca, there’s a huge mural featuring Marty McFly and Doc from ‘Back to the Future’ on the side of the building.
At the moment, only the bar and arcade portion will be open. The restaurant side will be open at a later undetermined date. They will also be cash only. No cards will be accepted, nor will there be an ATM available.
