What we are

Playback arcade is a freeplay arcade run and owned by enthusiastic long-term gamers and friends, Mark and Nick. We love retro games and want to share what we love with as many people as possible, and so have set all our games to freeplay for unlimited plays, with just a one off admission fee.
 

Over 40 arcade machines, 15 consoles on CRTs, 3 pinball machines and over 100 board games.

We have a fantastic selection of retro games available. For example House of the Dead, Scud Race, Area 51, Space Invaders, Initial D, Pac-Man, Crazy Taxi and Dance Dance Revolution (Euromix + Supernova). Look at the 'List of games' page for a fuller list.

Just added: Mario Kart GP + Cart Fury Championship Racing!

We're open at the bottom floor of The Galleries, Broadmead, Bristol. Just across from Boswells cafe.
