Bar with 600+ retro video games launches in Liverpool
A new bar offering access to hundreds of retro video games has launched in Liverpool.
Cellar 24, located on Wood Street in the city’s Ropewalks area, will create up to 30 full- and part-time jobs
It occupies the basement premises formerly home to Djangos Riff and has space for 150 guests.
In addition to its games bar with more than 600 retro titles, Cellar 24 features pool tables, beer pong and live music.
Local artist Paul Curtis produced aerial view paintings of the city centre for the bar’s interiors.
Cellar 24’s owner and general manager, Kevin Midgley, said: “We have many unique selling points. The retro games bar is completely new to Liverpool and we also have six pint beer towers, which you can’t get anywhere else currently.
“With all the work going on in the Ropewalks, we wanted to be part of this area of the city. Our offering is also something popular with the student and music crowd and this part of town is perfect for that.”
He continued: “We have been looking to roll this idea out for some time. It was all about the location for us.
“There is something very different about basement venues that offer you a calm oasis away from the city noise and we feel we have achieved this here. Customers can also design their own gin, choosing a gin brand, tonic and garnish to finish, which again is something a little different.”
Cellar 24 is open from Wednesday to Sunday.
