There’s no better way for a 90s kid to reminisce about the good old days than by smashing away at an old school controller on one of your favorite classic games; sipping on an adult beverage is a bonus —you know, to remind yourself that you are indeed a legal adult now. Orlando has some topnotch gaming bars to check out, and this week, you can return to one of your favorites. Player 1 Video Game Bar reopened this past Sunday, and you can check them out all week with limited hours.
Like most places tentatively reopening their doors at this time, there will be some adjustments to how Player 1 operates.
Their Facebook post states that their new safety guidelines include sanitation towels for patrons to use to keep the arcade cabinets clean, as well as the use of masks, which are encouraged but not mandatory.
Player 1 also encourages guests to BYOC—bring your own controller! While their console lounge will be open, bringing your own controller recommended, just make sure you check it in at the front desk first.
Their current hours are from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. They will also be operating at limited capacity, so make sure you get there early!
Their Facebook page also states that until the Orange County curfew is lifted, they will remain a 21+ bar from open to close.
With tons of classic arcade games, consoles of all kind, and craft brews to sip on while you game, you’ll never be bored at this sweet throwback spot.
Challenge your friends and relive your favorite video games at Player 1 this week!
