Things To Do In Las Vegas

You won’t want to leave.

Emporium Arcade Bar is the ultimate chillout space for adults. It’s located inside AREA 15, an entertainment complex that houses a plethora of creative spaces and experiences, and Emporium fits right in!

This isn’t your average arcade space. Part arcade, part bar, part event space, Emporium is the perfect trifecta to disconnect after work and hang out with friends. The space spans 10,000 square feet across two floors full of all the entertainment you could ever need. Whatever your game, Emporium has it: arcade classics, pinball, pool, foosball, air hockey, skeeball, shuffleboard and indie games.

Plus, did we mention it’s 21 and over? Emporium’s two bars are fully stocked with tasty libations to celebrate your winning streaks. The menu has a range of signature and classic cocktails, and the beer list has a major focus on local and regional craft brews.

As for the ambiance, Emporium is an absolute trip. It takes the arcade vibe to a whole new level, with awesome murals covering every square inch of the walls. In fact, most of the artwork was created by local artists, including students, graduates and professors from UNLV, as well as a host of other talented Las Vegas artists.

It comes as no surprise that Emporium also hosts all kinds of awesome events with live music and DJs, with such an eye-catching space! As an added bonus, there is no cover charge and it’s open daily. Due to capacity limitations, however, you will have to reserve a (free) ticket to enter AREA 15.

Game on!
