Some of weren’t around in the ’80s, but that doesn’t stop us from the feeling of vivid nostalgia we have for new wave hits, technicolored-patterned jumpers, and all the zaniness the decade had to offer. This season, Dallasites can blast back to the ’80s at the new FlashBack RetroPub in Bishops Arts District!
The 1980s are making a come back. Be it the nostalgia-saturated Stranger Things, kaleidoscopic fashion lines, or droves of new wave, synth-driven music flooding the sound waves. Embrace the return of all things ’80s at FlashBack RetroPub:
“From the high school lockers turned liquor cabinet, to the rubiks cube tables and the lite brite directional signs,” the pub writes on its website, “you’ll be wondering if you accidentally drove a DeLorean back in time to get here.”
Inaugurated in OKC back in 2015, FlashBack RetroPub is a boozy arcade with an affinity for bright colors and big hair. Recently, the pub opened their second location here in Dallas to get their game on.
Beset in graffitied brick walls, FlashBack features a whirring variety of 100 arcade games. All free to play, their gaming selection also includes arcade staples such as pinball and skeeball, as well as vintage consoles ranging from Nintendo 64 to Sega Genesis.
While gaming, patrons can confer with the bar’s massive list of over 100 local craft beers, as well as ’80-inspired Signature Cocktails.
FlashBack BrewPub is now open at 821 W Davis Street from 5 pm to midnight Monday through Thursday; 5 pm – 2 am on Fridays; 2 pm – 2 am on Saturdays; and 2 pm – midnight on Sundays.
