Ah, the 1980s. Whether you were born in the 80s, grew up in the 80s, or never set foot in that infamous decade, hearing the term “1980s” probably makes you think of something.

It was the era of MTV, from which you (or your parents) watched music videos of the likes of Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, Wham and Barbra Streisand on repeat.

Fashion was weird, colour combinations were the worst, music was over-digitised and commercialism consumed everyone.

Paying homage to the 80s, this arcade bar takes you back to the glory days. It’s throwback everyday at Nineteen80 – the latest bar to celebrate nostalgia with old school arcade games, 80s hits and neon-heavy backdrops.

That’s not it.

Strike your best pose and take a selfie amongst the many murals with 80s pop culture references like Bruce Lee and the iconic “1-177155-4” pager code (it spells out “I-MISS-U” on the pager if you didn’t know!).
