NQ64 Laser Quest is available to enjoy with up to groups of 16 players per game, focussing on the theme of an “alien invasion in a dystopian future”.

“The concept has been designed to offer guests a nostalgic adult-only experience in a bar environment,” the team behind NQ64 explain.

“Guests will be able to access the experience through NQ64 Birmingham, which will be closed from 4th to 8th February for a refurbishment which will add additional games to the already massive selection, extra seating, a photobooth, and a larger wrap around bar for guests to enjoy.

“The Laser Quest site will also offer a drinks list of specially selected craft beers, cocktails themed around alien invasion films, wines, spirits, and sodas.”

Founded in 2019 in Manchester by Andy Haygarth and Matt Robson, NQ64 is a neon graffiti-covered drinking den where guests can enjoy retro arcade games and classic consoles alongside a curated list of game-themed cocktails and craft beers, accompanied by a classic hip hop playlist.

NQ64’s sites are filled with nostalgic and classic arcades and consoles sourced from across the globe, including fan-favourites such as Pac-Man, Mario Kart, Guitar Hero, Time Crisis and Point Blank, with SNES, MegaDrive, Gamecube, Xbox and PlayStation on the console lineup.

Matt Robson, co-founder of NQ64 said, “We’ve loved trading in Birmingham since opening in 2020, and feel at home in Digbeth, but it’s time to give the venue an upgrade.

“There’ll be loads more seating, a much bigger bar, a better selection of games and more of them, and to top it off, a Laser Quest arena in the basement. When it comes to Laser Quest, expect the same NQ64 vibes with the added bonus of shooting your mates or boss!”
