Opening late November 2018!

About The Arcade Vaults

We are The Arcade Vaults, an exciting and unique venue and community in the centre of Cardiff for all things videogaming. If you make games, play games both old and new, want to learn about games, or would just like to engage with the community in this amazing world of games, then this is the place for you.

At the heart of The Arcade Vaults and its community is you; the players and the creators. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to play videogames and even more so, anyone should be able to make them and understand how they are made.

The Stuff We do

  • z
    Our arcade is split into two areas - we have a space featuring classic consoles and hundreds of games, with a small free-to-play area where we also serve coffee, tea, drinks and gamer friendly snacks. We are also open on selected evenings for those that like a stronger beverage with their gaming fun!
  • l
    We have a dedicated co-working space for anyone interested in making games or being part of a community who do. There are three pricing tiers available to anyone who wants to use the space, with high-speed broadband (wired and wireless), tea and coffee, and a kitchen, plus various tech facilities and business support!
  • d
    Our upstairs space is a flexible area available for hire. We can run events for you with a wide selection of retro and modern gaming consoles, or just provide the space on its own to you, with access to our bar and free-to-play area.
  • g
    We organise events and parties across the UK. And we really do everything, including supplying the gaming gear and screens, promotion of the event, set-up, photography, prizes and so on! We also do educational seminars and networking events for those of you in the community looking to learn something new or meet like-minded people.
