Work onerous, play tougher, and don’t overlook to step up your sport! There’s a brand new pop-up on the town that’s all about grabbing life by the joystick, and the perfect half is, you received’t want any quarters.

Get your sport on!

Oasis Wynwood is popping again time and upping the enjoyable this weekend.

Shara Kirton, Oasis Wynwood: “Huacachina normally is our chic indoor lounge, but we decided to go ahead and transform it into a really awesome, nostalgic, retro arcade getaway.”

Talk about leveling up! Oasis teamed up with machine makers Arcade1Up.

David McIntosh, Arcade1Up: “Arcade1Up is essentially just at-home arcade machines. We took the classic arcades that people know and love, and we made them so they’re a lot more compact and ready for everyday use in people’s homes.”

To carry over 20 old-school classics to the lounge.

Shara Kirton: “We have ‘Mortal Kombat,’ ‘Street Fighter,’ ‘NBA Jam,’ ‘Pac-Man,’ ‘Ms. Pac-Man,’ basically all of your retro arcade favorites, and we’re inviting guests to come check it out, play some games. They’re all free!”

There are even Star Wars- and Marvel-themed pinball machines!

The thought is to make you’re feeling like a child once more, however with an grownup twist.

Shara Kirton: “We created four specialty cocktails that are all arcade-inspired.”

One of them is even named after a traditional character.

Shara Kirton: “It’s called the Chun-Li Kick, and it is a vodka-based cocktail with lemon, simple syrup and muddled raspberry.”

Something tells me Nicki Minaj would approve, and talking of music, there’s gonna be a DJ spinning tunes all weekend lengthy.

So seize your Player Two, ’trigger why accept having only one life when you’ll be able to have three?

Ashley Caraway, visitor: “Definitely brought me a ’90s vibe, you know? Definitely gave me some nostalgia, especially with ‘Ms. Pac-Man.’ That was my favorite game growing up.”

Katriel Grant-Hope: “I definitely feel like a kid again, except a cooler kid, ’cause I know what’s coming, and I know how to beat the games.”
