Brisbane’s first and only dedicated arcade game bar, Netherworld is not just full of the games of your childhood, but probably a few from your parents too (Snake? Pacman? Frogger?). Taking over the hellmouth on the corner of Brunswick Street and St Paul’s Terrace, the new watering hole is covered in appropriately evil looking graffiti – in between the 40 odd pinball and vintage arcade games.
If you can tear yourself away from the painstakingly collected gaming machines (there’s also over 100 board games, and even classic consoles like Super Nintendo and Atari to play on old school television sets), you’ll find 24 beers on tap, as well as ciders, wine, spirits, cocktails and a couple of fruity housemade sodas. When you inevitably get hungry after hitting those high scores, you can head to the Hellmouth Diner section of the bar, where a menu of hands on eats dishes up internationally inspired bar bites like burgers, hot dogs, burritos and nibbles.
