Dublin will soon gets its own arcade-restaurant-pub space called Token

Token DublinGreat news for folks in and around Dublin as this summer will see the grand opening of a new gaming focused arcade-bar-restaurant close to the city centre. A project that has been in the works for three years will now open this summer. Get ready to spend your time in Token!

“After 3 long years of trying to make it happen, we’re happy to announce that we are opening Token – our restaurant – bar – arcade -pinball parlour – and event space in Smithfield! (The name “The R.B.A.P.P.E.E.” just didn’t seem to work).”

The project is the hard work of The R.A.G.E, short for Record Art Game Emporium, who provide gamers with retro classic consoles and games from all generations. And vinyl too! Seriously, check these guys out, especially over the holidays when they sell some truly mouth-watering bundles!

The location will be a two-storey space offering arcade machines and pinball tables, as well as providing beverages and food. What more could you want? However, the kicker is that the lift needs some refurbishment, and while Token’s opening won’t be hindered by it, the team behind it want your help in making it accessible for all fans. They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to make this happen, so if you’re feeling generous, why not pay their Kickstarter a visit?

Token will open in May of this year, and you can find it a few minutes walk from the Smithfield LUAS station and Dublin Bus stop 7453 (Arran Quay), just one street west from Smithfield Square and one block up from the LUAS tracks. The address is 72-74 Queen Street, Dublin, Ireland.
