MAME Arcade Bar
By now you’ve probably seen a thing or two about Australia’s Mara Bar, the magical place that combines video games and a full bar for nights of fun. And while Mana Bar is certainly a step up for video game bars, it is certainly not the first.
Back in 2008, Burke Lashell built an arcade bar that is by far one of the most impressive features of a house I’ve ever seen. When taking a first look, it appears to be just another bar with a nice 42 inch TV. However, the front of the bar can be flipped down in order to reveal four joysticks, ready for arcade action. The TV and joysticks are somehow connect to a PC, allowing arcade games to be played through arcade emulator MAME. Burke, quite the amazing thing you’ve made. Cheers to you!
