Finding us

Our main entry is located on the Lower Ground floor inside of Emporium Shopping Centre in Melbourne’s city centre (CBD).

This entrance can be used for our venue during Emporium’s regular opening hours, and is also where you’ll find our merchandise store and reception.

Our after-hours entry is used after Emporium closes and is located on 23 Caledonian Lane.


No! We welcome walk-ins, however to avoid a potential wait time we recommend bookings. With 2-levels of games, restaurant & bar space, we’ve got plenty of room to accommodate your socially distanced fun!


As per government direction, all patrons aged 16 and over must be fully vaccinated before they can enter the premises (exceptions apply). Patrons under 16 do not need to be vaccinated but must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult. Proof of vaccination can be determined using QR scanning through the Service Victoria app, which will link directly to the patron’s vaccination status and provide them with the means to show us proof from their phone. Masks are still required to be worn at all times unless eating & drinking.



Monday – Thursday: 12PM – 10PM

Friday – Saturday: 12PM – 2AM

Sunday: 12PM – 10PM
