Spacebar Arcade Sixth-anniversary 80s Block Party

Saturday, Sept. 22, Spacebar Arcade


Spacebar is known for its subterranean digs on Capitol Boulevard, but to celebrate its sixth anniversary the old-school arcade is stepping into uncharted territory—the upstairs. On Saturday, Sept. 22, Spacebar will fill a nearby parking lot with an upstairs/downstairs 80s block party, complete with a slate of DJs and an outdoor dance party that promises to stretch into the early morning hours. The Boise Fry Company food truck will sling its signature fries with burgers on the side, and all of the games below ground in Spacebar's headquarters will be free all night long after a $5 admission fee. Plus, there will be a beer garden at street level in addition to the bar's usual pours, and 80s throwback attire is not just recommended, but highly encouraged.
