An arcade machine- the ultimate birthday party companion

Here at Bespoke Arcades we’re only too happy to help when some friends ask us to to loan a couple of machines to help celebrate a birthday celebration. In this case, it was the creative agency Monorex’s 9th birthday celebration in the trendy area of Hoxton in London. DJ’s, drinks, lectures , debates and live art was all abound, and of course our arcades were there to lend a helping hand to the festivities.

The secret warehouse location was alive and buzzing thanks to the feast for the senses delivered by Terry and his compatriots. Free rum courtesy of Ray and Nephew also helped to lubricate the proceedings. Whereas so many collective creative agencies have come and gone, Monorex have flourished since their conception 9 years ago and continue to expand and think outside the box, delivering their urban know-how to major brands.

The 9th birthday party was also home to a pop up exhibition and their Secret Walls live art battle which featured 3 UK artists versus 3 from the Czech Republic. However this wasn’t the only battle to be found on the night- fireballs and hurricane kicks were abound all over the venue thanks to our arcade machines and were occupied all night long. As always- our arcade cabinets can put up with the the fierce hammering of the general public.

All parts are of a commercial grade which is why the like of Capcom have used us for demonstrating Capcom Arcade cabinet, Warner Bros have used our machines for the launch of Mortal Kombat 9 and more recently Injustice: Gods Among Us. You can be safe in the knowledge you’re in good hands if you purchase and arcade machine from Bespoke Arcades.

Not only is a Bespoke Arcades machine the ultimate birthday present- it’s always the life of the party for decades to come.

Happy Gaming!!!
