Look inside Harrisburg’s new arcade bar

Jan. 9, 2018

Whether you’re a vintage Space Invaders player or modern HD gamer, the new arcade bar in Harrisburg caters to fans of all generations.

EightyOne opened the week after Christmas, closed for a week and now is opening permanently.

It’s in a strip mall at 220 S. Cliff Ave.

Owner Errol Stewart grew up in Tea and graduated from Lennox High School in 1999. His career as a web and mobile designer has taken him to the Twin Cities, Seattle, San Francisco and Miami, working for Netflix, Microsoft and Starbucks’ corporate office.

Arcade games are his passion, though, and with a collection overflowing his home, it made sense to turn the hobby into a business, he said.

The bar offers beers on tap and bottled, with a focus on craft beers. The 4,000-square-foot space includes a kitchen, so the business might add food.

EightyOne is open to all ages. Hours are 3 p.m. to midnight Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, and 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
