Vector Arcade Clearwater update
« on: April 12, 2018, 09:19:36 AM »
Hello all,

I know a lot of you guys don't Facebook so I wanted to post an update here on our progress.  I've been working on the bar/arcade for a little over 3 months now and we are in the home stretch; I hope to have the place open next month, but I still have a lot of work to do, including building the bar...  We had a city event last night with about 40 of the hotel Concierge from Clearwater beach and they all were very excited.

We are going to have a ton of Craft Beer (bottles, cans and draft), Wine, Sake, soda's and coffee.  Right now I have about 20 games in there but I still have a few more incoming.   The place is located right on the main strip in Downtown Clearwater and the entire area has been recently been remodeled.

I'll post some more updates soon, I'm looking forward to seeing everyone.

Thanks, everyone.  We just got done framing the bar today.  My 13 year old son learned how to use the miter saw today; which made the job go much faster.
