Those who yearn for their childhood days of thrashing friends to climb the Pac Man scoreboard will soon be able to relive their glory days in Sebastopol.
But there’s more to The Rewind, arcade aficionado and former Bay Area real estate agent Adam Lam’s new concept set to open next month at The Barlow: it will also feature a self-serve bar and stay open until 2 a.m.
“(Arcades) have such a rich American history,” Lam said. “And there’s nothing else kind of like it (up here) where adults and even kids can relive the golden age of arcades that I grew up with.”
The Rewind will feature retro arcade games, from the ‘80s and ‘90s, alongside newer and digital games, located in the retail space next to Fern Bar and behind Woodfour Brewing Co. Its self-pour beverage “wall” will have 20 taps serving local craft, Japanese and German beers, ciders, and other local brews.
