    That's some selection of machines, hope it all works out for you guys. Will have to organise a trip down when it opens.

    How about a Boardies meetup for a nite down there?
    Cidermans you'll be glad not to have to host or cleanup for a change? ;)

    I don't mind driving down and back again, for a change!

    I might even be able to make it this time :D:D

    I went to the Computer Museum in Galway a couple of Fridays ago by the way Ollie. Well worth a look they've got some mad stuff in there. The first electronic calculator, Minitels, earliest laptop, tons of different early Compaq computers etc. One of the fellas helping run it is a fan of yours. https://www.facebook.com/ccmireland/

    You're all welcome, might be able to set something up in relation to that closer to opening date and couple potentially reserve a few tables/ section if there's interest :)

    Just on the topic of BarKade opening in Limerick...
    I have never had so many friends contact me regarding a bar opening!
    I really hope it goes well! :D

    Mr. Dav, your BarKade campaign seems to have the momentum of a runaway freight train. Why are you so popular?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,103 ✭✭✭ RocketRaccoon


    Scotts bar is the location


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,067 ✭✭✭ johnnyryan89


    That's a good location for them being that close to a third level school.

    If being close to 3rd level school had any bearing on the success of a bar a hell of a lot of pubs would never have gone out of business ;)

    TBH everyone I know that's talking about it is in the mid 30s and up bracket too.
    And I say that as nearly 40y.o 1st year Uni student.
    The demographics of who this bar will appeal to will be very interesting.

    Its definitely going to be a very instagrammable spot ;)
    But I'd wonder how much business the student crowd will bring?
    I really do think its going to be more of a Daddy Day Care :P
    Rather than a crèche once the initial novelty of opening wears off.

    I'd love to see it hit every demographic and hold all the cards with, beer, games and great food...

    30min walk from my front door. I'll definitely be down.


  • Registered Users Posts: 39 coffey87


    Any update on opening dates? Hows the fit out going?


  • Registered Users Posts: 405 ✭✭ dav09


    Things are going fine thanks, as you can probably tell we've had a number of hold ups but not to worry, it is what it is. Currently waiting for everything to fall into place I.E. Electricians/Plumbers/Builders but things are making progress. We were hoping to be opened 1st week of November initially but things have progressed quite slow and we had a number of hurdles put in place. Will update everyone on an opening date ASAP.

    On the machine side of things, stuff has gone well. One or two hiccups (a box of CRT chassis has issues after repair) and some parts took a little longer than expected but things should be almost good to go with machines (I believe there's about 25 of them coming down today from up the country). We have most of the high-demanded machines and most of the machines we were after at this stage.

    Kickstarter also seems not to have went to plan so that's another issue since it's all or nothing, we'd still love to ensure our venue is ultra-accessible for disabled access so we'll do our best, but it doesn't look like we'll reach the goal unfortunately.

    Don't see any opening times or information about any token deals :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 405 ✭✭ dav09


    Hope everyone enjoyed the night, had bit of a disaster at the start of the night with a small hiccup but once we got up and going. A couple of machines we didn't have quite ready unfortunately due to the electricity mess all day, but we'll be putting out more and more machines over the next few days and considering am putting them on free play for the first while.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,033 ✭✭✭ XsApollo


    All the sites aren’t working that were linked in the op?
    Or is there a new site?
    Just every search I do on google throws up a dead link too...... in case you didn’t know.

    Will be popping out with the kids in the near future.
