I am a HUGE arcade fan. Yes, they can be expensive, but to just spend a day out with friends, playing games and having fun? Sign me up. So when I found out that The Rec Room is going to be built in Downtown Vancouver, I got very excited.
The Downtown location will be in the Granville Entertainment District, so if you aren’t feeling like going to big nightclubs, you can head over to The Rec Room. However, this location won’t be open until 2021 so you’ll have to wait a little bit. Luckily there is meant to be another location opening in The Amazing Brentwood shopping centre in Burnaby, so you won’t have to wait too long.
The Rec Room is a great place to hang out with friends as it has a little bit of everything for everyone. Anytime I fly home that is where I meet up with my friends to catch up with each other. It gives us something to do while it also gives space to sit down to have dinner and chat.
As of right now The Rec Room can’t be found anywhere in British Columbia, but I grew up in Northern Alberta, so a quick hour and a half drive to West Edmonton Mall and we are ready to play. If you’ve never heard of it before, The Rec Room is basically a giant adult arcade. Kids are allowed to go too, but this arcade offers more than just
Once the Rec Room opens I definitely recommend checking it out as it’s a new and exciting thing to do in Vancouver. I know I’m going to be heading there as soon as it opens the doors.
