Opening of a new arcade bar in Murrells Inlet
MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – A new venture in Murrells Inlet seeks to provide a unique form of entertainment for residents and visitors to the Grand Strand.
Player1UP, an arcade bar located in the former Milardo’s Pizzeria and Sports Pub near Highway 17 Business, is scheduled to open Thursday. It is the franchise’s second location, the first in Rock Hill.
WMBF News got a special sneak peek inside on Sunday ahead of its grand opening. The arcade will feature many old school classics such as Donkey Kong and Pac-Man as well as newer titles.
All of this is combined with pool tables, skeeball and other crowd favorites – including plenty of pinball machines for everyone.
Player1UP will also serve food in addition to its bar. Co-owner Howard Bohrer says he hopes the place can create fun memories for those who stop and visit.
“Just the nostalgia of playing the packman and the Donkey Kongs and all that stuff,” he said. “You know, kids are now playing technical types of games so parents can go, I remember being back when I was a kid. you go to an arcade and you put on a quarter and you play.
Bohrer also mentioned that there are plans for future pinball competitions at Player1UP that could attract more retro players to the Grand Strand.
