i’m from pensacola FL and we have 1 arcade that has 0 fighters in it. I would be happy to see a good arcade pop up again. Prior to hurricane IVAN, pensacola actually had a decent arcade scene. That hurricane fucked shit up here for a while. For those that have never been in a lvl 4 hurricane, the morning after literally looks like a war zone.
What you’re asking for already currently exists, well sorta. A bowling alley generally has an arcade. The bowling alley is allowed to sell beer so you don’t have to worry about a liquor license and the family environment is there w\in the bowling alley. Bowling, typically shooting pool and an arcade.
if you know where palafox is, I assume you do since you live in pkola, theres a bowling alley with a skate park in front of it. Now they have an arcade but the games are terribly shitty. You should ask about renting that space out and replacing the games. This way, you’re NOT entirely investing a good lump sum into a spot no one will go to. Kids already hang out there due the skate park and the bowling alley is really packed during league nights and fri\sat nights. You wont have to worry about advertising really because the majority of the people will be their bowling or @ the skate park. Word of mouth is free advertising.
