Client: Cisco Systems
Project: Arcade Bar
Location: San Diego, California
Event Type: 80’s Arcade Theme / Senior Executive Dinner Reception
Attendees: 400

The Challenge:
Cisco hired ThemeDream to source a venue in San Diego for its senior executives to blow off some steam and have some memorable fun playing games, eating and drinking.

The Results:
ThemeDream transformed a San Diego venue into an 80’s Classic Arcade Bar!  Guests took photos with Pac-Man & Mario on the red carpet, walked through a 20 foot entrance of Atari 2600 box cover art, and ordered drinks at The “Power Up” Bar from a Nintendo Game Controller Cocktail Menu featuring Street Fighter “Hadouken” flamed cocktails, smoking “Dragon’s Lair” drinks, “Sub-Zero” Spiked Slurpees and a frog in your “Frogger Juice” cocktail!  Guests tapped their toe to nostalgic 80’s song classics as they grazed at iconic-video-game-character food stations such as Sonic Sliders, Frogger Fries, Pac-Man Pizza, Duke Nukem Nachos & Centipede Salads and enjoyed 80’s vintage candy at the Donkey Kong Candy Store! However, the "real fun" began when guests relived their 80’s youth playing classic arcades such Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede, Asteroids and Space Invaders.  To add a level of playful competition, we hosted a Street Fighter II competition on a 30' LED screen, transformed an area into a Halo "Laser Tag" Battle Zone, as well as tournaments for Ping Pong, Pop-A-Shot, and Golf Simulator!  Things got heated as guests battled for bragging rights and one-of-a-kind trophies we custom made that they could proudly display in their office, such as a Street Fighter Champion "Ryu" statue and a Pop-A-Shot Champion "Magic Johnson" autographed basketball!
