After lots of feedback from our customers we have created an all new Bartop Arcade cabinet we’re calling the Pacade! This cabinet is just like our original Bartop Arcade Cabinet Build, but with a few modifications. The Pacade changes the game and looks pretty darn sweet!  Unlike the original Bartop Arcade, the Pacade Bartop Arcade is shorter. It no longer has a lighted marquee.  This makes the Pacade perfect for smaller spaces.  This also means the Pacade doesn’t need an LED light or a marquee printed, reducing the complexity.

The new 4.0 PLATINUM EDITION of these plans are the best plans yet!  We continuously update these plans to make sure they are the best on the Internet. Plan include both Inches and Millimeters to support bartop arcade builders worldwide!

Get ready to have such an awesome time replaying all of your favorite arcade games from the past and reminiscing old times with friends! Having your own Bartop arcade in your game room, bar, or dorm room will make everyone think you are awesome! So let’s do this!
