F1 Arcade accelerates its second venue into Paradise
F1® Arcade, the first Formula 1® licensed venue of its kind, is speeding into Birmingham with the creation of its second venue at Paradise, Birmingham.
The arcade will occupy an 11,000 sq. ft unit at Two Chamberlain Square following the announcement of its first location in London earlier this year.
F1 Arcade, with the main entrance on Centenary Way, will offer an immersive F1 racing simulation experience for individuals and groups, with bespoke simulators designed especially for the venue alongside food and drinks.
The concept was created by Adam Breeden, the pioneer of venues including Flight Club, Bounce, Hijingo, All Star Lanes and Puttshack.
F1 Arcade will join existing leisure operators at Paradise, including Vinoteca, Dishoom, Albert’s Schloss, Rosa’s Thai and Yorks.
Ross Fittall, senior development manager at MEPC, development and asset manager of Paradise, said: “F1 Arcade will be a major new attraction for the city and one that will appeal to all ages and backgrounds. This truly ground-breaking new leisure concept is coming to Birmingham in only its second venue in the UK. With cutting edge gameplay, high quality food and drink and an inviting, innovative space, it will be an exciting venue with something for everyone.”
Earlier this year, Birmingham City Council awarded permission for a new 17-storey, 152-bedroom hotel on the corner of Paradise Street, as well as new public realm across Phase Two and the next office building Three Chamberlain Square. Phase one of the Paradise development with One Chamberlain Square has been wholly occupied by PwC with the latest building One Centenary Square due for completion in early 2023.
Construction is already underway on the world’s first pure Octagon apartment tower in the northern part of the 2 million sq ft site.
