Bishop Cider Company Creates Cidercade

Operating on a wristband model that charges a flat fee for unlimited play, Bishop Cider Company opened their Cidercade in December in the Design District of Dallas, Texas. Inspired by one of their own favorite stops, the Pinballz Arcade in Austin,  Joel and Laura Malone, the founders of Bishop, decided to utilize a few thousand square feet of unused warehouse space to bring the concept back to their home city.

The arcade bar has a lively mix of 80s classics, a few pinball machines, plus some emulator machines. The emulators may invoke the ire of die-hard purists, but do serve to separate their fare from other arcade bars.

There are some arcade-inspired ciders on tap, Galaxy and Mosaic, “both drier ciders that are generously hopped and clock in at 6.9% ABV,” according to their facebook page.

Although they’ve only been opened a month, they have been cycling in new games already, adjusting to tastes and demands of gamers while also keeping things fresh.
