When: NQ64, Glasgow’s new home of gaming and cocktails, will welcome games testers on Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th March at their brand-new adult-only basement venue in Glasgow’s Merchant Square. The venue will officially open to the public on Friday, 18th March with a few surprises in store.

Taking over the former Distrikt club on Bell Street, the late-night basement venue will be an adult-only playground covered wall to wall in graffiti and complete with a multitude of gaming experiences, craft beers and game-themed cocktails - including strawberry gin-based Pacs a Punch and the fiery, rum-heavy Mad Max.
