What's the deal with Quazar's?
Quazar’s is an all-ages 80’s inspired arcade and pinball room serving espresso and soda. We opened in November of 2018 in our current location, and we are the only one of our kind in Victoria, BC. Operating as Vancouver Island Arcade Amusements Inc, we also rent arcade and pinball machines for events and machine placement in businesses across Vancouver Island. Our purpose is to collect and restore arcade and pinball machines so the public can enjoy them, and to help preserve an important part of video game and pinball history for future generations.
When are you open?
We are open from noon to 10pm on Sunday through Thursday and noon to 11pm on Friday and Saturday. We are also open on all holidays with the exception of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Who owns it?
Quazar’s is locally owned and operated by three partners who are lifelong classic arcade enthusiasts. It was opened in November of 2018 as a way to showcase their growing collection of vintage arcade and pinball machines and bring some of the new generation of pinball machines to Vancouver Island.
Where is it?
We are located at 1215 Government Street in in beautiful downtown Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We occupy three storefronts in the lower level of Victoria’s historic Trounce Alley, on the West side of Government Street between View and Yates across from the Bastion Square and the Irish Times Pub.
Can I bring kids?
You bet! Quazar’s is great fun for the whole family. But please no unattended children under the age of 13.
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, no. We are a licensed food service facility due to our espresso sales, so service animals only please!
What does it cost to play?
We use a token based system. Our tokens cost 50¢ a piece. Our classic arcade games cost 1 token to play (with a few exceptions). Most of our pinball games cost 2 tokens to play, with a few new or very rare pinball machines costing 3 tokens. All token prices are clearly marked on the machines. Tokens can be purchased from our machine or any staff member with cash, debit and credit. Please note that we take USD at par and all token sales are final.
Do you serve beer or alcohol?
