We have created a fun and fully inclusive venue for gamers of all ages and walks of life to visit, mingle, discuss and play the games from their youth and to share with their friends and family. Our specially built arcade cabinets house a selection of the best home consoles across the past 5 decades, from Atari and Binatone to Nintendo, Sega, Playstation and Xbox.

We also specialise in refurbished and modified retro consoles, games, merch and toys to buy in store and online.

Situated on the verge of Glasgow's bustling East End, R-CADE is a short walk from the busy city centre and just around the corner from Glasgow Green.
