Chinatown Fair Arcade to Reopen May 5
Last week we confirmed reports that, one year after closing shop, the beloved Chinatown Fair was indeed reopening its longtime HQ at 8 Mott Street. Under new management. Now even more details are coming to light regarding the arcade reboot.
First and foremost, this latest iteration of the gamer paradise will retain the Chinatown Fair moniker. Honestly, it would be a mistake not to. The brand value is still in the green.
Secondly, the sweaty grime is being hoovered as we speak. The new mantra here is that of a family friendly destination, which translates to mostly new machines including pinball (!) and those that dispense tickets for redeemable prizes. The Tic-Tac-Toe Chicken is still a distinct possibility…
As for opening date, meanwhile, we are told CF will relaunch on May 5 with some sort of inauguration; coupons will be distributed. Save those tokens, though, because swipe cards are coming.
