Smash Street

Although not exactly a gaming parlour, Smash Street has been winning hearts since they opened back in 2015. From a good-enough range of PS3 games, indoor games like foosball, Laser Tag, and air hockey, plenty of board games and a tasty menu, Smash Street has it all. They also have a quirky layout and free WiFi which is probably why it’s still our favourite hangout.

Smash Street is open from 10:30am to 10pm. And they have a capacity of up to 65 people — so there’s plenty of room for everyone!
