EUROPE’S LARGEST ARCADE TO OPEN IN LIVERPOOL
Mikhail Hotel & Leisure Group (MHALG) has revealed the next phase of his £7m transformation of the former Cains Brewery in Liverpool – Europe’s largest retro and futuristic arcade.
The company has announced plans to open Europe’s largest retro and futuristic arcade in Liverpool as part of a £3m investment in the Baltic Triangle development.
Set to employ more than 100 people, ArCains arcade will house all old original games and virtual reality within a wholly dedicated floor as part of the ongoing redevelopment of the famous Cain’s site in the Baltic Triangle. The aim is to open the attraction later this year.
Entrepreneur and Chairman of MHALG, Andrew Mikhail said: “Our proposed £3m investment in ArCains is part of our wider £7m plans for the strategic regeneration of Cain’s.
“Situated in the vicinity of Liverpool’s dynamic tech world, we believe that ArCains enhances the sector offer with more than 100 jobs being created on the back of our plans.
“Not only will the stunning arcade development offer the biggest selection of arcade games anywhere in Europe. Our partners alongside many stakeholders in the area believe ArCains will be a significant addition to the Baltic creative offering that already exists.”
MHALG has invested almost £2m so far into the site at Cain’s with more than £1.7m spent on Punch Tarmey’s alone.
“It’s a win-win for Liverpool, a city in which I was born. I share the passion and vision that our city leaders and decision makers have in continuing to drive sustainable investment into nascent areas of Liverpool that brings jobs and prosperity to the local community and the multiplier effects of mass tourism alongside.”
