New Arcade Bar Can Finally Have Games On


With restrictions lifted on video games in Massachusetts, the new Play Arcade in New Bedford finally has an arcade bar. Opened for business on Aug. 19, owner Adam Katz originally had the games on after receiving permission from the city’s board of health. Two days later, they were told to shut the games down.

“The phone’s ringing off the hook today,” he added. Learn more about the arcade bar at
