London's Otherworld VR Bar and Arcade

Mina Vucic

What could possibly be more fun than trying a personal virtual reality arcade while going out with your friends? An incorporated bar and VR experience all in one, that’s what. Here’s why Otherworld VR Bar and Arcade in London is the place to go.

The Otherworld gaming concept is located in an East London railway arch and is the first of its kind in the UK.

A whole other world lies inside the VR capsules

The bar offers custom-built white booths filled with the wildest sensory experiences as the player encounters the phenomenon of blowing winds, temperature changes and authentic sound effects.

Your portal to another world

Take part in shooting up robots, fighting a zombie apocalypse deep in Arizona or even climbing to the peak of Mount Everest.

This VR paradise offers 16 different gaming experiences. As the players step into the immersion room they find themselves placing on a headset and flying into a boundless world of their own. The best part of it is being reunited with friends in another dimension.

Unique spirits and mixed food plates

The fun doesn’t end once the games are finished; as soon as the players leave their booths they are offered unique cocktails and spirits accompanied with delicious snack dishes. The idea behind the concept is to excite the visitors’ senses and challenge preconceptions while gaming. Large groups are also offered sharing menus to make the experience more engaging and fun.

Otherworld is waiting for you

Otherworld is the most immersive VR arcade in London and is a definite must-try for all the wild souls out there. At only a two-minute walk from Haggerston Station or a 10-minute bus ride from Old Street, it’s easy to access for players who want an unforgettable experience. Buckle up for an extraordinary ride as you escape planet Earth and fly to another dimension at Otherworld.
