Greater Manchester’s newest gaming bar!

1UP is a tailored gaming bar created to encourage people like us to socialise and game together, but much more than that, it is a haven for people with an interest in all aspects of gaming culture to come and share in collective enthusiasm for whatever is your poison.

Consoles, arcades, pinball, boardgames, Dungeons & Dragons, Pokémon cards and a general celebration of the golden age of gaming in the 1970s and 80s to the modern day platforms is the key focus of 1UP. A place to inspire creativity in an exciting and comfortable space and be yourself in whatever interest you have; 1UP is filled with little nuggets of game geek culture. See if you can spot them all!
