S&D’s Ultimate Arcade

October 6th, 2008

Update 11-11-08: Well hell, looks like this place is already closed, everything but the pins and air hockey tables was cleared out, without any sort of notice on the door. Anyone have the scoop?

Here are some shots of S&D’s Ultimate Arcade, the first independent arcade to open locally in years, and the first 24 hour arcade since Mary K’s back in the day. The arcade is at 5597 S Rainbow, near Russell Rd, and shares a strip mall with the Moto Cafe and Living Dead Tattoo.

The game selection is somewhat limited (they just opened Oct 1st), but Dov, who runs the arcade with his wife Sabine, is working with local operators to fill the place up. As it stands, the highlight is currently the selection of new Stern pins, including Spiderman, Indiana Jones, and The Dark Knight.

While I’m still rooting for someone to open a barcade-like establishment here in town, it’s nice to see businesses like this cropping up.

    I wouldn’t go to mountain coin. Unless you are rich, i would look at Pallaides behind the Palms. They have all your classic games, maybe some laserdisc games too.

    Just a suggestion, have you considered on getting marvel vs capcom 2, street fighter 3 third strike, capcom vs. snk 2, and maaybe some other fighters? theres a fighting game community here in vegas we held several tournaments in past arcades on those certain games.

    I haven’t been to that place before. But when I’ve discovered it the first time, I found out that it didn’t even exist, so I got sad.
