1Up Orlando will open its new arcade-themed bar at 25 W Church Street later this year

Although the bar formerly operated as Joysticks out of a different location, the new bar will provide a different experience than the first, with some basic commonalities.

That does not include the name, which was changed as an homage to the “new life” that Joysticks’ owners hope to bring to 1UP.

The company has shared multiple updates through social media and has indicated that the new bar will feature similar decorations on a larger scale.

Joysticks was previously forced to closed down its doors amidst the pandemic in the fall of 2020.
