Barcade Party

NYCC is coming and it’s time to get those parties lined up! Kick off your con experience with a fandom-fueled evening full of drinks, games, bites, contests, giveaways, dancing, and more. Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 2, on the rooftop of Yotel New York for a retro gaming experience while sippin’ on sweet, geek-inspired cocktails.

Grab some Power Rangers costumes from Disguise to level up your night, and get nostalgic and silly with some classic Mad Libs. Play the latest arcade games from AtGames, work it out on the dance floor, and enter to win incredible prizes, including the hottest collectibles, toys, and more.

Come on, live a little! Cosplay is highly encouraged. Pose for photos by pro cosplay photographers, and make your YouTube debut on a special episode of Cosplayers Getting Coffee. You can even hang out with the NY Avengers!

Tickets are just $35 each and must be purchased through Eventbrite. Tickets include unlimited drinks, free light bites and appetizers, games, raffles, contests, and giveaways, photo and video ops, door prizes, and SWAG.

A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Stan Lee Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Stan Lee in 2010 that helps provide access to literacy, education, and the arts throughout the U.S.
