The world’s first Atari Hotel is currently set to open in Las Vegas sometime in 2022.
A second hotel is planned for Phoenix, with future locations to follow in Austin, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle.
Retro-futurist fever dream straight out of Blade Runner, as the classic 1980s gaming brand partners with GSD Group and architecture firm Gensler to design hotels that blend nostalgic sensibilities with modern technology.
The Vegas Atari Hotel will boast in-room gaming consoles, vintage-style arcades featuring virtual and augmented reality tech, an eSports multiplex, a multipurpose gaming arena, and themed restaurants, nightclubs and bars.
The property is tentatively planned to have up to 400 rooms, stand 30 stories tall, and will split into separate areas connected by a glass atrium resembling a massive, three-pronged Atari logo.
Atari started in 1972 with Pong.
Then the Atari 2600 came out in 1977.
