WESTFIELD, NJ — YESTERcades will open its third arcade in at 151 East Broad St. in Downtown Westfield this spring, the company announced Tuesday. The space was formerly occupied by City Sports.
YESTERcades describes itself as gaming experience straight out of the “golden age of gaming.” They offer a variety of arcade video games, such as Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Street Fighter and NBA Jam as well as classic pinball machines. Locations have both classic and modern consoles.
Ken Kalada opened the first YESTERcades location in Red Bank in 2011, according to YESTERcades Manager Fred Logue.
“The feedback was overwhelming and he was fortunate enough to open the second location in Somerville in 2014. After the demand grew even higher to put a location in Union County, we decided that Westfield was [the] only option,” Logue said. “We are extremely ecstatic to announce today that YESTERcades of Westfield will be opening in the Spring of 2018 at 151 East Broad St, formerly City Sports. We will be keeping everyone updated on our new YESTERcades of Westfield Facebook page.”

In June, the Westfield Town Council voted to allow arcades downtown after they were previously banned during the 1970s.
