Replay Arcade

The Replay Hot Dog Bar & Arcade is a modern arcade in downtown Banner Elk. Opening in May 2017, this arcade is a perfect place to host a party, have a corporate event, and even just hang out. There is a wide variety of games with many new and maybe even an old school one from back in the day. There is a hot dog bar with a menu of all different varieties and famous pizza from Sorrento’s. We strive to create the perfect atmosphere for your night out.
