Quarters, a Bar+Arcade and self-serve taproom, opens in Longmont October 2018
LAKE FOREST, CA – August 27, 2018 – A classic past time meets a new innovative technology in Longmont, Colorado!
Quarters Bar + Arcade will open its doors in Fall 2018. It will be the first and only self-serve bar using iPourIt self-serve technology in Longmont. iPourIt will install a beer wall consisting of 20 self-serve taps.
Co-Owners and Longmont couple, Luke and Emily Kunselman, first discovered the bar + arcade concept while celebrating their ten-year anniversary in Denver. For five years, they bounced ideas back and forth about what the company would look like. Emily had the idea for the name of Quarters as all the games cost either $.25 or $.50. Luke enrolled them both in a class, The Leading Edge, a Small Business Development Center course. Luke and Emily were determined to open a Bar + Arcade in Longmont, and this class helped them create a working business plan. The self-serve concept was later brought to the Kunselman’s attention after a friend visited one of iPourIt’s beer walls in California.
“This idea [the drink wall] was crucial to the plan because to date, neither of us had owned, managed or even worked in a bar. The number one reason that new bars fail is lack of industry knowledge. The iPourIt beer wall eliminates a lot of the difficulties bars struggle with, so it seemed like a perfect fit,” said Luke Kunselman.
Quarters will offer 20 rotating taps with beer, wine, and cider and around 18 retro arcade games. iPourIt’s RFID technology will work for both the self-serve beer wall and the games. Patrons will receive an RFID wristband after showing a form of identification and will be able to use the wristband to pour their own beer and to play arcade games. Quarters offers a variety of games, including skeeball, pinball, and classic arcade video games.
Vice President of iPourIt, Darren Nicholson says, “iPourIt is excited to bring a new and unique concept to Longmont. Luke and Emily have the creativity and entrepreneurial mindset to really make this self-serve bar arcade a favorite local spot. We are eager to grow the business with Quarters!”
The bar + arcade will have a prime location in Downtown Longmont. It will replace a former coffee shop located on Main Street.
