This retro cafe opened just last year. Owner Chris Knecht grew up during the 1980s. He inherited all of his 80s memorabilia from his grandfather. He originally used it to open an 80s pop-culture-themed retail store in California back in 2014. After the pandemic struck he temporarily closed the store and ultimately ended up using his years of experience in the restaurant industry to open Back To The 80’s Cafe in Vegas. 


Back To The 80’s Cafe is located at 4755 S Maryland Pkwy, Las Vegas, NV 89119,  right across the street from UNLV. You might even see The Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 parked out front! The cafe is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm.
