When Revenge of the Nerds hit movie theaters in 1984

Enrique Montero­­ was eight years old and a student at Walnut Creek’s Murwood Elementary School. Like so many of that era, Montero became obsessed with the MTV pop culture of the 80’s, rocking’ parachute pants, and breakdancing to Beverly Hills Cop’s “Axel F” at Larkey Park as a teenager.

RETRO JUNKIE WHERE TOTALLY GEEK MEETS TOTALLY CHIC, BRINGING NOSTALGIA BACK TO THE FUTURE.

Hop in the DeLorean and set the date to 1985. Because Retro Junkie is taking you back. How far back? Way back. Retro Junkie oozes 80s/90s nostalgia… a time when arcade games cost a quarter and ollies were snapped in every parking lot. It’s a throwback bar, but it’s so much more. The unique space blends pop culture geek with rock ‘n’ roll chic. It’s got modern classic “swag” dripping from neon pasted art covered walls. There’s a DJ spinning from a one-of-a-kind booth made from old tape decks (you’ve got to see to believe) and live music blaring from the best sounding stage in the East Bay. Want more? Retro Junkie has live band karaoke, comedy shows, outdoor movie nights, premium pinball, pool tables, and classic arcade games (Tron or Ms. Pac-Man! anyone?). There is truly something for everyone.

If you’re thirsty, Retro Junkie has an amazing signature cocktail menu and a diverse local craft beer selection on tap. If you’re hungry, local gourmet food trucks are on constant rotation during the weekends.

Real talk, Retro Junkie is set up perfectly for these unique times. They have 8,000 sq. ft. of socially distanced table service including the new outdoor beer garden.

Located at the intersection of Main Street and California, and centrally located in Walnut Creek’s historic downtown area, Retro Junkie is only steps away from the Marriott Hotel, BART, and blocks away from the city’s world-class restaurants, and premier shopping.
