An upscale, videogame-themed Las Vegas nightclub is expanding to downtown Minneapolis.

Insert Coin(s) Videolounge GameBar has signed a lease for an 11,000-square-foot, two-level space at 315 First Ave., a Warehouse District space formerly occupied by Karma nightclub. It’s slated to open in early October, following a nearly $1 million renovation.

Insert Coin(s) will feature 45 refurbished classic arcade cabinets and 38 high-definition TVs hooked up to game consoles, ranging from the 1970s-era Atari to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There will be a video DJ, two full bars, a dance floor, a stage for live musical performances and a VIP room with a private entrance.

The club will maintain videogame library with thousands of titles; its staff will be able to teach patrons how to play the games. It will have between 50 and 60 employees, including at least four who are transferring from the Las Vegas club.

The 21-plus club will be open daily until 3 a.m.
