404 Riyadh’s TikTok account has been teasing us with what we can expect, as videos give us a sneak peak of what’s inside the venue. Guests can look forward to cool activities, ranging from basketball hoops to pool tables. Plus, you’ll be working up an appetite after all those games, so dig into the comfort food and drinks such as hot dogs, burgers, chicken wings, ice cream and milkshakes.

The creators behind the venue clearly have a sense of humour. 404 Riyadh derives its name from the 404 error message, which is displayed on browsers when an Internet address cannot be found. While the TikTok and Instagram accounts are entitled We Found 404.
