Formula 1 fans have a reason to race to the Boston Seaport next month. F1 Arcade — the world’s first F1 racing simulator — is set to open in Boston on Monday, April 22. This is the first US location for the experiential venue.

The 15,500-sqft venue will include two floors, a 37-ft long bar, and 69 full-motion racing simulators. If all that racing makes you hungry, virtual racers will be able to feast on dishes like barbacoa tacos and wagyu beef burgers + sip on cocktails like the signature Pole Position — a blend of Hendrick’s Gin, Creme de Cocoa, and Champagne. Bonus: Book a private party in the exclusive 2,400-sqft space that can accommodate up to 200 guests.

On your mark, get set — go to 87 Pier 4 Blvd. to check it out in April.
