Christopher LaPorte transformed his passion for video-gaming into Insert Coin(s), a one-of-a-kind hangout that everyone’s been talking about. The 35-year-old Brooklyn native combined all the elements of a Vegas nightclub—bottle service, hot waitresses, top DJs—with a floor full of the best video games of past and present (not to mention video-game consoles available at the bar and in VIP booths). In doing so, he’s flipped a location that previously housed cheesy retail into a must-see weekend party stop. LaPorte and a business partner plan to open a second location later this year in Minneapolis, proving that just because you grow up doesn’t mean it’s “game over.”
