Club Sega Yokohama (クラブセガ 横浜) is a former Club Sega venue opened by Sega during July 1997. Originally featuring a number of Mid-size attractions and food and drink outlets as one of the numerous new concept stores opened under the Club Sega name, it later closed in 2008.
Opening on 18 July 1997, the same date as Sega World Festival Gate, Club Sega Yokohama was one of a number of experimental facilities Sega opened in that year, including the aforementioned Festival Gate facility. It combined coin-operated arcade machines with a franchised Dippin' Dots outlet and a small number of mid-size attractions that had proven popular at previous Joypolis locations, in an attempt to improve a slump that pre-existing venues were facing.
The results of Sega's initiatives to open new-style amusement facilities during the late 1990s had proven to be mixed, and by the time of the late 2000s their game center operations were experiencing a second decline in Japan. Alongside a cancellation of plans for a significantly larger entertainment facility in Yokohama, its Club Sega location was closed permanently during March 2008.
