Reviews

This is a super-cool bar, especially if you're a Gen X'er. It's half-bar, half-arcade, and things like the free Super Nintendo console projected on the wall with the box full of cartridges just adds to the nostalgia. We were only able to stay for about 45 minutes, but I wish we'd been able to camp all night. Update: I really hate to do this, but I'm taking a star back because the service has been consistently bad here. I wouldn't edit a review for one or two off-nights, but this has been over several visits. I'm not sure where they found them, but the snooty bartenders are almost insufferable. Would it kill you to actually speak to a customer? Like, literally just say "hi" or (hold on to your hats) "thank you"? One male bartender literally said *nothing*. I asked him how much I owed him for the drink and he simply pointed at the price on the menu. Seriously?

Cool vintage games! However, there’s not enough of them for the amount of people who go here. Good location with delicious food within walking distance, but they offer no food at this location. The games do not all work and those that do are typically taken with a couple people in line to play next.
