    I LOVE THIS PLACE. I have been coming for over three years now. The staff are friendly, and they all speak English. The prices are pretty standard for a bars in this area but the quality is great as they have their own range of video game themed cocktails. You can play nearly every video game console from the classic Atari right up to the most recent hits. The place is rather small by international standards, but the size is standard for bars in the area, also it can get crowded at times, but that's because it's so awesome.!

    Only really for people who played retro games, the crowd tends to be engulfed in the games, so interactions are limited. Such a small place that it is nearly unusable on a Friday or Saturday. Weekdays are recommended though. Staff are super friendly, the drink selection have interesting names, a lot are named after elements of games. I recommend the triforce

    Cute little place with friendly staff. If you like games I think this is the bar for you. There are all the systems from retro stull like NES all the way to the new stuff. Drinks can cost a little more than what is standard though, so be prepared for that. If games are your thing, you'll like it, if not, look elsewhere.

    Place is dope. Owner? is super friendly and enthusiastic. Drinks are inventive and delicious. And you can play every system you had during childhood and then some.

    Quite a cool place. Drinks were more than advertised but it was fun to sit down and have a drink with a mate and play some Fifa.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
