  • This was a fun stop on our afternoon in Raleigh. Recommended by our family who lives here, we brought our 12 year old to play in the arcade, while we enjoyed beer on the Patton surrounded by college s...  more »
  • We usually go here on Sundays for the champagne special - a bottle is $10 and they give you free tokens with it. Sometimes they have random live music outside but whatever happens, it's always a blast...  more »
  • Visited for the 2nd time yesterday, and as always, had a blast. Great beer menu. Loved the Sweet Baby Jesus chocolate peanut butter brew. Very friendly staff.  more »

  • I do like this door of downtown, if only the Dance Dance Revolution system were swapped for Pump It Up Prime, then it'd be more fun. I'm sure the crowd would have more fun with one of the many games to play being an updated game. A Dancing game at that too. I know I would come more often if there were one to play with.
  • For the 1st time me being here it was a Fun experience. I went on a Sunday and Had their 10 dollars for a Bottle of Champagne offer along with some Orange Juice and Brought me some Tokens. 20 dollars worth. Which I believe is the Most. To get. Anywho great experience for a Person like myself. Coming from a Different State and Coming into an Establishment of where the Vibe is Positive and releasing my inner kid. Will Come Again.!!!
  • Cool place with lots of video game options. Could be cleaner as with beer and video games there ends up being a lot of sticky surfaces. The bartenders are nice and beer prices are good. Fun place to go hang around :-)
  • FUN!! A great place for the kid in you. Classic games you don't see anymore and outgoing atmosphere. Good drinks, free water, and free popcorn!! Looking forward to seeing more of places like this. Job well done Raleigh!
  • I only wish it was less crowded but you can't fault then for that. As a child that grew up in the video game golden age of the 80's this place is a dream come true. Old and new games along with a good selection of pinball machines. Plenty of drinks to choose from and a place to put your drink while you play. I've been here more than a few times and I plan on returning again.

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
