  • I love the idea of the arcade bar and the games were a lot of fun but the bar is a joke. I don't know if the bartenders are instructed to pour light by management but anyone that works in any sort of ...  more »
  • I miss these kind of places where you can grab a beer, distract yourself and have fun. Amazing atmosphere, very crowded during the weekend. Highly suggested if you are into arcade games of any kind.  more »
  • For someone who loves or old video games arcades like Donkey King, Galaga, Mortal Kombat this place is guaranteed fun. It is possible to play for $0.50 cents up to $1.00 depending on the game. Has very good beer. Have fun!! Relaxed and fun.

  • Definitely nothing like this place in Raleigh so it's unique. It's a bar and its an arcade but what makes it great is its more of an old school arcade type of feel to it. Love the NFL Blitz and NBA Jam (brings back memories). The bad is the place is always super crowded every time I've been there so be ready for that. Also some of the staff (not all of them) was either real slow at the bar or rude so they need to fix that part too. Your in the customer satisfaction business people !
  • I had a smile on my face the entire time I was there!! This place is fantastic! You definitely don't even have to be super into video games to have a blast here. They have a lot of the classic arcade games, an N64, skeeball, air hockey, and more. Drink selections are great too! They are really busy during the late weekend hours so be prepared for that but you can't fault them for be unique, popular, and fun!!!!
  • Great location and enough games to keep you busy. Beer selection is great with tons of choices. Did i mention free popcorn!
  • Love the idea, the environment and the games. I'm an old school gamer (80s baby) so everything in there has some sort of memory from the past. The only downside is the place is small. I hate crowds and unless you come at a non peak time, it's going to be shoulder to shoulder packed.
  • Absolute best place to drink in Raleigh. Plenty of good beer selections, specials for liquor and beer, and tons of NORMALLY priced games ie if it cost a quarter to play 20 years ago, it does here too.
