Loved my night with my mates here. We booked a booth (they give you free beer and nachos) and played for hours. Also very decent pricing for Melbourne.

This place was recommended to us so we came here for a drink and it was great fun playing on mario cart and time crisis. The bar tender knew how to make a good coctail. This place is a time capsule and worth visiting

Bartronica is a perfect escape to fondly remember and play retro games and enjoy craft beer and great cocktails. So many old school games mixed with the latest pinball machines makes this place a must visit. Each game costs $1-$2 which can work out to...More
