The staff really helped me out for a company event. I had people flying in at different times and they put aside a couple of tables to help us come and go over the course of 5 hours. The fact it was a slow Tuesday...More

One of our friends forgot her ID and was not allowed in, understandable. What wasn’t reasonable is making her wait outside for us on a very cold night. He wouldn’t even let her wait in the lobby area, very unprofessional. The rest of us loved...More

Games free but the beers are overpriced. Atmosphere is mediocre. Their doormen were unpleasant; they escorted us into the cold before our transportation was arranged.

A bunch of people recommend this place to me, and I'm glad I went! They have a huge selection of retro arcade games and pinball machines, and most of them are free! There's also a good selection of beers. Great place for a night out!

This is first and foremost, a bar. Yes, they have old school arcade and pinball games. Most of them are free, which is awesome. They have tables so you can sit and order food and drinks. Or you can get a drink at the bar...More
