The nice aspect about this bar is if you drink, the games are free with the exception of the pinball machines. I went on a week day which was not crowded at all. I would be afraid to go on a weekend because if they...More

It is a bar with old arcade games around the perimeter of the building. There are very few seats and the ones that they have are always full. It's ok to start but it always fills up to capacity and then you can do nothing...More

This bar is an 80's arcade with beer. The beer is normal priced and all the arcade games except pinball is free. Pinball is 50 cents. Once a month there is a Sunday for kids. Good time to bring them down and drink while they...More

Alcohol + slushies and arcade games. Can it get any better? Drinks were great, games were old school, and the atmosphere took me back to a time I wasn't old enough to be in a bar. Made me feel a little rebellious.

I went here with my girlfriend on a Saturday around 4 p.m. and it was packed. The great thing here is that the arcade machines are FREE. The drinks can be a little pricey, but they taste great, and they really pack the alcohol into...More

So, I read about this place online and decided we would check it out since we had to go to Columbus to catch a flight anyway. I figured we would spend 2-3 hours maybe. I was actually worried I hadn't planned much more for the...More
