FUN! So glad our friends recommended this place for us to go and play some pinball. Although it was super crowded inside, it was a fun place for grown ups to go and just hang out without spending a bunch of money. I wish we had one of these where I live!

Good prices for drinks and all your favorite games from your childhood. We went there our 1st night in Denver and loved it. Lots of fun and a great place to catch up with old friends.

Went on a cold Friday night. Played some pinball and classic coin games. Nice place. Was surprised to see younger crowd here and not just kids from the 80s

This is a place I always end up when I'm visiting Denver. 25cent video games, decently priced drinks, and a donut burger. Good enough for me.

We had a great time at this arcade bar! It's not a huge place, but they have plenty of games packed in there. It was a bit crowded on a Friday night, but thinned out a little as the night went on.Plenty of pinball and nostalgic console games. Large bar with plenty of selections. We had a great time!

Great idea, fab vintage games, loved it. Only thing was the bar staff were so rude! I was trying to figure out my dollars for a drink as im not American and was trying to give the right amount and they snapped at me to hurry up, tutted, became sarcastic, and then got mad when i didnt tip.

This place is a staple for those who like to drink and play retro arcade games. The experience is best when not super busy, otherwise you will wait and wait and wait.

We had so much fun when we visited here! There are plenty of games. Most of them only cost a quarter to play which I think is a deal! The drinks are strong. The staff is nice. I love the life size Jenga outside!
