Very noisy because of all the video games and especially the basketball one. Not really surprising. Dark insides. Not much in the way of seating beyond the main long table. A decent beer selection but not that huge or out of this world. Basically, this is a good beer bar with pinball and other video games. Good, but not great. Not the best version of the arcade bar I’ve seen, either.

Big focus on arcade games in this place. Quite noisy but the beer list is kinda nice. We had a few beers, but then moved on to a more quiet place.

A cool place with 30 taps of great beer and loads of arcade games. Loud, noisy and packed with crowd on a Thursday night visit.

Such a cool idea that this place with so many great arcade games also has a good tap list. If you are in North Park then it’s a cool place to visit. The games are fun and drinking while playing the games is a good experience. However, not a lot of seating of table space so not such a great place for just enjoying a beer. Compared to other places in San Diego the number of Taps and tap list is not very unique but compared to anywhere else it is an awesome choice of beers. Great place and environment overall

If nothing else, this is just a bad ass idea for a bar. A lot of old school arcade games and some pinball. And booze.

Full bar as well as beers, so you can get as out of control as you really feel like. It’s not a beer destination, but lots of good stuff from the likes of Alpine, Societe, Hess, Modern Times, Lost Abbey, Societe, etc. Solid.

If you’re not into video games, then you might not like it. But it’s a fun place and having a few drinks and playing some NFL Blitz is pretty neat.

Visited on Wednesday 12/11/14, located on 30th Street just a stones throw from Toronado. As the name suggests the venue is laden with old arcade games around the back and right hand side walls, bar to the left. There’s also a patio out back containing yet more games! The place was a little too loud, even at 4pm, just like Toronado - shit 80’s music! Tap selection was solid, 20+ on, Alpine Hoppy Birthday - say no more! Again, another minus for me - full pints only! Service was prompt and friendly, not too busy during our visit, maybe 10 other folks in. Check out the lemon popcorn dispenser - good shit! We had a few grazing snacks to share, fries and the like, Ok but not mind blowing. Overall, worth dropping by, some solid choices on tap but not somewhere I’d want to hang around for too long.

Great fun place that is packed with arcade games and has a pretty big bar on one side that has a pretty solid selection of craft beer. Very friendly service and get pretty busy at night, just down the road from tornado! Great place to check out and honestly at a time when everybody is serving craft beer these guys have differentiated themselves! Well Done!

New bar next door to Toronado SD. Large tap list focusing on local micros with an affinity so far for Ironfire, which is nice. Hess offerings on tap as well are a bit hard to find elsewhere. Other than that, this is a solid craft beer and craft cocktail focused bar that is stuffed with arcade games. Great service, fun vibe. Definitely worth dropping in if you are at Toronado. The food here looked really good as well. Saw some people ordering late night funnel cake with cocoa nibs and honey.
