Had a coupon for this place and I’m sure glad i popped in. Great concept, craft beer and free old school arcades. Awesome place. Had lots of fun. Beers are mostly of good quality and people here seem like they enjoy their job so that makes it a great spot to hang out with people.

The best of the arcade bars in the city. Unique selection of beer with weird and random ticks you won’t see elsewhere. This place is also huge with an absurd number of games, which are all FREE. The downside? Its in Wrigelyville so lots of young d-bags here.

Neat concept and certainly not the first arcade with good beer that I’ve been to but this is still a pretty new concept. They recently expanded to another room with pinball machines and such but I guess that side isn’t open on certain days. The other side is open seven days a week and has a fairly eclectic beer selection. The friend that I went with theorized that they just buy the stuff from the distributor that doesn’t sell and is discounted. We had a round and played some classics from the NES days. Definitely a must at least once in your life, but if you don’t care about the arcade games then it probably isn’t worth your time.

For some reason everyone was dressed well. It was strange. And what you get for free with the machines you pay for in increased beer prices.

I was at a press preview for their expanded all-pinball section (next door, in the former Uncle Fatty’s) in May, and the room still wasn’t finished, and the original section was closed off because of our special event. But the focus here is on beer and the pinball. A lot of machines in this room, all on free play. I think the oldest there was the classic "Addams Family" movie tie-in. The video games in the main room are much more "vintage-y," with old school stuff like "Centipede" or "Dig-Dug." A killer selection of bottled/canned beer, but I don’t think this room had taps up yet. Did I mention free pinball?
