Have been a few times, love chatting with Lisa! The drinks are good, great selection and the people are awesome! DND groups, smash and street fighter tournaments along with switches and Playstations available to play at the bar or at small tables nearby.

I adore this place! Currently I live in Chapel Hill but every time I come back to Durham Bad Machines is always a destination. The atmosphere is great, the staff is amazing, and you always feel welcomed! If you are looking for a place to hang that caters to all this is the place. Also I highly recommend checking out their in house drinks.

Super cool spot. Bartender was awesome, fun games, good beer selection. If I could leave more than five stars, I would.

I came to My Bad Machines during an Offline pre-opening event. It was a lot of fun! They have some arcade machines, pinball, and consoles set up. The space itself has a cool aesthetic and is cozy. There cocktails were alright - they have these "potion" drinks and you can get a flight of them. Next time I'd probably just stick to one drink. Excited to see how their cocktail menu progresses.

What a great , great, place to compete in real and competitive gaming sport. After competition and during a nice drink will be your reward for the effort. Let the games begin.

Incredibly friendly staff, actually good tasting video game riff based drinks and a cozy atmosphere. There’s multiple tvs with streams playing in the background so you can pick your poison. Definitely coming back as I’m pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it here.
