I threw a surprise birthday party here on a Saturday night. The games were on free play all night, the bartenders were friendly and made good drinks, and the venue itself had a very cool vibe. We brought in an outside cake and they stored it for us in their fridge until we cut it. Pie Pushers delivered all the food right on time and it was delicious. Pretty much everyone at the party commented on how great and perfect the place was for the party. I definitely plan to go again, and would also recommend the venue for anyone looking to throw a low-key and fun party.

Really cool. Underground...literally. A lot of games to choose from. Better bang for your dollar and the staff is nice. And if pinball is your thing than this is it. Better than Boxcar

We had an event here. The game selection is alright, and we had a good time. It's a good place to hang out with a group.

Was looking for something to do after a concert on a Monday night. This was a gem for the dive bar connoseurs. You do have to look for it and id not for Google I probably would of never found it, especially being in a basement. Pinball machines and classic arcade line up from wall to wall. There are movies being played while you indulge in the drink specials all named from old movies. You will be immersed in the nostalgia of 80s and 90s toys behind the bar as well as some of the older pinballs. The sitting is cushy and the drinks are stout.

Perfect place to end a night out. Small, but good beer and cocktail choices. Some of the games were free, which was awesome. ALSO, the arcade games don't kick you off even if you win the round, unlike some other local bar/arcades.

I really like the arcade games. There's a whole wall of pinball machines and some classic games like Frogger and Tetris. Most of the games are reasonably priced too. You can also change the color of some lights over the pinball wall.
