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.

Always have extra and excellent service here
This place is on the way home for me and a couple women from work
So we often make an excuse (not very hard to convince me!) to stop by Friday after work.
Or as they say

Great bar lots of old school games for everyone to enjoy but can't lie our favorite is the taxi game takes me back to the dream cast.
Also the beer is not over priced like most places and neither are the games.
Bring friends and family you won't regret it.

This bar was so cool! I stopped in when I was passing through Durham on a road trip, and originally planned to go to the bar across the street if I'm being honest. I'm glad I changed my mind, as this place was way more up my alley!
It's a fully stocked bar that can make and serve whatever drink you have in mind. However the real draw is the arrangement of pinball tables and arcade cabinets! They had all sorts of classic and modern tables to play including my favorite; No Good Gofers!
It's a shame I was only passing through. I'd love if my local town had a similar place!

Cute little Arcaide a tad to dark 4 my taste. I like a well lit area. But it has a cool pinball game!

I can't say enough good things about this place. Everything I want in a local dive bar. Literally underground. Chock full of Durham flavor. Consistantly good local DJs on the weekends. Always excellent beer selections and drink specials. Free Play on video games all day Sundays, Mondays, and Tuesdays.
