This place has many different beers and a few wines in addition to the classic arcade and Nintendo games. Coin is only necessary metaphorically. You give them your card and they give you an RFID card to pay for the drinks and games. When you want a beer, you simply place your card in the card holder on the screen and use the tap to dispense your drink. On the arcade games the RFID sensors are located where you would expect the coin slots to be. Unfortunately, this place has become very popular, but some folks like big crowds. Besides, the place feels chic, and the prices are still reasonable. There is a maximum amount that can be charged to a card. The limit is pretty high for a single person, but if you are sharing one RFID card among a group, then the limit will probably be insufficient. Finally, the crowd that comes here now is mainly comprised of people in their 20s and 30s (both women and men), and they are nice. I think that has something to do with the large angry-looking men who work there, ensuring that everyone stays nice. This place is a good choice for a Friday night. Don't expect much in the way of food though.

While the beer selection is more than one could ask for, the selection of games leaves something to be desired. More modern games would be nice as they have plenty of retro ones to feed your nostalgia. The self serve concept is fun for sure but the prices mean you wont drink much. Luckily there are other bars within walking distance to keep the party going when your wallet taps out. Very friendly service at the front desk.

Fun, fun, fun! The self pouring beer is cool! Especially if you go on a discount night like Thursday. We were able to drink amazing delicious stouts that were 8% for only $3 a glass. Love the ease of the games and the drinks being on one card.
