Reviews for The Garage Arcade Bar

Really cool place with an interesting atmosphere. Haven't tried any of the alcohol beverages, but their nonalcoholic stuff is pretty good. They have a lot of decent retro games. The console space is usually pretty busy and some of their star attractions were not working at the time when we visited (NBA Jam, Area 51). We did enjoy our time there though.

The games are free to play but, for me at least, there wasn't much I wanted to play. Most of the games were from the atari era, and only one light gun game. The other modern games they had were NFL blitz '99, TMNT, MK2, and Street Fighter 2. There is an upstairs that has an SNES, N64, and PS3, which was pretty cool. All in all it is a cool place, but not much interest for me.

Awesome and cheap date night idea, they have an upstairs loft where they have a super Nintendo, 64 and a PS3 set up on separate TVs. Old school arcade floor and even cornhole and skeeball. The bartenders are polite and the atmosphere is mellow, music is great and where'd I go when my wife and I want to stay out late.
