Foursquare Tips

  • Run through the bar yelling "We've got a kill screen coming up!"
  • You can't climb up the ladder if you have the hammer in your hand.
  • Save everyone a little grief and read the chalkboard. Those are the only beers available. And no Miller Lite.
  • Just like childhood... But you can have beer while playing arcade games!!!
  • Tapper is the way to go! Awesome bar, check it out.
  • Duck Hunt please. Took a round to get used to the controls again but soon you'll be knocking down ducks & clay discs from the pixel sky. Where's my PowerPad!??
  • Mmm beer and nerds, my two favorite things!
  • The bar is cool, with vintage arcade games, and it's also located in a cool street, with vintage clothes shops
  • Avoid Saturday nights. Too packed to even get to most games, let alone get a drink. Best in the afternoon.
  • VS Mario Bros is eating coins at the moment. But Q*Bert...gold.
  • The night I went the DJ was awesome. A lot of Hipsters and arcade games from back in the day. Pretty cool spot.
  • So many hipsters.
  • Play BurgerTime! 3=D)
  • Double Dragon...pick up the whips and watch out for the Linda prostitute-looking bitches
  • For your favorite machine you prob have to wait a bit. Hit up the other machines. Don't neglect Tron. The bartenders are super informative.
  • Tokens aren't tips, but just try and beat my high score on Ms. Pac Man.
  • Beer & Classic Video Games good crowd.
  • Games and beer. That's fun.
  • Who doesn't love hipsters and arcade games?!?
  • Great beer selection and classic games.
