  • Best memory here: my friend turned on Streetlight Manifesto's Point/Counterpoint on the jukebox. The whole bar started singing. Good drinks, good music, good games. Nothing better.
  • Great cocktails, great staff! Music is a little loud, but how else can you smash a high score?
  • Steven will shake his groove thang for a $1
  • Take me back to my childhood. All I want to do is play arcade games at the mall. Mom! Drop me & my friends off. Love it. And you'll love it too.
  • Pretty fantastic bar-cade that mixes up some stunning bourbon and whiskey concoctions! The classic arcade games are a must to play...from classic Donkey Kong to my all time fave, 4-player X-Men.
  • Best Galaga "fire" button in the city
  • Steven & Brandon are cool guys!
  • Super cool atmosphere. Great staff and really, really awesome cocktails. Illegal Food does the eats and their Hank burger made the Thrillist list of top 5 burgers in Atlanta. 100% worth a visit...
  • Rad management, rad staff. Accommodating, welcoming, wonderful. Viva Joystick Gamebar!!!!
  • NBA Jam is finally here!
  • They have their first pinball machine!
  • Fun, old arcade games, still just a quarter to play. Drinks are cheap.
  • An arcade for grown-ups in Old Fourth Ward. Joystick Gamebar features lively bar bites (via its innovative Kitchen Incubation Program), creative cocktails, and a collection of vintage games.
  • Their beer selection is great and those sofas are perfectly comfortable.
  • Tequila makes it better!
  • This is one of my favorite bars in Atlanta the crowd is a mix of geek and old school. Classic games and creative drinks makes this a great date night location for geeks and gamers alike.
  • Awesome concept, terrible bartenders
  • the okonomiyaki fries are brill!
  • Bar with good cocktails? Check. Great bartenders? Check. Bar with arcade games? Check. Now go and try to beat the high scores!
