It was nice to have a good draft beer while playing with the games of my childhood. They have all the old consoles of NIntento, Sega, etc. Very good time for the nostalgic.

Ok, if there's one thing that must be done here, it's trying their pickle shot! Sound nasty? It's amazing. After, play some Nintendo video games and grab a few more pickle shots. Done.

8-bit was a pretty good (mostly) retro gaming bar that has a wide selection of video game systems from older generations. There are even newer systems (people were playing FIFA on the Xbox One and Mario Kart on the newer Nintendo console). The beer was...More

The facility inside 8-Bit is very nice. This place is well-equipped. They have more than half a dozen CRT (old school) televisions with a wide assortment of retro game consoles, including N64, Sega Genesis, Super Nintendo, and more. The beer is excellent as well, including...More

Local, impeccably clean, friendly place with an attentive bar owner where you can play Street Fighter VS X-Men while drinking a cold draft. Kind of exactly what you need. It's easy to find and a lot of fun even if you're not playing video games....More

If you're thumbs have made a full recovery from the severe bruising of 90's gaming, sort your life out, don a Tanooki Suit and head to 8-Bit for a much needed 1up. Play on a Snes, Nes, N64, Megadrive and an arcade machine all rammed...More

If you're looking for something more than streetfood, hutongs and aimlessly wandering around Houhai or Tiananmen, then a visit to 8-bit is well-worth your time. Who doesn't love hanging out with their friends, drinking cheap beer / shots / specialty drinks, playing all of their...More

Button mashing and liver bashing go together like peas and carrots. This is something I've known for some time, being a closet alcoholic and out-of-the-closet gamer. And this is why I love 8-Bit; There's nothing quite so liberating as necking skittles vodka shots while your...More
