So still on our crawl and went into this place. Odd place, younger crowd ( 20 somethings). Full of video games from the 80 and 90s. Had a good selection of beer and wine and canned drinks. I was disappointed in NO hard drinks. So not a bad place but not my kind of place.

A number of good classic arcade games: Tron, Mario Brothers, Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, and more. Beer selection is small, but decent. Fun blast from the past.

So fun! All of the old arcade games from the 1980s--Donkey Kong, Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, Defender, Dig-Dug, Centipede, Asteroids, and more. And still only a quarter to play! Pinball, too! Full bar! It's like my '80s dream come true! If video games aren't your thing, they have a large selection of board games to play. People at the... More

Can there be a cooler idea? Old video games (the 25 cent type) and adult beverages! A great place for a date, or just to hang out with the friend. I can't believe every city doesn't have 10 of these.

Last time I was in an arcade, I was too young to drink. Now, I can enjoy a porter and relive some of the games of my youth. Thanks Spacebar!

Boise has a lot of places that serve high quality food and drink. However, if you're a little unconventional, geeky, adventerous, and enjoy casual settings this is the place for you. There is a small variety of pinball and arcade games, console games (GameCube, N64, and Atari for example), tabletop and boaed games. Weeknights there are pre-arranged game nights, to... More

I went in the late afternoon and there were only a few people in the place but really enjoyed seeing and playing the retro video games. They are only 25c! I didn't really partake in the beverage but other reviews say this is good as well. Worth the visit.
