The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Made a booking with a group of friends, staff were excellent and the booth was awesome. Got to play all my old favourites on the N64. Nice cocktail list too!

I came down on Friday night, after a little bit of a struggle finding the entrance I have to say it was well worth it! Fantastic vibe, great game choices and hospitable staff (Great conversation, Tess ;) )
Would definitely come here again, but only if she was working hehe.

Been here a few times recently now. Absolutely love it, amazing atmosphere, great games to play and awesome drinks. Love just hanging out with some friends, chilling out and enjoying some old school arcade games. Big thanks to the lovely Tessa behind the bar who made an incredibly tasty Yoshis Island cocktail. Will definetly be back for more! 10/10 A++

Popped in for a couple drinks last week. Staff were friendly and had a good chat with Tessa, didn't stay for long but seemed like a good atmosphere.

Had an awesome time at Bartronica for a unique date night idea with the Mrs - highly recommend for all the retro nerd couples out there!

Huge range of games, ranging from really early arcade machines like Ms Pac-Man & Donkey Kong, through to 90s game machines like Time Crisis and a massive range of pinball machines.

Cool booths with N64 and PlayStation consoles, will definitely book one of those in with a slightly bigger group in future!

Great idea and really well executed :)

Visited during the arvo while on holiday with wife. Staff were excellent, game options great (with a lot being free consoles). Cocktail was well made and on tap beer had good selection. Place has a real nice retro vibe going.

This bar opens at 3PM and is not easily found. There is no prominent signage out the front so look carefully at the doors of places and use google maps to make it easier. Once inside, this is something uniquely different. A bar full of arcade and pinball machines. You buy tokens (at $1 each) from a machine on the wall and these are used to activate games. Great place to spend a few hours if the weather is wet.
