Great for Boise

It is so great to have a local Pinball/ video arcade to stop by at during the day or evening. Nice beverage options and a cool fun atmosphere.

If you are in Boise and like old arcade games, then this is definitely a fun bar to hang out at. One complaint is that they don't have a full bar, only beer and wine. The other complaint is that they don't have a huge selection of games. That's why I give it a 4 out of 5. Still fun... More

Came here for trivia night and had a blast! Loved playing all of the old arcade games and interacting with people for the fun trivia games. The alcohol is reasonably priced as well. I could keep going but I know you all stopped reading at reasonably priced alcohol.

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.

This place is a wonderful place to kick back and relax. Enjoy a calm atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of Boise bars. They have all the classic arcade games as well as board games.

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!
