If old school arcade games and potent brews are your idea of a rad time, head to this hip North Park hangout and rack up an extra life or two. A warehouse-style space with roll-up industrial doors and and exposed rafters lines its brick walls with '80s-era icons, including Centipede, Space Invaders, Frogger, Mortal Kombat, and other staples of a misspent childhood. A long bar offers 20 craft beers on tap and a surprisingly sophisticated cocktail menu (who knew Donkey Kong fans had such discerning palates?). Gaming-friendly snacks, such as maple-bacon popcorn and sliders, are also available. The bar regularly hosts tournaments (Ms. Pac-Man, rock-paper-scissors), and on the last Sunday of each month, it's free play on all arcade games all day.
