Stacked with more than twenty arcade classics from the eighties and nineties, this LES haunt emanates old-school nostalgia. Here, gamers can reminisce while ordering craft beers, forties, wines, and sakes from their perch at the bar (which, incidentally, has dirty pictures of gaming characters on it), or eagerly convert dollar bills to play 25-cent rounds of Frogger, Pacman, Tetris, Paperboy, and more. Should you make a night of it: Movies are projected onto the back wall, and those hungry post-gaming can purchase hot dogs from a grill and pizza from under a heat lamp, to fully round out the experience.
