Good selection of systems/games from various console generations. The drinks were decent and the bartender attentive. It was neat to see a Famicom next to a NES for the mix of east and west. There were about a dozen people in the bar on a...More

Lots of fun, cool spot, great space, friendly owner, however 600-700 for drinks is unfortunate. They just need to find a balance of drink prices vs keeping people there. 400 per drink would be game changer and keep us in the bar all night, as...More

Cool little spot with old school gaming gear, take a cold beer and just hang and try the different games while you dive into sweet nostalgia :)

Sit around and play video games while having a drink... what more could a guy want? No annoying karaoke stuff here, it's all Donkey Kong.

Had a great night here with my partner! It's foreign friendly, drinks are reasonable price, the look of the place is amazing and of course all the cool retro games you can play. It's a little bit small inside but that's Japan! The owner /...More

I have to say this place was a bit of a let-down for me. There is a good variety of games both retro and new but that's truly the only appeal. Everything was sticky and it smelled like someone's dank basement. Their mixed drinks are...More
