I went downtown with some friends after a graduation. Some of us were going to drink and others not. We decided that Play would be a good place to fit that balance. It has some retro games like pinball, house of the dead, terminator, air...More

The games are out of order most of the time. If you go on a weekday it's fine, but it's way too crowded on the weekends. The last time I was there a fight almost broke out because a girl beat some guy at air...More

Play is a very unique bar because it is an arcade for adults! The games are fun and the drinks are good. Order the King koopa!

Has a great time playing games, especially the Simpsons pinball and Monster Bash pinball. Nice place to hang out and drink. Had kind of a weird smell and you have to walk up stairs, but no big deal.

Excellent idea to have a bar and throwback video arcade against the backdrop of the fast paced life in downtown Pensacola. Atmosphere brings many memories of the old days and great bar staff to back it up. Highly recommend.

This is located right downtown near other bars and restaurants and they have video games, sports games, skee ball, etc. It is a bar but filled with games and no children allowed. Wonderful place
