We know of a spot that's #throwbackthurdsday every day. There's a new arcade bar in Gilbert, Arizona that's one of the coolest places around. Think retro games, boozy drinks, and yummy bar food. It's the ultimate date night idea.
Level 1 Arcade Bar recently opened up a location in downtown where playing games is a must. This spot is strictly for people 21 years and older, however, kids are welcome until 7 p.m. with an adult present.
Although this spot has over 100 games, each month they'll rotate them out, so you might never have to play the same one twice. You can check which ones are currently available here.
Regular machines such as Dragon's Lair, Mortal Kombat, and Pac-Man will cost one token to play whereas pinball machines require four.
You can purchase tokens for $0.25 cents each. This is a great spot to take your SO especially if you both love to play games while being social.
While you're enjoying all the childhood nostalgia, you'll also be able to listen to tunes from the '80s and '90s too. It's a blast into the past.
With fares ranging from fried PB & J and pizza pockets to pork belly tacos, the food will transport you to your childhood too. You can expect to pay anywhere from $6 to $10 for these good eats.
There are over 20 signature cocktails to sip on while you recover from all the fun.
Prices start at $10 and go up to $25 for their Sub Zero 2-player drink which is a hefty mixture of rum, blueberry vodka, blue curacao, basil, lemon, cranberry, and sprite zero.
There's even a Rampage mural on one of the walls. It reportedly took 60-hours to complete!
Whether you're a retro game enthusiast or love hanging out at the newest spots in town, this is a fun place to spend a Friday night.
