You Can Play Nintendo & Arcade Games For Free At A Nostalgic Houston Gamer Bar

It doesn't get much better than Nintendo and beer.
It's Free To Play At This Houston Video Game Bar

Nothing beats the nostalgic memories of playing video and board games with your siblings or friends as a kid. Whipping out the Nintendo 64 and playing Mario Party on a Sunday morning while eating sugary cereal was the ultimate success as a kid. In Houston, there's a video game bar that brings back those childhood vibes but better because you can play video games for free while you sip on a soda or beer.

Neil's Bahr in Downtown Houston is a gaming bar that brings major nostalgia to its visitors with a bar full of arcade games, board games, a wall full of comic books, and TVs with old Nintendo games.

The best part is that the arcade games and consoles are both totally free to play. You don't need to rent them out or insert coins like other arcades.

Neil's is the coolest Houston dive bar with '90s vibes. You can even watch The Simpsons on their projector while playing Mario Kart 64 with your friends. 

If Sega and Nintendo games aren't really your thing, however, there are also board games like Jenga and a huge Connect 4 for you to get rowdy with.

There are also ping pong tables if you're into more physical games. Literally any kind of throwback game you want to play, this bar will most likely have it.

However, if you don't like gaming at all, there's a whole library of comic books that you can choose to read from!

The bar has a dog-friendly patio if you feel like taking Fluffy with you on your night out.

You can also get your munchies fix at this spot since the bar has a chef who whips up different yummy eats. It's always better when you can snack between rounds of Super Smash Bros.

The bar is open from Sunday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Neil's is one of the few Houston bars that reminds you of your childhood and it is the perfect place to go to grab a drink and play old games with your friends. Some may argue it's even better than the '90s since now you enjoy a game with a beer in hand!
