bars for people who like games and arcades

With board games and arcades, a list of bars where fun is literally on the menu


El Destello

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Do you miss the 1980s? This place in Palermo pays homage to the era of arcades, with machines with games like Pac-Man and Street Fighter. For every drink they order, customers get a token.

Calle Gascón, 1460



London, England

At this bar, there are people to teach the rules of each game and waiters to take your orders of cider and craft beer. The neon lighting adds to the gaming atmosphere.

Acton Mews, 337


Ludus Luderia

São Paulo, Brazil

On the suggestive menu, the dishes have famous names, like Jenga fries and the drink Risco Total (the Brazilian answer to Incan Gold). To go with the treats, there are over 900 options of games.

R. Treze de Maio, 972


The Uncommons

NYC, United States

A whole wall is covered in board games: it’s one of the largest collections on the American East Coast. It’s also the first bar with this theme in Manhattan.
