“Does it get any cooler than this?”
16-Bit Bar + Arcade redefines how a night out is best played. With a name coined from the computer architecture that several of our 40+ vintage arcade games were built on, 16-Bit appeals to those looking for an alternative to the monotonous. From bar-going veterans to young open-minded, beer-centric types, to arcade game novices and enthusiasts, the nostalgic and playful vibe is for players of all types. The time has come to relive your childhood and party like it’s 1999, or 1989 for that matter.
Honestly, this place is truly awesome. Beware though it gets super busy at weekends, the line stretches halfway up the street sometimes.
Genius idea: sell beer. Let customers play nostalgic vidya games for free all night. If only this idea would come to Cincinnati, all would be well in the world.
This may be the coolest bar ever.
This is one of the greatest bars I've ever been to, and it makes me with I lived closer to Columbus. The idea is basically this: let people 21 and over come inside and buy your beer, but then have rows and rows of classic arcade machines free to play. Everyone wins.
If you value your sanity, though, don't go on a weekend. You won't get to play anything.
Top notch beer selection and free arcade games -- I'd call place this a little bit of heaven on earth -- with a couple hundred hipsters.
Really fun bar! Normal beers and drinks with some of their own which is great. Play video games for free... Who wouldn't want to go. Try to go during the weekday if you want to go with a group, it's pretty busy in weekends
Most reviews here cover the rad concept of this place pretty well, but I'd also like to add that they have some awesome 1980's/pop culture inspire cocktails and a good selection of beer. The crowd is usually super good natured, too.
This bar is so fun! Great drinks and enough (free) old school arcade games to satisfy even the most die-hard nerd. Had an absolute blast here.
Amazing place with lots of arcade games for the nerdy in all of us, but it's not really my style. It also shocks me that there's a line for it really really frequently.
Warning this place is 21 and over.
