CityCade Arcade Bar
- Open Now

I finally got a chance to check this place out. Most of the barcades are in Charlotte so it's nice to have one close to home. I went on a Thursday night which is "guys night" and was welcomed as soon as I walked in, both the owners and the guests were very friendly. For Thursdays, about all games were free (at least for dudes) except for pinball, which were .50 a game. Normally it's $5 a person for unlimited play and pinball is $1.00 a game (ouch to $1.00 pinball!). There were maybe 6 to 12 people rotating in and out while I was there, so not crowded at all. Parking was abundant. It's about a 5 minute walk from Freeman's. Bar can turn cash to quarters or can give you quarters from your bar tab for a 10% surcharge. Bar had food and drinks at fair prices. There are 2 gender neutral restrooms. There are a few TV's playing sports and comic book movies and YouTube videos. Place was open until midnight on a weeknight which was cool. There was one tv hooked up to a Nintendo 64 with a pretty large assortment of games. There were a couple party/board games sitting near a table. There was a fairly large area for outdoor seating as well. I think what made this visit special was how friendly the owners and guests were, felt like you were just visiting old friends instead of strangers.
Amazing and fun little establishment. Went for both my friends birthdays and they had a blast. Drink selection is simple, but good and they are open to drinks that you want made. Fantastic games, I feel like I am five again, dig dug, the original Sonic and Mario, Street Fighter, Pac-Man, and many more! Go try it out and never to busy either.
Excellent Game selection! Byron and his crew rock!
So happy to provide this venue to all of you.
Love love love thus place!!! Everything we go we have a blast and truly enjoy the atmosphere. Yesterday was awesome for Halloween and there was a costume contest as well
