Meet The Gamers
Hello, we’re Adam and Anna! More importantly, we are Asheville locals, beer lovers and self-proclaimed video game wizards.
Adam’s favorite is the newest pinball or any Mega Man he happens to be playing and Anna’s favorite is the Tales from the Crypt pinball. We both have a lifelong passion for video games, new and old, and decided to take on a new business venture knowing there was no better path than starting our very own arcade bar.
We initially started on this voyage in 2009 when Adam visited Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade in Portland. Fast forward to 2013 when we both visited Barcade in Philadelphia. At that time, we knew that every downtown needed an arcade bar and in spite of all the uncertainty in the world, we moved into the 79 Coxe Ave. location in downtown Asheville in June 2020.
Play With Us
So, come on in and stake out your cabinet. With over 30 arcade games and pinballs and 300 original console games to choose from, you can set a new high score on your own or duke it out with new or old friends. If the screens get too bright, settle down at the bar. By unifying a unique selection of 16 craft beers on tap with the nostalgia and social activity of old-school gaming, this is an experience you will not find anywhere else in downtown.
