Even if you didn’t grow up in the 80s, Coin-Op will take you back to your teenage years - real or imagined. This bar is gigantic and filled with arcade games like Donkey Kong and Frogger, and they have a ton of craft beers and fun cocktails, too. The kitchen stays open until 1am, which means that you can do what you could never do as a kid - stay up way passed your bedtime, play video games, and eat snacks. Split some chicken wings with your friends, but maybe wash your hands before going back to playing Galaga. If you really want to take the video game experience to the next level, get reservations at their hidden bar upstairs called The Grid.
