Play vintage games at this top-notch bar in Sweet Auburn
Head to Joystick Gamebar to nerd out over the incredible selection of arcade games. With arcade classics, tabletop gaming, and a loaded bar, you’re guaranteed an awesome night. They even have video game nights on occasion for those looking to play Super Smash Bros, or find new gamer friends.
There’s beer on draft and by the can, including Georgia’s own Line Creek Brewing, Sweet Water, Orpheus Brewing, and more! If you feel like something stronger, there’s also a crafty cocktail selection. Try out their Banana Old Fashioned for a plantain twist on the cocktail staple.
The real stars of the drinks menu are their two alcoholic slushies, to create that authentic arcade feel! Although these will pack a punch, much larger than the sugar rush you had as a kid. The Watermelon Smash is a real hoot!
The games available at the hip space include Crazy Taxi, Tekken Tag, Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat, and more! However, these vintage machines require lots of care, so respect is compulsory, and don’t be disappointed if your favorite game is out of order.
There’s a new outdoor seating which is perfect when the sun is shining, and plenty of gaming stations and seats to spread out the crowd.
