Joystick Gamebar -- the only spot in Atlanta dedicated to classic arcade games and delicious cocktails. Every game is only a quarter so raid your son's piggy bank and hold off on laundry an extra week because you've got beer to drink and high scores to conquer!
Arcade games, cocktails, bartenders
Fun, old arcade games, still just a quarter to play. Drinks are cheap.
Dolly Parton pinball machine, ftw.
Cheap (and delicious) cocktails and ARCADE GAMES! Great spot.
Cowboy and Indians
Nice place to go with a group of people, not expensive and good vibe. Eat before you go, food cheap and good but little portion.
This is one of my favorite bars in Atlanta, I love the retro games, craft cocktails, and the burgers.
Great games. Go before dinner to avoid the crowds. If you're not using John Stockton and Karl Malone on NBA Jam you're doing it wrong.
Great place to hang out and play some old school arcade video games. They also have a selection of fun board games to play. The drinks are decently priced and they have some special cocktails.
Great craft beers that rotate. Lots of local crafts. Very unique drink selections in general
So much greatness!!
An arcade for grown-ups in Old Fourth Ward. Joystick Gamebar features lively bar bites (via its innovative Kitchen Incubation Program), creative cocktails, and a collection of vintage games.
VIDEOGAMES!!!!! Classics, pinball machines and rare board games. So much good.
Has pure old school video games. Bring your roll of quarters, throw back a couple of libations and shoot for the high scores.
Cheap drinks and old school arcade games
Their beer selection is great and those sofas are perfectly comfortable.
Tequila makes it better!
This is one of my favorite bars in Atlanta the crowd is a mix of geek and old school. Classic games and creative drinks makes this a great date night location for geeks and gamers alike.
Try out the indie game 'Castle Kong' while you're there. It's free to play while it's still in development.
Love! But don't come hungry! Sometimes they sometimes they don't offer ANY food. No RedBull, little vodka, few draft beers, decent whiskey collection, cheap large can beers. Games n atmosphere awesome
Awesome concept, terrible bartenders
Great 80's and 90's music too!
Pretty fantastic bar-cade that mixes up some stunning bourbon and whiskey concoctions! The classic arcade games are a must to play...from classic Donkey Kong to my all time fave, 4-player X-Men.
Metal slug is delicious.
the okonomiyaki fries are brill!
Bar with good cocktails? Check. Great bartenders? Check. Bar with arcade games? Check. Now go and try to beat the high scores!
Super cool atmosphere. Great staff and really, really awesome cocktails. Illegal Food does the eats and their Hank burger made the Thrillist list of top 5 burgers in Atlanta. 100% worth a visit...
This place is amazing!!!
Best memory here: my friend turned on Streetlight Manifesto's Point/Counterpoint on the jukebox. The whole bar started singing. Good drinks, good music, good games. Nothing better.
Take me back to my childhood. All I want to do is play arcade games at the mall. Mom! Drop me & my friends off. Love it. And you'll love it too.
They have their first pinball machine!
Best Galaga "fire" button in the city
Rad management, rad staff. Accommodating, welcoming, wonderful. Viva Joystick Gamebar!!!!
Great cocktails, great staff! Music is a little loud, but how else can you smash a high score?
NBA Jam is finally here!
Steven & Brandon are cool guys!
Steven will shake his groove thang for a $1
