    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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...

    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.
