If you've got that sneaking suspicion that you were born 20 or 30 years too late ... if you are a child of the '80s and want to relive your childhood ... if on the weekends all you want is a bar that lets you play arcade games to your heart's content ... if your favorite movie is either Tron or 1989's The Wizard, starring Fred Savage ... get your ass to 16-Bit in downtown Lakewood. The arcade bar emerged on the scene a couple of years back and has locations around the state now. It's got more than 40 classic arcade games on the floor: Galaga, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, Asteroid Deluxe, NBA Jam ... all the greats. With a nice assortment of local brews and a lengthy "classic cocktail" menu, 16-Bit truly is the retro watering hole we all deserve.
