Travel Back To The 80s At Arcadia, A Vintage Arcade Bar In Maine
How do you entertain yourself during a long, cold winter? If you enjoy the social interactions of bars but also love to lose yourself in a good old-fashioned video game, we have good news. At Arcadia National Bar in Portland, you can do both. Grab a beer, order some comfort food, and get lost in a game of Pinball, because once you find this place, you’ll want to stay awhile.
Arcadia National Bar is located on Preble Street in Portland, and it's a bit hard to spot unless you know exactly what you're looking for.
This is the only establishment of its kind in the state, and it's pretty fantastic.
Step inside and you'll see right away why this place is so popular.
Not only are there a ton of pinball machines, but you'll see arcade games you may not have played since the 80s (if ever).
The arcade area is set up casually, with small tables located throughout the space for eating and drinking.
You can also grab a classic board game to play with your friends while you imbibe.
Speaking of imbibing, this place has a full bar -- a very full bar.
If you've ever wondered if your favorite arcade game would have been more fun after a couple of drinks, this is your chance to find out.
In addition to a rotating tap list of beers, Arcadia has a seriously creative cocktail list.
The cocktail menu rotates, and with drink names like Veruca Salt and Rooibos Hagrid, you'll want to try them all.
Hungry? No worries -- this place serves some seriously scrumptious comfort food.
From classic grilled cheese sandwiches to fried avocado tacos and this Meatball and Mozz Stick Sub, there's something for everyone.
Arcadia is open daily at 5 p.m., and they're always open late.
As you can imagine, it's a 21 and over establishment... but your inner child is welcome.
When was the last time you played Pac-Man with a beer in hand?
Here’s your chance.
