Last month we shared with our readers the little-known gem of Binghamton that is
Robot City Games, an arcade with a hundred different vintage games that visitors of all ages get a kick out of. If reading our article sparked an interest in discovering what other incredible arcades are hidden around the state of New York, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. Make the trip to Rochester and discover why this historic building is now not only a delicious destination but one that’s a lot of fun as well.
In a building that dates all the way back to 1890 and has even been a church and a theater in the past, Rochester's Swillburger restaurant is a tasty treat that's hiding in plain sight.
From the outside, The Playhouse & Swillburger still looks like a church but once you're inside you'll see that the space has been completely transformed into something much more modern.
Featuring over 30 arcade games, Swillburger takes us back to the good old days and even requires you to use these gold coins to play games - no modern quarters accepted in these cabinets!
From vintage arcade games that have been around for ages to more modern takes on these timeless treasures that include spins like Game of Throne and The Walking Dead-themed pinball games.
Let's not be too quick to forget though that Swillburger
is a restaurant, and the food is something you can't miss out on focusing on.
Since opening in recent years, Swillburger has won over the city of Rochester with their juicy burgers, locally-sourced buns, and gourmet tater tots that come in different varieties each week.
The drink selection at Swillburger is also out-of-this-world, creating the ultimate dining experience for anyone who comes here.
Inside you'll quickly see that the space is larger than you might have previously imagined, with seating downstairs as well as upstairs.
The advantage of sitting upstairs? You'll get to overlook the main dining area, funky bar, and people playing games!
While Swillburger is certainly a family-friendly restaurant that guests of all ages love to enjoy, you also might be excited to hear that after 10 p.m. only visitors that are 21 years or older are allowed to hang out here - turning the space into an adult playground.
Open every day of the week, come see what it's like to dine in a restaurant that has a whole room full of your favorite arcade games at The Playhouse & Swillburger in Rochester.
