Revisit The Glory Days At This 80s-Themed Bar In Cleveland

Get ready to party like it’s 1989, because we’re taking a trip back in time – and you won’t even have to leave Cleveland! Do you remember the good old days spent in the arcade with a pocket full quarters and a joyful group of friends? Many of us do, and Cleveland was an incredibly fun place to grow up in the 1980s. There’s one bar in Cleveland that will take you back to that era with an unforgettable ambiance and old-school cocktails.

Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, this location in Cleveland closed its doors in 2021. It will be reopening in Ohio City as Pins Mechanical Co. later in the year. While you’re waiting for the new location, check out The Corner Alley for a bit of fun. 

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

16-Bit Bar + Arcade is located at 15012 Detroit Ave. in Lakewood, with other locations in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dublin as well. We’re lucky to have one nearby and it’s too close to home not to pay it a visit!

For more information, including a full list of the arcade games, a peek at the menu, and details about upcoming special events, visit the 16-Bit Bar + Arcade website here and follow along on Facebook here.
