The Andersonville outpost of the Boystown beer-and-bourbon arcade bar adds food to the mix, with burgers, brunch and more to fuel your retro gaming. The bar runs down the center of the space, though it's just one-sided—the other side of its rear wall is lined with video game consoles. The extensive beer list (26 rotating drafts listed on giant chalkboards over the bar) and even bigger collection of bourbons are the reasons to visit, other than getting it on like Donkey Kong, of course. Service was a little terse on a recent visit, but the space is inviting and the games are free.

This has become my go to Tuesday happy hour hang out because of their bourbon, burger and beer promo! Great atmosphere especially during the summer when the windows are open. Low key vibes. Most importantly, good food and drinks!


Not a drinker but I definitely go for the food and stay for the atmosphere!

A great addition to the Andersonville neighborhood. A combination of a sports bar and arcade spot with the flare of the neighborhood, it's a place you can spend all day. The first thing you see when you walk in is either the old school arcade games (most are free!) or the giant chalk board with the craft beer list. The bar lay out is great keep the games and sitting sections separate and easy to walk through. Huge retractable windows and a patio on the sidewalk makes it a great place for the summer as well!


As for the food, it's an upscale play on your classic sports bar food. My favorite items were the pork belly appetizer and the cubano sandwich which is one of my favorites in the city (a recommendation from my waiter). The beer list is always rotating, and a great selection of whiskey too! The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the number of young kids that were there but I should've expected that with the neighborhood it's in and the arcade games. All in all, it's a great place to go with a group of friends on the weekend.

The trend of bar arcades continues its sprawl across the city, but Replay has been a welcome addition to the neighborhood (plus I'm glad I don't have to make my way down to the Boystown outpost any more). Good selection of old school games make this a fun spot for a night of drinking with friends.
