Flex your knuckles, gamers: this CBD arcade bar delivers vintage video games, craft beers and cocktails

Wish you could summon your homies and trounce them at Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario Kart, Mortal Kombat, Gun Fight or Fire Escape, while sipping on an ice-cold craft beer or imaginative cocktail? Well now you can, thanks to Bartronica, Melbourne's first vintage arcade bar. Pick from free-play or coin-operated arcade machines, stake out the Nintendo 64 or rest between fighting marathons on the comfy couches dotted around this cavernous, mainly underground space. Bartronica holds singles' nights and fiercely competitive tournaments (the most recent Mario Kart tournament was won on the final turn of the final race); top scores are immortalised (for one night) on the chalk board. There's even a beer garden that pretends it's in New York. Game on.



Address: 335 Flinders Ln
Opening hours: Wed-Sat 4pm-1am
