5 Best Arcade Bars in San Francisco

July 13, 2018

Coin-Op Game Room

2 floors of your favorite arcade games, from The Simpsons to Time Crisis, plus great food and cocktails, Coin-Op is a must stop located in SoMa. The collection of games is impressive and one can only consider installed cup holders on arcade games as thoughtful.

How to get there: Muni lines T or N, exit Caltrain

Nearest Trinity apartments: Trinity Place apartments



brewcade bar

Yelper William I.

Smaller and more of a dive bar feel, Brewcade is just off the Church Muni station and offers a great beer selection. Famous for projecting games of Mario Kart on their wall, stop by and enjoy food delivered from neighboring restaurant Botellon or food trucks just outside (select dates).

Nearest Trinity apartments: 230 & 240 Dolores apartments



emporium sf

Yelper Theresa C.

This place is huge. And brand new. Located in the heart of Divisadero near The Independent and Nopa, the Emporium is one-of-a-kind. In what used to be the historic Harding Theater, this arcade bar features a sprawling space over 4 floors, 50+ arcade games and even DJ sets. This is an arcade bar and a little more.

How to get there: Muni line N, exit Duboce Park, short walk from there



spin sf

Yelper Sf. G.

Not exactly an arcade bar, Spin offers a hip and trendy space for fun games of ping pong with friends. An inspiring design featuring art walls and chic lounge seating, reserve a space today and make it a night to remember.

Urban Putt

Also not an arcade bar but a 14-hole indoor mini golf course with a bar in the Mission? Sign us up. Designed with the Bay Area in mind, you’ll ooh and aww at the Transamerica windmill and miniature Victorian homes on the holes! And yes, you can drink on the course but only Sunday through Wednesday. Unfortunately not on Friday or Saturday.

How to get there: just a few blocks from the 24th street BART station
