Is there anything the folks at Area Four can't do? Since 2011 they have been devoted to bringing the very best in food, cocktails and fun to the residents of Boston and its surrounding areas.
Their latest venture is a 90's themed arcade/bar serving everybody's favorite comfort food, gourmet grilled cheese!
A4cade opened on January 28, 2017 to a crowd of ecstatic thirty and forty-somethings looking to relive the pop culture of their glory days.
The giant arcade area features vintage games like Miss Pacman, Tetris and NBA Jam as well as pinball machines based on The Simpsons, Ghostbusters (the 80's Bill Murray classic) Star Wars, and all other manner of geekdom.
Don't forget to purchase an official A4cade fanny pack to hold your tokens and tickets!
Once you've worked up an appetite nerding out over the Game of Thrones pinball machine, head up front to the Roxy's Grilled Cheese counter for a hot dog, Green Muenster Melt, truffle fries, tater tot poutine or a classic New England frappe.
If arcading isn't your idea of a bodacious time, A4cade also offers shuffleboard, foosball, and much more.
The nostalgic fun does not stop with the entertainment and food. The decor is bright and colorful with wistful touches like Classic Nintendo beer taps, vintage plastic lunchboxes and themed drinkware.
Guests can enjoy their cocktails from R2D2, Deathstar and Minion-shaped glasses - all topped with twisty straws and various delightfully tacky paraphernalia.
A4cade was recently named one of the Top 35 Bars in Boston by Boston Magazine - in the Fun & Games category, of course!
If you are tired of staring at a television screen - or eachother - while you drink, give A4cade a try next weekend. Your inner child will thank you!
