Blipsy Bar

Proudly declaring itself a dive bar, Blipsy Bar is located in the heart of Koreatown and offers a more organic experience than the more upscale bar arcades. It feels like the owners inherited arcade games (like Rampage and Spy Hunter) from an estate sale and decided to make it work. And it totally works. The wells come cheap and easy while you pound away quarters with plenty of room to socialize or get lost for an hour or two (or all night).

Sure, it gets a bit crowded, but when there are classics games like Donkey Kong, Final Fight, Mortal Kombat II, and Ms. Pacman, you won’t mind. The rows of pinball machines will leave you in awe.

Though it may be a trek for some, The One Up in Sherman Oaks is a different kind of bar arcade, because the games are FREE for all customers. With a great variety of finger foods on the menu (corndog pops, avocado summer rolls), it’ll seem like happy hour lasts forever. Resembling Flynn’s Arcade from the film Tron, The One Up is a very cool bar arcade.
