The area
Address
Neighborhood: Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.

A little difficult to find, we walked around, tried the door indicated and it was locked. We were about to walk away when we tried the door ten metres away and it opened with a sign pointing downstairs to the actual arcade.
It's actually a bar with good priced beers and lots (40ish) of older arcade machines, the ones 50 year olds (me!) remember well. Packman era. We changed a couple of notes at the bar when ordering drinks and could have stayed there for hours. You find an old favourite. My daughter played Ms Pacman for the first time in her life and was plaesed to get 5000 points, my wife had a go, even my son had a go...then I showed them the old magic and first time got about 32000 points. The secret always was to forget the little pills and only eat the magic big pills when the four baddies were chasing you, then catch them when they are blue. Once learned never forgotten :)
If you just want a beer, loads of sofa's to sit at and you will be with locals, not tourists. GREAT FUN, highly recommended. Initially discovered on "HONEST PRAGUE" and their youtube videos are well worth watching before you go to Prague.

If you are in to a little ruff areas with street art and a young vibe this is a place for you. Finding it was a bit of an adventure in itself. We entered from the wrong side and came in to some derelict parking lot with graffiti. Really cool actually. Finding the right way there was even more cool graffiti on the outside and inside. Nice pinball machines and really nice and friendly staff. A lot of 90s arcade games as well.
Great place to hang out for a while.
Oh yeah, they serve beer.

90’s vibe right in the Prague’s city center. Arcades brings me back to my childhood and the bar is full of every type of alcohol you can imagine. The bartender Fanda can mix every single cocktail in very professional way and the place is usually full of young and beautiful girls. I guess just because of him.
10 of 10 for many great parties I’ve had there.

The place was easy find using google maps and it's pretty centrally located it's only like a 5 minute walk from the high street.

The drinks and good and the prices are reasonable. The machines are 10Kc and 20Kc for the pinball ones which is cheap.

If you're into your arcade games I'd recommend popping down but there isn't much of a variation of machines, I've been to similar places in the UK and one in Krakow and they all had a lot more availability.

The staff are friendly too which is a bonus, I'm glad I went it's a good place to kill an hour.

Beer and gaming, great way to spend the evening. Amazing selection of games to fill your time and bring back memories and great selection of beers on tap. This one is out the way in a random shopping mall but don’t let it fall you, this place is a hidden gem.

Cool dingy underground bar with a pac mac game (amongst many others!). Make sure you take change for the games.

Place is hard to find and would require some updating. The bar area is ok but if you come here for the arcade, slightly dissapointed as they are not well maintain and 4 of 7 machine we tried were not working :( Good place to hang out but there are a lot much better place to unwind and drink or hang out in Prague so probably wont be coming back here in the near future.

Though the only one - one rarely finds arcade bars. This one nails it with old classics such as Pump It Up fiesta 2, time crisis 2, MK’s and many more.

Great place to have fun, chill or play.

We looked for something to do on an evening somewhere close and found this bar. It has a very nice concept. It was cool going back in time and playing with all the old arcade games from our childhood. It has a very good vibe to it, I would recommend anyone who's looking for a bar in Prague to go by this one.
