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.

    Drinks and games!
    What a hidden gem in Prague! We only knew about this bar due to Honest Guides on YouTube and we're so glad we went. There are a good range of drinks, we had beers and cocktails, for a good price. There are a good range of arcade games, most are 10czk and there is a machine to change notes into coins so you can play. There are coat hangers and lots of tables so you can relax in between games. We loved it here!

    An awesome experience for pinball fans!
    We’re huge pinball fans from the UK with a keen interest in playing and repairing machines, who came on a couples’ break to Prague. Finding the Joystick Arcade Bar was a delight as it has a great selection of pinball machines, including some more rarely-seen titles, for about 20kr (70p) a game. The bar itself has an edgy underground vibe with retro arcade graffiti. A limited selection of beer and slightly more expensive than other places, but - as this is Prague - the beer is good.

    Great fun with quality cheap beer
    Spent around 90mins here playing all the pinball machines which were from the late 90s early 2000. Cost was about 35p a go. Beer was about 2 quid a pint. Cash only. It does look a bit seedy at night going down the alleyway, but I felt very safe (as I did all over prague). Yes, the toilets are not good, but not all places are perfect. Worth a visit

    Amazing Gaming bar
    Superb night when came to this place. Loved the games on offer, had something for everyone and great drinks on offer. Location a little tucked away but when you find it, it’s worth it! Definitely a place to go to when in Prague for night out!

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.

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.

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.
