After walking around downtown Traverse City, we came across the Coin Slot with its inviting outdoor patio and food truck and restaurants. We couldn't resist so had to go inside and select from its large selection of beer (in cans), hard seltzers, and other offerings before finding seats to sit and relax and people watch. Lots of food choices. Pet friendly. Arcade games inside. Nice place to chill in the sun!!

Looking for a little vintage fun? The Coin Slot offers classic gaming with plenty of pinball and arcade games to choose from.

It’s geared towards adults as they have a full selection of canned beers, ciders, and mixed drinks that you can enjoy while playing games.

Come back as they rotate games in and out from their collection. Frogger anyone?

What a cool idea. The old games are more than just novelty, they are operable and a lot of fun. Great place to spend a rainy afternoon.

Loved the live bands here-great outdoor atmosphere. Went two nights in a row. Staff was friendly and loved that they had a water station inside.

This place it legit and has all the makings of a mall arcade from the 80s. It can get pretty crowded in there - and has so games that you want to play.

We had little time but did see the food offering in the back with pizza/snacks/ drinks and Beer upfront. Also pinball in a separate room if you’re into that sort of thing....

Visited the coin slot kind of by accident but walked in and new we would stay. Beer, old school arcade games and a cool food truck. Better for kids over 6. Worth a stop even if only for an hour just for the nostalgia! So glad we got to show our kids what real arcade games are!

Me, wife, and six year old son, hung out at the Coin Slot yesterday and had a blast. (I’m writing this review to correct misinformation in the review below.) Coin Slot is all ages, under eighteen accompanied by an adult until 9pm. 21 and over after 9pm.

It’s eight dollars per hour, per person to play any game. Pinball machines are seperate from the arcade and aren’t included in the $8 per hour flat fee.

The bar area is also separated from the arcade. Great way to kill and hour or two.

A great place to go for pinball lovers, or groups of people looking to enjoy classic arcade games. The unlimited wristband is what I recommend, go early and stay late. They also now have Workshop beer on tap, a local microbrewery.

Excellent place to stop with a large group of kids aged 8ish-teens. They have cornhole (“bags”) outside and arcade games inside. Perfect for a sunny day and to get some energy out!
