Checked the reviews and glad we went. My kids had a great time while we enjoyed a beer. Rent a console for the evening and play multiple games. Big variety of beer in bottle or on tap.

It's a great place to relax and play unlimited games for $10 a day. They have older video games, older pinball games, one pool table (only has 1 usable pool stick ), but they also have PS2, Xbox 360 and other gaming consols available. It...More

Loved my visit to Asheville Retrocade. There is a huge selection of games, including pinball, classic arcade and console games. They have a good selection of drinks and everything was reasonably priced - you can't beat $10 for all day play, no tokens or quarters...More

We went to the Retrocade as part of a friend’s birthday celebration. The price for wristbands was good, $10, and the drinks were okay on the price scale, too. The advertising says thousands of games and I’m guessing that includes the PS and X-Box games,...More

This was a planned stop on a road trip. I was really looking forward to Retrocade but was quickly disappointed. I did enjoy the old school pinball machines, but overall was surprised that the "thousands" of games are actually on modern consoles where you play...More

This place is awesome! $10 per wristband gets you unlimited play - no tokens, no need for quarters, no goofy game card. But wait - there's more - there's beer! Yes, beer! So while the kids are playing games for 2 hours, you and your...More

We wanted to play pinball and Retrocade did not disappoint. We enjoyed the pinball and other video games. It is worth the $10 to enjoy yourself. Parking is tricky so be sure to find a spot and walk.

So fun! Unlimited game play on all sorts of retro video games and fun throwback music. Cool staff and beer and wine bar! What more do you need. We came on a Wednesday night at 7:00. Plenty of open games and fun!

Lots of classic arcade games, pinball, skeet, new consoles, and a great selection of beer. It can be a little crowded and some of the games have seen better days but it’s a great stop.
