We offer our own twist on the arcade bar concept featuring more than 45 classic arcade games, 16 pinball machines, 3 lanes of classic Skee-Ball and multiple sets of Giant Jenga. With 14 beers on tap, a Hall-of-Fame of vintage cans, a solid selection of 40 oz. bottles of malt liquor, full bar and delicious food, we have something for everyone. Happy Hour is Monday - Friday from 3:00 pm-7:00 pm. Our other location is at 717 E. Colfax Avenue located in Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood.

This was my first time visiting 1up and I loved the atmosphere and the games! I’m a huge Mrs. Pac-Man fan and I really loved trying out 4 player Pac-Man with my friends. They have all the arcade games that a 90’s kid could ever...More

What a fun throwback to younger years, with the enhancement of cocktails! Ms Pac-Man never seemed so fun. Great way to spend a few quarters on a rainy afternoon in LODO.

This is a good place for family and friends to enjoy of school arcade games, a good selection of craft beers and drinks. The food is really good and the menu is quite large for an arcade. Overall a great time.

Great spot to kill some time and play some games. Weekend nights are usually busier compared to weeknights. Enough games to be occupied for hours and a great drink selection.

We went on a random Thursday afternoon, and were the first ones that day. It was a great place to grab a few drinks, and play a few games. A lot of pinball machines, along with both some old, and new arcade games.

The wife and I brought our 18-year-old with us to go play last Saturday afternoon. A guard at the gate was very friendly but persistent in refusing to allow the teenager to enter. If the kid had been 15 or younger, that's okay, but anyone...More
