Atlas Arcade – Video games and beer

Arcade bars seem to be all the rage in American cities lately and Atlas Arcade fits the bill. When I have friends come in from out of town this is another surefire spot to take them.

I love how they have a Super Nintendo and Sega set up – I don’t have to play just arcade games here. For a few quarters I can play my favorite video games of my childhood while having a beer. All the arcade games here are a quarter or two and they have a change machine on site. I usually just get a Natty Boh for 3 dollars.

Atlas arcade is off H St, which is another one of DC’s “it” neighborhoods. I like to catch the free streetcar at Union Station and ride down to 18th and H and then walk over to Atlas. They have a selection of canned beers and a rotating draft selection. They are not open for happy hour but I like to start my night here.
