Arcadia, a 1980s inspired arcade bar with over 20 classic games, opened inside Buckhead dive bar Red Door Tavern on Roswell Road.

Located adjacent to the tavern’s main entrance, Arcadia features classic arcade games like Ms. Pac-Man, Tekken, and Galaga, murals of old school game characters like Donkey Kong and Super Mario Brothers, and a floor consisting of 180,000 pennies.

“Arcadia is designed to transport our guests back to the 1980s with its games and design, and we are thrilled to see patrons of all ages enjoy this brand new interactive extension of our current offerings,” owner Steve Shamatta says in the press release.

Like the bar, the arcade room is only open to those 21 years and older.
