Cobra Arcade Bar

Cobra Arcade Bar is pure nerdy fun with an arty bent. Dozens of vintage games line the interior and take up much of the space. A PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X can be played at the bar. Murals by artists El Mac and Lalo Cota cover the walls. Local DJs drop mixes every weekend and keep the energy level as frenetic as a Red Bull-fueled deathmatch while bartenders serve geeky signature cocktails like the Krazy Kong and Inky’s Drinky. When Cobra gets as crowded as a comicon (which is often), head a few doors down to Hi-Score Club, its new anime-themed lounge. Hang out with the other gaijin, play Japanese import games, or quaff cocktails from mugs shaped like fugu. Kanpai!
