So, this looks pretty legit – from a San Diego-based restaurant group Sporting Fraternity, Inc. comes Coin-Op.
It’s taking over the Drake Bar and Lounge at 508 4th St., and boasts 10,000-square-feet and two floors of games like Donkey Kong, Galaga, Street Fighter, and Pac-Man Royale.
There are two main areas, including The Grid, a “Tron-themed speakeasy” and The Octagon, the lower level bar. (Stay tuned for more design details closer to opening). There’s also food, and most importantly, drinks, to accompany all of these vintage games. The executive chef is Mark Bolton, who’s got a super-bar friendly menu planned, including quinoa tots with avocado-lime dip, and carbonara mac-n-cheese with bacon, peas, and parmesan. – Eater SF
Coin-Op is now open from 4PM-2AM each day at 508 4th St. The Tron-Themed bar, “The Grid”, has reportedly opened as well. Like them on Facebook.
