‘90s Nostalgia: Recess Arcade Bar

Oct 29, 2012 by     2 Comments    Posted under: Flashback Friday

The new Recess Arcade Bar at the intersection of Sixth and San Jacinto is my new favorite arcade bar. Though there’re a handful of them in downtown, this one has free arcade games all the time.

Their list of games will whip any arcade fan into a nerd frenzy. They include:

Recess Arcade BarMortal Kombat
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
NBA Jam
Marvel Superheroes vs. Street Fighter
NFL Blitz
Area 51 vs. Max Force
Knockout Punching
Mrs. Pacman
Donkey Kong
Gallaga
Centipede
Ice Ball (like Skeeball)
Golden Tee 2012
NBA on NBC Showtime Gold
Recess Arcade BarStreet Fighter 1 & 2
Terminator 2 Pinball
Giant Jenga
Giant Connect 4
Giant Checkers
Giant Chess
Frogger
1943
Pacman

Recess Arcade BarAccording to my gamer husband, Golden Tee is an especially hard game to find for free. It usually costs a few dollars per game to play. This bar also has some amazing specials, which you can check-out here and some pretty fun events. If only I had known about that Prohibition Party sooner. (I’m always looking for an excuse to break out the flapper dress.) So the next time you’re feeling nostalgic for some ’90s arcade games, why not take a little recess?
