’90s Nostalgia: Recess Arcade Bar
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:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Marvel Superheroes vs. Street Fighter
Area 51 vs. Max Force
Ice Ball (like Skeeball)
Golden Tee 2012
NBA on NBC Showtime Gold
Street Fighter 1 & 2
Terminator 2 Pinball
Giant Connect 4
According 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?
