Most arcade bars are pretty small and cramped. Not the case for EightyTwo. The Arts District spot certainly gets crowded, but the space is very conducive to large groups when it needs to be. There’s an area dedicated to old-school arcade games and another area entirely for pinball. And right in between them is where you and your friends will be - on the outdoor patio getting weird. There are food trucks on the premise as well.
