Despite all the bar action that’s been happening in Highland Park these days, its next-door neighbor Eagle Rock has been a bit slow on the uptake. But Walt’s Bar is here to change that. The new neighborhood spot calls itself an arcade bar, but good news - it’s not an arcade bar. It’s a retro dive with a row of pinball machines in the back. There’s also a great crowd that’s down to get rowdy, a popcorn machine that takes quarters, and a late-night food menu that reads like the concessions at a middle school basketball game.
