Wonderville

$$$$
Hours:MONDAY6:00PM to 2:00AM

Wonderville’s arcade game enthusiasm is so nerdy that it comes back around to cool again. This is a barcade with a rotating display of independently created games, and it hosts live music, video game tournaments, and other events every night. The creativity on display here is cool as sh*t—from games inspired by Japanese psychedelic rock and the Bosozoku motorcycle culture to a riot grrrl racing game with kawaii Grand Theft Auto vibes. Even if you aren’t that into arcade games, stop by for a burlesque or breakdancing show here sometime. Wonderville has a cool space with good cocktails named after beloved game characters, and they serve great hot dogs crafted by Randwiches topped with things like turmeric kimchi and Kewpie mayo.
