If the world from Ready Player One became our reality in the future, someone stumbling on the Emporium Arcade Bar would be like finding every fictional treasure rolled into one. Set up in an old theater, this place is loaded with every type of arcade game you can imagine including Pacman, Galaga, pool, and Skee-ball. But even if games aren’t your thing, this is a great place to come with groups. There are lots of places to sit and hang out, the TVs are always playing movies or sports, and there are bars on each level of the venue. If someone in your group gets hungry, they’ll let you bring in food from the Popeyes down the block. It’s a fun place to get together for a birthday or to watch sports with all of your friends, and probably will be until we all only hang out over the internet with VR headsets.
