Keeping the Arcade Alive in Downtown LA


It’s not as often as I’d like that I find myself in Downtown Los Angeles offering an abundance of art, unique restaurants and bars, and endless sites to see.  I always leave telling myself that I’m going to do it more often.  Now, with the new addition of the bar-cade,  82,  I just might find myself fighting traffic to spend the evening there more often.  82 is located in the Arts District of downtown LA.


82 has an impressive collection of arcade classics  including Tron, Burger Time, Tapper, the Simpsons, Donkey Kong, Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam, and Star Wars… to name a few. It also has a great pinball selection with  17 machines including Star Trek, Dr. Dude, the Addams Family, White Water, and my personal favorite: Medieval Madness.


If you live in or around LA (or will find yourself here in the future), I highly recommend giving this place a visit!
