While we'd argue that you can rarely go wrong with a quality cocktail and quiet conversation, sometimes the situation calls for something a touch more high energy. But, here in Boston, that's not always easy to find.
So -- what's a gal or guy to do when they just want to have fun? Head directly to the A4cade -- a bar with killer food and crushable cocktails that also happens to have a clandestine arcade. A collaborative project from the gastronomic gurus behind local legends Area Four and Roxy's Grilled Cheese, A4cade is sure to feature prominently in your drinking and diversion rotation.
Tucked behind what appears to be an inconveniently placed walk-in fridge at the back of a regular ol' Roxy's outpost is something unlike anything Boston has ever seen before. Gamers among us will fight crime with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, prove their athletic prowess with Skeeball or Shuffleboard, and go head-to-head against foes in vintage fighting games like Mortal Kombat 2.
Don't know Galaga from Gucci? Don't worry. The bar program is heavy on fan-favorites like a bottled Aperol spritz dubbed the 'Medicine of Life' and a slew of other fun and funky beverages that are sure to keep you plenty busy. Should you find yourself feeling hungry, you can complement all that quaffing with grilled cheese, burgers and hand-cut fries cooked right up front in the Roxy's kitchen.
So eat, drink and get ready to play -- you'll never be bored in Boston again!
