In addition to the 6 bar HDTVs (including an 80″ screen that was perfect for our June Mario Kart 8 tournament), we’ve got enough space to host classic and modern gaming throughout the entire bar. With Nintendo 64 Goldeneye 4-player showdowns on a projector screen and Super Smash Bros. Melee duels on the karaoke stage, Lakewood locals and the city’s best fighting-game players alike congregate each week for a real retro party.
