The Boston Globe visited Salem recently and liked what they found at Bit Bar!
After dinner, it was still warm and light out, so we walked to The Bit Bar and got our Ms. Pac-Man on. We arrived at the restaurant/bar/classic video game arcade to find folks dining al fresco on the patio, and others playing corn hole. Inside, it was like walking into warm childhood: some 30 classic video arcade games, the bulk of them from the ’80s and ’90s — Donkey Kong, NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, Space Invaders, Spider-Man, The Simpsons — plus pinball games, and all at the vintage price of a quarter. This is a Gen Y heaven, where our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are still pixelated, and Fritos are on the dinner menu.
