Eighty Two in the Arts District of Downtown L.A.

Top 5 L.A. Arcades to Get Your Game On


James McCall

EightyTwo is a popular, full-menu bar in the lauded Downtown L.A. Arts District. One room has video games and the other has a large selection of pristinely kept vintage pinball games. Extra points for the 90s action side scrollers like the Simpsons, Ninja Turtles, and a very rare X-Men game. You can even get down with Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker game. However, the main attraction here is the Street Fighter 2 cabinet that brings loads of good players to the scroll as well as the aging hipster who remembers a few combos. The Street Fighter matches are projected above the dance floor where the amazing DJs spin.
