Ironically the Deep Ellum Bar is in Boston. So popular that it used to come up #1 on Google if you searched for "Deep Ellum". And yes, it's named after our little 'hood. :-)

B4 has around 8 pinball machines in the back. The owner is looking at staying open late on Friday and Saturday and charging a cover for unlimited play. He's trying to talk me out of my Twilight Zone pin because the curio shop theme matches his store, but it's not going anywhere. :-)

The Pharmacy has a couple pinball machines, a video game and Skee Ball.

Waiting on a Pegasus Brewing Co. though.


There's already something similar: Pegasus City Brewing. They're in the Design District

https://www.pegasuscitybrewery.com/


I had completely forgotten about it, and thanks for reminding me. Great use of the Pegasus inside the letter D.

A friend of mine who moved to Boston told me about this bar. I heard the owners are from Dallas, so that's actually pretty cool to see.

That's cool. I knw Dallas' has cidercade (retro games and ciders).

Richardson has freeplay which is similar to the concept u mentioned.

I love these arcade concepts
