About
16-Bit Bar+Arcade redefines how a night out is best played. With a name coined from the computer architecture that several of our 50+ vintage arcade cabinets were built on, 16-Bit appeals to those looking for an alternative to the monotonous. From bar-going veterans to young open-minded, beer-centric types, to arcade game novices and enthusiasts, the nostalgic and playful vibe is for players of all types. The time has come to relive your childhood and party like it’s 1999, or 1989 for that matter.

Normally this BAR arcade is a nice place to go; 80’s memorabilia, great drinks & good brews.
However on our last visit, it was the Kid zone—overrun with Ill-mannered kids, inattentive parents. Next time, we’ll plan better—had been there before, and it was quite good.

A very nice place for people who like to play on 16Bit game machines. They are all for free. The beer has crazy names and the tins have a spacey design. There are also pinball machines which you have to pay for. The area over the rhine „OTR“ has also lots of other choices for food and drinks.

We went on a Saturday night and the place was bustling with people, but not so much that you couldn’t play one of the games. The games were free, and I came home with a pocket full of quarters. It was a hot evening, and they had all the doors and windows open, but it was still pretty hot. Cold beers, too. Worth a visit!

I love coming here to play the games that take me back to the 80s, my favorite decade of all time. I come to play my favorites: Ms. Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Burger Time, Moon Patrol, and QBert. I've always been a champion at QBert and I love reliving those days. The drinks are fun, the people are fun, it's just a fun place to be. The games are free, just buy a drink. See you there!

I love 16 Bit for the nostalgia it brings me of being a kid in the 90s! The fun drinks and free games is so much more fun than just sitting at a bar. Not to mention the staff is incredible! I lost my wallet on a Saturday night and thought I would never see it again! I had over $300 cash plus my ID, credit cards, not to mention to wallet itself is very expensive. One of the employees picked it up and kept it in a safe place until Monday night when my husband realized where it could be. Anyone could have taken at the very least the money, and none of them did. I definitely recommend this bar!

Grow up playing Ninja Turtles at the skating rink? Missile command ring a bell? How about over 700 games on Nintendo Cube, N64, Sega Genesis, the list goes on.... Excellent Bar, friendly staff, and was a lot of fun. All the games besides the pinball were free. A must stop with friends if you are in the city.

This place is awesome! Went here for the first time this past New Years Eve, and now it’s a staple when I go out in Cincy! Drinks are reasonably priced, there is no cover, and the games are so much fun! Perfect for a good night out with friends!

Liked the concept of play what u can as long as you have beer.
The beer options are a lot and the consoles are plenty. The only thing is they have nothing to eat - while u can order out but still.
Hope they use an app themselves to deliver food for people.

Tons of games to play, all for free! They have a menu of weird drinks, so you have to order one! Gets crowded, but you are still able to move around and play games. Cool place to check out.
