PHOENIX — Level 1 Arcade Bar is opening its second Valley location in Mesa next week.

The arcade bar will open in downtown Mesa on Main Street between Center Street and MacDonald on July 7 at 11 a.m.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held earlier this week, with Mesa Mayor John Giles and co-founders of Level 1 Arcade Bar in attendance.

What can I find at the arcade bar?

Level 1 Arcade Bar brings a retro arcade experience, as well as food and game-inspired drinks from a full bar.

Pinball machines include The Addams Family, Indiana Jones and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, while arcade machines include Mario Bros., Mario Kart, Pac-Man, Mortal Kombat, NBA Jam and Tetris.

All games take quarters or tokens, as well as token machines that guests can purchase from.

It will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to midnight. Brunch will also be served on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Happy hour will take place Mondays through Fridays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Each day offers daily specials, such as whiskey and wine Wednesdays, and throwback Thursdays.

Those under the age of 21 can enter with a parent or guardian until 7 p.m. and must be supervised at all times.
