Battle & Brew
Whether you’re the only anime fan in your friend group, or a gamer looking for an in-person space to bring the crew, you’ll love Battle and Brew. The first entertainment venue aimed at gamers and geeks in the United States, the bar boasts a wide selection of everything from vintage gaming consoles to the newest VR tech. The menu expands beyond your typical bar snacks to offer a variety of American classics, including award-winning burgers. Battle and Brew welcomes families during the day, but this isn’t a children’s arcade—after 11pm, the bar is adults only, and cocktails, shots, and beer on tap turn up the heat throughout the evening. Make sure to check their events calendar before you plan your visit; from whisky tasting with like-minded folks, to cosplay nights and nerdy comedy, you’re sure to find something that speaks to your particular obsessions.
