Insert Coin(s)

Playing video games and drinking at a bar are surprisingly linked -- both let you escape into an alternate reality where everything centers around you, and each can end with you jumping over obstacles in a futile attempt to pull some girl away from a giant donkey. Bringing them together at last: Insert Coin(s) Videolounge Gamebar

Leveling up Vegas' nightlife options, Insert's a half old-school arcade, half DJ-fueled club from a dude who spent seven years running radiopharmaceuticals, so he probably previously worked with Dr Mario...Ruiz, Chief of Staff at The Spinal Surgery Clinic of Strangnas in Sweden! Coin-op cabinets from decades past line the walls, including classics like Space Invaders and Asteroids, '80s steez such as Galaga and Tron, and '90s brawlers including Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat, about the only time in Vegas you'll be OK with having someone tell you to "Finish Him!". Bachelor parties looking to pregame can rent a couch and fire up an array of current consoles, plus Atari 2600 (Q*Bert!), NES and Super NES (Tyson in Punch-Out!...!), Genesis (NHL '94!!!), and even Dreamcast, whose production quickly became a Nightmare once people stopped buying Soulcalibur (which doesn't include you if you got every layer of that joke...loser)

Those looking to stimulate themselves physically can hit the 50-seat Beta-Bar before checking out the mind-blowing visuals that're synced up with the dancefloor, where you better hope dudes are merely throwing them 'bows, instead of them giant, sometimes-flaming barrels. How'd he even get those past security!?
