Arcades catering to the 21-and-up crowd have skyrocketed in popularity in North Texas. I mean, what's a better pairing for nostalgia than alcohol?
We've called the Bishop Cidercade in Dallas' Design District one of the hottest spots to get your game on locally, thanks to its rotating stock of more than 100 games ranging from Skee-Ball and pinball to Tapper and Street Fighter. But now it's official.
The Cidercade was recently named America's best cider bar in a USA Today readers' choice poll.
Nominees for the poll were selected by USA Today's experts and then voted on by the public. See the full list of top 10 bars here.
Not only can you find a wealth of games at the Cidercade, but you'll also find 24 ciders on tap that you can enjoy onsite or take in a growler to go. The cidery also sells six-packs of cans to go.
Bishop Cider Co. first came on the scene in 2014 with a small taproom in its namesake Dallas neighborhood, Bishop Arts. It quickly outgrew the space and opened a 9,900-square-foot production facility in the Design District in 2016. By the end of the year, owners Joel and Laura Malone had filled the space with a plethora of video games that has only expanded since.
Patrons of the Cidercade pay $10 for unlimited play on all of the games, which is a great deal. During peak hours such as the weekend, however, you can expect to wait for the coveted games like Mario Kart.
