    I came across this bar in passing. I was walking around in the Art District of Los Angeles and saw a sign for this bar. I passed by and could see a few arcade games set up through the door. It threw me off because I was expecting to see a bar. Come to find out, Eighty Two is a bar, but it's also a gaming arcade. It was like a dream come true for me. I didn't have time to make my way inside, but I definitely want to go back. I thought this was such an amazing idea for a bar!

    That is a nice picture. I bet you are not the only one who feels that way about that club. There aren't enough places like that around, and I think it is an awesome idea being as there are so many gamers that would like something like that. I wonder how long it will be before others pick up on the idea. It seems like it would be something that is really super.

    Oh boy, I wish I had something like this here in Bucharest, I would spend more time there than home. Playing classic arcade games while drinking some good alcohol is one of my dreams! :D

    I have yet to go to the bar, but honestly, I'm more excited about the video games than anything. It'd be nice to get my hands on a few of these arcade machines. I was reading up on their website and they mentioned that most of their machines are originals. Classic Arcade games are fantastic and I can't imagine a better way to drink, than playing the classics alongside.

    I've never been there but I feel like going If I ever happen to be in the LA area. I like the way it was designed. It totally seems like a decent place to hang out and have some fun.

    I've never been, but I remember when it first opened. My friend had his birthday party and I really wanted to go, but I had to work that night. I heard that it was real chill and the owners were not rude. I love the Arts District!

    As for me, I am still trying to get to the Red Rocks bar in Centreville Virginia which has like 100 different kinds of Tequilla. I might get someone else to drive me and work my way down the list...lol. However, if they are like 8 bucks a pop, for a drink, I might limit myself to a few! The 82 bar does sound great though!

    I have never been to LA but it is on my bucket list of places to visit some day. I like the look of that bar. Maybe someday I will get there. Being from a small down I have always enjoyed the night life of a big city when vacationing. It is always a nice change to visit new places.

    It gives me a great idea for a Bar(haha),but they do have pinball machines at this place to, so thats very cool and retro as well. It would be great though to have a glass of wine or mug of beer-or whatever drink because they look like they have a full bar in this place. Wow pinball machines would be my game of choice,since I grew up in that Era-but if you can't go, take a virtual trip with the video below!

    Arcade games has long been out of style already, so I would love to go to an establishment that offers arcade games.
