Excuse the cliche, but there’s a certain and apparent nostalgic charm about Pixel Alley that makes it highly entertaining for a drink and game, as well as a convenient spot to enjoy the cuisine from Burger Boys upstairs. The bar is lined with arcade and pinball machines a’plenty and there was a great crowd and vibe when we ventured in after a friend’s late night shift.
Pixel Alley is part entertainment venue part bar and even the mere sights of Golden Axe, Addams Family Pinball and the original Simpsons arcade game inspires exciting childhood memories. It’s terrible fun. There’s a mish-mash theme around the place and the staff are super friendly and occasionally geeky too. Cool little spot to feel young again and spend all your pocket money.
