Have you ever wished for unlimited access to a massive arcade cabinet selection, or gaming consoles from every era? At Player 1, you’re in luck. With a single cover charge, you can access the venue’s entire selection of games, whether you’re looking for something old school or a title from a newer generation. As you play, you can indulge in an impressive array of beverages, ranging from beers and ciders to cocktails and mocktails. (Peep the Princess Peach cocktail below.)

Phone: (702) 405-0816

Lovers of video games, sci-fi, and cult classics who prefer to keep things a bit more lowkey should enjoy the themed atmosphere of Millennium Fandom. This is where camaraderie, cosplay, and pop culture combine to create a comfortable and inviting environment for members of all fandoms. Enjoy complimentary board games, trivia nights, movie screenings, and opportunities to meet others with interests similar to your own. You’re even welcome to order your favorite food to be delivered during your night out.

Emporium

Address: 3215 S Rancho Dr, Ste 105, Las Vegas, NV 89102
Phone: (702) 854-6367

Found amidst the neon glow of AREA15 is Emporium, a glowing event space that has all the fixings of an arcade and more. While some Las Vegas arcade bars focus strictly on arcade cabinets, this space provides an even larger array of classic arcade games, like skeeball and air hockey. Plus, they often feature live music, DJs, and art displays, and you can even opt to host an event of your own. (Pro-tip: Enter on the West side to ensure you always get free entry to Emporium, even if AREA15 is charging a cover fee.)

The Nerd

Address: 450 E Fremont St, #250, Las Vegas, NV 89101
Phone: (702) 575-8486

The Nerd is a video game and cosplay bar located in the heart of Downtown Vegas’ Neonopolis. Unlike most other arcade bars, this one includes a mechanical…well, not quite a bull, and bowling lanes so that the competition can really heat up. The space was inspired by Comic-Con and has even been known to sell authentic memorabilia, so fans might even be able to take home their favorite fandom pieces.

Pinball Hall Of Fame

Address: 4925 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119
Phone: (702) 597-2627

The Pinball Hall Of Fame is a beloved staple in the Las Vegas community, known for their charitable contributions as well as the stunning spectacle that is their warehouse. In 2021, the venue’s address changed and the amount of available space doubled as a result, meaning even more pinball action is calling your name. Primarily focused on classic pinball machines from decades past and spanning over 25,000 square feet, this museum is a pure pinball non-profit, and “fun is mandatory.”
