The Baxter Bar and Arcade’s doors opened to the public on October 24th, 2014. Named after the Baxter Building in the Fantastic Four comics, the vision was to offer a laid-back, tongue-in-cheek atmosphere decorated with amazing pop art and memorabilia, old pinball back-glasses, and arcade inspired designs.
Before opening, The Baxter team spent months hunting down some of the biggest game titles from the arcade industry’s golden age, between the years of 1978 and 1998. As the arcade has evolved, the team has also incorporated newer games to keep up with the demand for such titles.
Now, the selection is ever changing, but the games are guaranteed to take you back to your favorite memories of the classic arcade. We pride ourselves on making sure the games are in top working condition and that they are original, with dedicated cabinets. By the way, the arcades still use quarters, which can be obtained at our change machines. We also have an ATM available on site.
Stocked with a full bar and a huge beer selection, you’ll never run out of choices. We also offer a wide array of non-alcoholic beers, craft soft drinks, and energy drinks.
In short, The Baxter offers you a chance to relive your childhood, all the while enjoying high quality libations with your friends and family in a truly unique atmosphere. Can you make it on our legendary high score board? Come and find out!
