Tap into nostalgia at Coin Arcade Bar, currently open for business at a pop-up location in Allentown.With a prime venue directly across from the newly opened Downtown Allentown Market on the city's ArtsWalk (21 N. Seventh St., Allentown), this is the perfect place to stop in for a few games before or after your meal.
Coin features have 17 games and 4 pinball machines. There is no admission but the owner is currently accepting donations to an Indie Go Go campaign to help fund support for a permanent location. Prices per game range from .50-.75 cents, making it the perfect way to use up some of that spare change you have lying around! You can bring your own quarters or buy tokens on-site.
The current selection of games includes classic favorites like Mortal Kombat, Ms. Pac Man, Centipede, Crazy Taxi, NBA Jam, and more.
Each weekend, Coin hosts a high score selfie challenge and tournament. If you come in first, you could walk away with prizes including gift cards to the Downtown Allentown Market.
While the current location of Coin is only a pop-up venue through November 15, the owner has hopes to land a more permanent space soon. Coin Arcade Bar is open Thursdays - Saturdays from 6-10 p.m. Sundays offer a family-friendly atmosphere from 1-5 p.m. The space is also available for private parties and events.
