Whether you’re seven or 70, we all enjoy an hour – or a few – parked in front of the screen with a controller in our hands. Playing video or other arcade games is a great way to decompress, relax or just enjoy downtime with friends.

But if your pile of games in the corner is looking a little bare, you can head to these arcades in Washington, D.C. to get your hands on the best games. Here’s where to head for some virtual fun. 

Boardwalk Bar & Arcade, located at 715 Wharf St SW, Washington, D.C. which is nine minutes from your Wray apartment, is a new drinking, dining and entertainment experience at The Wharf. Opened in February, the venue is the largest indoor/outdoor bar in our nation’s capital.

The kitchen offers beach-inspired bites such as carnival-style pretzels, corn dogs and cotton candy along with options for sandwiches, tacos and pizza. Spread throughout the venue are a variety of games, including shuffleboard, skeeball and pinball, and a wide range of arcade classics.

Board Room, located at 1737 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington, D.C. which is eight minutes from your Wray apartment, is a funky hangout featuring beer, wine and cocktails, plus pub grub and vintage board games in modern digs.

With 21 draft lines, an assorted collection of bottles and cans, a rotating list of wines by both the glass and bottle and a fully loaded craft cocktail menu, the possibilities are endless at the Board Room. Their game closet is filled to the brim with games from every era, and they are always open to suggested additions to their arsenal of games.
