16 Bit is fundamentally a bar, so between that and the fact that they would likely get overrun by teens if they didn’t ID to require a 21+ crowd, it is kid free. I have heard friend lament this because it is a very cool...More

16 bit is by far one of the best bars in Lakewood. Games are all free to play. Drinks are super strong and delicious. Its my favorite bar to get wasted at.

The great thing about 16-bit is the free game play. Stop in and have a ball brings back fond memories of my teenage years

Looking for an alternative to Dave and Buster's? Look no further. All the arcade games you grew up with from the 70's to the early 2000's for free. All you have to do is buy drinks while you play. How easy is that? The only...More
