There is a fun little spot in Vancouver that is becoming known as the place to be for drinks with a side of video games.

Glitch Vancouver is a bar in Kitsilano that is dedicated to bringing back all things retro. They have a variety of games and consoles that cater to those popularly played in the 80s and 90s.

People can order burgers and various drinks (including boozy slushies), while enjoying a gaming day with their besties.

Almost every table has an “ol’ school” gaming console and game, and there are a number of games available per system.

While you can only play one game at a time, you can actually ask to try as many games as you like during the visit.

In addition to video games, there is also a retro arcade and billiards area. It includes many of our favourite classics games like skee ball, arcade basketball and more.
