With 40 vintage arcade games, and 14 beers on tap, Cobra Arcade Bar has transformed what used to be a quiet corner of downtown Phoenix into the heart of the neighborhood’s nightlife — But instead of beating, this heart beeps and zaps. Seven nights a week people come to Cobra for drinks, games, and to hangout with friends — and whether or not you consider yourself a gamer, you’re always welcomed as part of the community.
