Pixels & Pints Ready to Play on Grafton Hill in Worcester

by | May 19, 2020 | Entertainment, Dining, Headlines

WORCESTER- After much anticipation, Grafton Hill’s arcade bar is ready to open its doors. 

Pixels & Pints  — located at 179a on Grafton St. — is an arcade lovers’ dream, featuring a broad collection of retro arcade games from the 80s and 90s, surrounded by walls of POW!WOW! artwork and totally radical neon signs, a bar area designed as a shipping container, and an ice cream truck as a prep kitchen. 

Owner Jason Eastty is excited to welcome guests for take out orders as early as next week, until patrons can be seated in the bar area when dine-in restrictions have been lifted by Governor Charlie Baker. 

Eastty told ThisWeekinWorcester.com, “It feels great to finally be able to share this awesome place with everyone.”

Eastty said the idea of opening an arcade bar stemmed from his love for arcade games and his experience working in entertainment with his previous venture, Escape Games.

“When I still owned Escape Games I was like, ‘You know, I want to do something different’ and I wanted to be able to keep doing that, and I love arcade games so I said, ‘Might as well,'” Eastty said. 

Food items available for takeout will include chicken and waffle cones which are available in three flavors:  barbeque, buffalo, and mango habanero. [Later this week, be sure to check out Follo’s Food Review on ThisWeekinWorcester.com.]

Pixels & Pint’s beer selection includes Jack’s Abby, Wormtown, and Night Shift. 

Hours of operation are currently set at Tuesday thru Friday 4:30 PM to 11 PM, Saturday 12 PM to 12 AM, and Sunday 12 PM to 10 PM. Customer parking is available behind the building.
