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.”
“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.
