    Great place!

    My wife and I were in Davenport while on a driving vacation, and we stopped in at the Analog Arcade bar in downtown Davenport IA. We stopped in on a Wednesday night to see the location and it's really good. A large old bank building has been turned into a first class barcade. We found a spacious and open interior with a nice looking and well stocked centrally located bar. Nice and comfy and dark (photos on website are more well lit), it reminded me of the arcades of my youth. There were about 18 pins in three groups, plus a very large and diverse selection of videos and other arcade pieces. All games we played were in great shape mechanically and cosmetically. The pins tended to be 1990s and later, no EMs or first generation SS. Bartenders are friendly and the drinks were very tasty (My wife had a Stella Artois, I had a Hendrick's Gin and tonic). There are tables (made from bowling alleys) and chairs for taking a break, and though they don't serve food you can order it delivered. We were not able to check out the Board Room, a separate room you can rent out. There was not a big crowd, but it was Wednesday, and the other people there were having a fun time too.

    You can have a drink in the vault! Well worth a visit, and even a drive!

    I will second these comments. I have to travel to the quad cities every so often for work and I always make sure I stay near the barcade. Games are well maintained. I usually see a tech working on something while in there and he'll jump in to fix something if there is an issue. Great place!
