Had a chance to check this place out on Sunday night and was not let down.
Pretty rad venue located inside the Yucca Tap Room in Tempe.

Really good selection of nice quality and well maintained pins as well as a selection of classic arcade games.
The pinball/arcade portion was put together by some of the locals that are heavily involved in the pinball and arcade community, so you've got people in there that actually care about the machines and are huge advocates and supporters of local pinball leagues and events.

The main bar has a stage for live band while the arcade / pinball room is of to the side and there is a separate lounge side to the bar with pool table etc.
The place even has a shuffleboard table which is pretty friggin cool.
When I got there a surf rock band was setting up to play a set, followed up by a more bluesy band with Neil Young meets Bob Dylan kind of sound.
Pretty neat vibe, but I suppose they mix it up with different sorts of bands.

Anyhow, didn't see a thread for this place yet and though maybe somebody should start one.
Well worth checking out if you happen to make it to Phoenix for some reason.

I haven't had the opportunity to make my way over there just yet, but I plan to soon. Rachel and Chris are awesome, so it stands to reason that their arcade would be equally badass.

And I've got to say, "Electric Bat Arcade" is a very cool name, and that logo is fantastic.

Had the opportunity to visit as well. The YuccaTap Room has always been a cool place to go see shows. Now you can go there and enjoy their arcade! The place has come a long way.

Is this place all ages? I am staying 20 minutes from here and have the kids, aka... 'The Little Flippers' with me.

I received my answer... pretty much a 21+ place. Definitely 21+ after 6pm.
