If you and your friends need a night out, an arcade may be just the thing you’re looking for. Arcades around Arlington offer both retro and modern gaming options and attract players of all ages. Locals looking to get their game on can check out any of these top-rated arcades near our Clarendon apartments

Punch Bowl Social

If you’re looking for the chance to eat, drink, sweat, and think, Punch Bowl Social is the place for you. With a wide-ranging food menu and a list of craft beers that would make a brewery jealous, this arcade-style entertainment complex will keep you fed while you perfect your gaming skills. Located in Ballston Quarter Mall, this three-story modern gaming space offers all the fun of old-school arcade games. You’ll sing karaoke, bowl with mini or full-sized pins, out-think your friends during wall-Scrabble, and show off those ping-pong skills. 


While bowling alleys and arcades may be a long-standing duo, Bowlero takes this mash-up to new levels. The state-of-the-art arcade at Bowlero features all the retro classics while also offering popular current arcade staples. You’ll find everything from World’s Largest Pac-Man to Jurassic Park Arcade to Mario Kart. You can also shoot hoops, play skee ball, and try to grab yourself a prize with the claw. If you need a break from all the gaming, feel free to bowl a few rounds under the backlights. If you’re only out for the food, then check out the high-end sports bar; you can enjoy a craft beer, a glass of wine, or one of their signature cocktails while watching the game. 

Immersive Gamebox

Although Immersive Gamebox is not a traditional arcade, this new twist on gaming provides endless opportunities for live-action fun for you and a group of friends. Each group chooses one of ten interactive games. The players then try to achieve their objectives in a room complete with electronic aids like touch pads and 3D motion tracking. Games are designed with different group make-ups in mind, providing options for all ages. Whether you’d like to enter the Squid Games yourself or chuck some life-sized Angry Birds, you’re guaranteed to have a good time here. 

When you’re all gamed out, head back to your luxury apartment. You can relax in your soaking tub or enjoy fresh air on your terrace under the stars. If you’d like more information about making 2001 Clarendon Blvd your home, please contact us to schedule a tour today.
