Best Arcade for Grown-ups - 2005
Bar of Soap
Most people assume the only place a person can grab a beer in Dallas while playing an arcade game (read: not Golden Tee or one of those touch-screen mini-machines) is Dave & Buster's, but Exposition Park's Bar of Soap gives drinking gamers a shot at some fine cabinets without forcing them to wear khaki shorts. Racing, shooting, pinball, Pac-Man and air hockey are on tap in the bar's laundry room, so whether you want to kill time while finishing a load of whites or kill terrorists on the Gunblade: New York machine, electronic diversions are only a quarter slot away at the BoS. Even better, there's no Dance Dance Revolution cabinet--that's the last game you want to play after a few rounds, anyway.
