Gamers and foodies collide at the new barcade

Following on the heels of San Diego and Sacramento locations, the new two-story S.F. barcade Coin-Op Game Room attracts gamers and foodies with playful bites served alongside a dose of nostalgia, including vintage pinball machines, Pac-Man and Time Crisis. Designed by sfHEIMAT, the SoMa venue (formerly Drake lounge) takes cues from the 1982 sci-fi film Tron. Executive chef James Liles’ high-scoring menu musts include pulled-pork poutine and cocktails with house-spiced tequila and aged pineapple rum. 508 4th St., S.F., 628-444-3277. coinopsf.com
