“The West Coast’s premier classic arcade”
Ground Kontrol is the West Coast’s premier classic arcade, preserving and celebrating video gaming’s “golden age” by operating over 60 classic video games and 27 pinball machines, and selling refurbished vintage home systems such as the Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo. Ground Kontrol also serves beer & wine during evening hours, hosts DJs and Rock Band, and is available for public and private event rentals. Ground Kontrol was founded in 1999 by two record store employees who loved classic video games. In 2003, five lifelong pinball and video game fans joined up and purchased the arcade, moving it to bigger and better digs in Portland’s historic Old Town/Chinatown neighborhood the following year.
This is definitely the best place to play pinball in Portland. The first floor is all 80's and 90's arcade games, and the 2nd floor is all pinball machines! Move over Chuck E' Cheese's, this is the best place to have your birthday party!
Kid friendly during the day, starts serving beer in the evening and at night! Bring quarters for the games. Drinks are reasonably priced, and they have an incredible selection of well-maintained games.
