Metro Detroit's newest arcade bar is up and running in Mr. B's Gastropub in downtown Royal Oak. The move is part of a change of direction for Mr. B's, which appears to have shed its neighborhood bar vibe for one of a gastropub.

According to a release from the restaurant, it revamped its menu and offers a wide selection of salads, sandwiches, pizzas, craft cocktails, and "shareables," with all menu items made from scratch daily. 

The arcade offers over 20 quarter-operated games like "Crystal Castles," "Centipede," "Millipede," "Missile Command," "Demolition Man," electronic dart boards, and foosball, "Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes," "Ms. Pacman," "Galaga," "Cruis’n World," "Killer Instinct 2," shuffleboard, skee ball, beer ball, "NFL Blitz," "NBA Showtime," "Star Trek: The Next Generation," "Target: Terror," "Time Crisis II," "Tekken," and "The Simpsons."
Adults 21 and older receive two free game tokens with a drink purchase from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Kids under the age of 12 will receive a free game token when they dine with their parents.

In recent months, POP+Offworld arcade opened above the Checker Bar in downtown Detroit, and Ready Player One launched nearby in Greektown. A new Barcade is in the works in the Cass Corridor.

Mr B.'s is located at 215 S. Main St. in Royal Oak.
