Fatality and a frosty mug: Arcade Bar

We’ve seen our fair share of home made arcade machines, some complex and some simple. This one stands head and shoulders above the rest with its ability to combine two of our deepest loves: beer and video games. There’s not a lot of information, just a few pictures. We’d love to see some build shots or action shots.  We’d love to test it out actually.

Here’s an update: [Burke LaShell] is the maker of this fine project. You can see more pictures of it in this thread. Thanks, [Shawn].

  1. That’s AWESOME!

    hmm… my MK arcade machine is sitting about 5ft away from my bar… now you’ve got me thinking

    very easy to do. no details needed.

    simply shove a xbox in there, hook arcade controls to 4 xbox controllers and call it done.

    Most of the work is building the bar.

    That’s amazing !!

    I’ve been waiting for almost 3 months to get 2 old arcade cabinets to turn into a MAME cabinet. I’m supposed to get them this weekend, this article is REALLY making me anxious to get them.

    simply shove a PS2 in there, hook arcade controls to 4 Wireless PS2 controllers and call it done.

    This is really timely. Recently I’ve been trying to figure out a way to work an arcade into a coffee table. The cocktail styles would be too high to sit on a couch in front of.

    Hmm. Unfinished basement. Long term desire to build a mame cabinet. Fondness for beer. I’m seeing a projector, arcade controls and bar stools in my near future. Excellent idea, why did I not think of this?

    This is the original forum where the MAME bar was posted. The builder’s name is Burke Lashell.

    Super idea for a home bar. Will definitely keep this in mind for my gaming crowd.
