Where did you come from?

The concept of “Retro Arcade” bars actually originated in NYC with Barcade some odd 15 years ago. It then spread to the West Coast and back again to the Northeast where resurgence has clearly occurred over the past several years particularly in cities such as Boston, Providence and Portland. Flashback is the first and only Retro Arcade Bar & Grille on Cape Cod and takes all the finest elements of the other Retro Arcade Bars and refines them into the creation of FLASHBACK.

Both! You can get quarters from our change machines or purchase tokens from your server.  You can even charge tokens on your debit or credit card with NO upcharge!

Where do you get your games?

Our games are provided by Bit Bar of Salem, MA.. Bit Bar originated as a “pop up’ amusement provider for events and had grown into a highly successful Retro Arcade Bar and restaurant itself over the past several years. The owners and staff of Bar Bar scour the East Coast looking for antique games in need of homes, restoration and love and then place these games on an income sharing basis with finer operators such as Flashback It’s not easy to find a repair crew that specialized in “antique video arcade and pinball games” but we got that!
