Portland Trip: Ground Kontrol x Classic Arcade

Portland Trip: Playing video games at Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade and bar in Old Town/Chinatown on August 17, 2013.

Ground Kontrol Classic Araced | Portland, Oregon

A must destination on our Portland travels was to this classic arcade (and bar!) to play some old school video games (at their original sticker price, mostly 25¢ or 50¢). Some favourites like Donkey Kong, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, X-Men, Teenage Ninja Turtles, and classic pinball machines from your favourite film franchises (think Star Wars and Indiana Jones) filled the place. It sure was a lot of fun, but after a few minutes, it was one sweaty hot mess of a sauna-like atmosphere from all the movement. Apparently, after 9pm, there's a DJ (and $2 cover).
