While most kids now bond over headsets during Call of Duty rather than during bouts at Ms. Pac-Man, the lazy Saturdays of growing up in the 1980s and '90s still live on inside Grinkers Grand Palace. The staff has brought together more than 100 arcade games released between 1975 and 1992, allowing Gen-Xers to relive the joys of their childhood as they plop quarters into arcade games in a friendly bar setting. While they aim for the high score on Super Mario Bros., BurgerTime, or Space Invaders, guests can sip on wine and beer or refuel with a range of subs and root-beer floats. A playlist of classic rock hums through the speakers, creating an atmosphere conducive to transporting players back in time so they can remember where they left their lost retainer.

The Playboy Wine Shop scopes out a different kind of exotic beauty than its namesake magazine. In addition to curating a selection of wines from the world’s most famous production zones, the staff also looks to vineyards in Spain, Stellenbosch, South Africa, and Walla Walla, Washington, among other areas, for unique and flavorful pours. The panel that picks and chooses the wines to feature in the online store has one more important criteria: “approachable luxury,” which means that, unlike a potato chip dipped in molten gold, the wines’ rich flavors suit all palates and wallets.
