After much experimentation, Fort Sanders Yacht Club stumbled upon the perfect formula for a good time: 17 arcade games to the power of 70 beers multiplied by free WiFi and a menu of bar eats. Behind the bar gather drafts, bottles, and cans, ranging from craft beers from Sierra Nevada and New Belgium to old favorites such as Yuengling and Pabst Blue Ribbon. While sipping on their beverages of choice, patrons can immerse themselves in old-school arcade games such as Space Invaders, Tetris, and Donkey Kong for 25 cents a pop, which is the minimum wage for a digital character. Late-night guests hungry after their electronic competitions can check the club's food menu for bar classics that include personal pizzas, egg rolls, and hot dogs.

Back Door Tavern accompanies bottles and mugs of beer with games and free hot dogs. As guests busily imbibe, sports take to the TV screens throughout the bar, foosball tables dream about being full-size soccer fields, and darts fly through the air in search of a defenseless dartboard. Outside, horseshoes look for chances to clank against a stake. Back Door Tavern also hosts special events such as holiday parties and trivia nights, as well as private celebrations of weddings or escrow.
