It’s game time, Greensboro.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for (including us!)… although there were a few setbacks along the way, we’re finally ready to open our doors at our newest arcade bar in Greensboro, NC. Mark your calendars for our official opening day on …(drumroll please)… Thursday, January 26th! Wondering what you’ll find at Boxcar Bar + Arcade in Greensboro? Here’s a sneak peek at some of the games, drinks, specials and events we’ve got lined up for you.


Whether you’re an avid gamer, a skee ball junky or simply looking to throw back some beers with your buds: we’ve got you covered. Our game collection includes everything from classic arcades to pinball favorites, skee ball, air hockey, a number of Nintendo game systems and beyond. Check out the full game lineup here. We’ll continue to build and rotate our game collection, so be sure to check back to see what’s available for play. If your favorite game is missing from our collection – let us know! We read and consider every game recommendation.

Quench your thirst.

With a full bar, including 24 constantly rotating craft drafts, a canned and bottled brew menu and seasonal cocktails – we’re sure to have something to please your palate. Our beer menu includes a number of North Carolina drafts, and we offer pocket friendly prices, with our pints averaging at about $5. Check out our live-streaming beer menu to see what we’re pouring daily.

Get your grub on.

While our bar in Greensboro does not host a kitchen, we offer fresh, free popcorn daily, we’ll be lining up some of the Triad’s favorite food trucks outside our doors and we welcome you to bring (or order in) food from your favorite local spots. See what food trucks we’ve got lined up on our Greensboro bar events calendar.

Score free tokens.

Come in from 4-7pm on weekdays and noon-7pm on weekends to score 2 free game tokens with every drink purchase.

Get something special.

We’ve got something special lined up for you every day of the week. Mondays will be our designated pint night, where you can score any of our 24 craft drafts for just $3. Help us ‘kick the keg’ on Tuesdays by enjoying select drafts for just $3, then swing by on Wednesdays to “Drink For A Cause”, where we’ll be donating 15% of sales to a select local charity each week. Quench your ‘Thirsty Thursdays’ with $4 shots of Jameson and $3 cans, then kick your weekend off right with $2 Fireball shots and a select $3 draft every Friday. We’ll be slinging a select $2 shot and $4 beer on Saturdays, along with $5 Old Forester Bourbons, and serving up the best Sunday Funday in the Triad with $1 mimosas, $5 drafts and optional $1 bourbon sidecars.


Although our private events space is still in the works, we’re planning to have it ready for rentals by springtime. This space will include a private bar and can accommodate anything from an afternoon business meeting to team building events, cocktail hours and other small to large scale private events. In the meantime, our Greensboro bar is available for private rental until 4pm on weekdays and before noon on weekends, and we offer special accommodations for large groups during business hours. Just drop us a line with your event details and one of our Event Coordinators will be in touch to help you plan your next private event at our Greensboro venue.

Get competitive.

We’ll soon roll out weekly and pop-up tournaments at our Greensboro bar and arcade. Tournaments are always free to play, and you can score some sweet prizes, including Boxcar gear and gift cards, gift certificates to local restaurants, coolers and a variety of other swag items.

Come one, come all.

We’re dog friendly, so your pooch is welcome to soak up some fresh air on our covered, outdoor patio or to cheer you on as you score a personal DDR record. Want your kids to experience what gaming was like before the days of Xbox? Children are welcome anytime before 9pm, as long as they’re accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We can’t wait to kick things off – and to hear what you think. Drop us a line on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram @BoxcarGSO, or leave us a note right here on our website. Our ears are always open and every suggestion you send our way is taken into consideration. We’re looking forward to serving as your favorite gaming and drinking destination in Greensboro!
