What is this?
Emporium SF's most innovative entertainment destination! We have the largest collection of games in San Francisco with everything from classic arcade games to pool tables to tons of pinball, foosball, skeeball, air hockey, and more!
Our bar is passionately curated with the choicest craft beer selections, an innovative cocktail program, and a huge whiskey list. We feature tons of events including live DJs for those that would rather dance than play, as well as the game tournaments you'd expect.

When I went there some games ate my tokens and others didn’t work. WTF?
First of all, sorry about that. Secondly, next time please tell us. Most game problems are a quick easy fix IF you tell us about them.
Unfortunately, some of these games are decades old and do sometimes break down unexpectedly. We try our darndest to keep them up and running smoothly. Please, please, please let us know of any issues when you are here. This will help to ensure all the games work great all the time. We will also ALWAYS refund your tokens and then some, no questions asked!
Do you have TVs and will you be showing the game?
We almost always show whatever game people are interested in watching.
I am an artist. Can I put my art on your walls?
Probably not, but maybe. Contact us to send a portfolio of your work for consideration.
I make music. Can I play your bar?
Very possible. Contact us here and give as much info as possible for consideration.
