We offer exciting, delicious food created by our incredibly talented and creative executive chef that will make your mouth and your taste buds rejoice. Enjoy the outdoor patio, play 30 plus classic arcade cabinets and pinball tables, and power up!
Dedicated classic game enthusiasts, we met up through the group Boston Retro Gamers and found the area lacking in outlets of community enjoyment of the classics. For the love of vintage games, we started working on Bit Fest, a totally impractical concept where we would wrangle 30 plus arcade machines to pop-up in local breweries, a cafe bookstore, and even a hair salon for a day or two. The reaction was amazing. So far, we have done this on a shoestring budget. Using the small proceeds from our events to find and fix up more games and eventually to rent some warehouse lab space.
Building on Bit Fest’s overwhelming success and the excitement and encouragement of our amazing supporters, the Bit Fest team is thrilled to now bring to Salem—greater Boston area’s very first Bar-Arcade—Bit Bar!
