Ground Kontrol

Portland, OR

Yes, there are lots of arcade consoles—nearly 100, if we’re counting—at this Portland bar. But it also hosts plenty of events that’ll appeal to gamer geeks and those who are less obsessed with Mario, Luigi & Co. A regular comedy night, No Pun Intendo! (get it?!?) has hosted local comics as well as writers from Adult Swim and The Daily Show. There are also live-music performances, trivia nights, and one-off events for things like Portland Beer Week.
