A neon Pac-Man ghost outside the door lets you know you've arrived at Blipsy Barcade, the Koreatown bar lined with vintage arcade games. From Double Dragon to Paperboy, retro video games ping away beneath the DJ-supplied soundtrack -- which could be anything from frantic cumbias to oldies rock. The bar offers fairly cheap drinks, including tall boys of PBR, but be warned: like the video games, the bar, too, only takes cash.
