Last year, Columbus Underground readers voted the 16-Bit Bar+Arcade as their favorite new bar of 2013. This year, voters brought it back to the number one spot as their favorite bar out of them all. The Downtown bar has kept busy with a regularly rotating selection of arcade games, beers on draft, and special events to bring customers back often. The local love for 16-bit has allowed it to grow rapidly as well, with a Cleveland expansion completed earlier this year and a Cincinnati expansion currently in the works.
