New gaming bar opens in West Knoxville

Local News

A new bar opens in west Knoxville on Tuesday night — with a retro twist.

Token Game Tavern is located in the same shopping center as Big Lots and the dollar theater. 

In addition to beer and good food, you can also find old retro arcade games, pinball and new group games.

The owners wanted to mix things up in the world of sports bars and go back to what they call a “better time.”

“Instead of sports on TVs all the time, we have games on tvs and gaming consoles,” said Courtney Barry, the owner of the bar. “[We want] somewhere people can go and just remember what it was like to be in the ’80s.”

The bar is open from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. seven days a week.
