Arcadia National Bar
Two swanky floors of pinball, skeeball and arcade games combined with craft cocktails make this barcade the best choice for date night in Portland, ME.

Tiki-ish bar offerings include drinks made from “fluffy” fresh whole fruit like the Jungle Bird, Apple Melon Pear, and Pineapple Garibaldi. Hungry? Arcadia crafts pizza with ingredients like smoked gouda, goat cheese, basil and arugula. Don’t miss the Fruity Pebble frozen cheesecake on a stick.

Maine Silverball Tavern
Pinball artwork from Brian Allen covers the walls of Maine Silverball Tavern in Saco, ME, where you’ll find a nice collection of craft beer and an even better collection of quarter-player pinball machines. Make your way down the row of Williams machines, including Grand Lizard, Fish Tales, and Taxi, then head to newer Stern machines, including The Mandalorian, complete with a Grogu doll on the playfield, and don’t miss the handful of old electro-mechanical pinball machines like pitch and bat baseball games.
