Lucky Strike Entertainment has done it again with FTW (For the Win), which opened in early June. FTW is a 20,000-square-foot arcade-gastropub hybrid that includes more than 130 games, a six-hole miniature golf course, chef-driven food, and craft beer and cocktails in one sleek, innovative venue. The large space is filled with Steampunk decor and combines both new and classic arcade gaming options. FTW also feature a new card swiping system, which takes away the hassle of dealing with tokens and allows guests to come and go as they please. There is even a store, called “The Payoff,” offering more than 250 prizes, much better than the classic arcade prize counter.
