Best Cheap Thrill When You’re Broke: Keg and Coin

Listen, we’ve all been young and broke. Well, some of us still are. So living in an up-and-coming city where the price of living can’t seem to slow down, finding a fun AND affordable place to hang out is a rarity. Keg and Coin, located in Riverside, checks off all of the boxes for a cheap thrill. Creating a nostalgic atmosphere with old-school arcade games, themed party nights and kitschy decor, Keg & Coin also appeals to all ages, especially those who appreciate an awesome happy hour. Draft beer for $3? Unheard of in this climate but obviously welcomed.

Keg & Coin is Jacksonville’s first arcade bar, priding itself on having “the top games from the golden era of arcades.” They also offer leagues, tournaments and high-score competitions and serve local craft beer favorites, as well as imports. Backed up by a 4.7-star rating on Google with reviews gushing over the cheap prices and entertaining games, Keg & Coin was a shoo-in for Best Cheap Thrill and, for the right couples, the perfect date night location. –Carmen Macri
