Up-Down Kansas City

Since opening in 2015, Up-Down Kansas City has been a Crossroads destination. This adult playground keeps the nostalgia flowing with two floors featuring more than 50 ‘80s and ‘90s arcade games, skee-ball lanes and pinball machines; a bevy of craft beers on tap; game tournaments; daily specials; signature pizzas; live music; First Fridays attractions and more. 101 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, Mo., (816) 982-9455,
