Parties & Events

Black Dog Retro Arcade is a unique, locally owned venue that is a perfect place to host an unforgettable group event.  With over forty arcade games, close to 10 different consoles, a host of fun board games and television screens throughout the bar area, there is plenty to keep your group entertained.  The arcade hosts groups from 10 to 150, but if combined with the adjacent showroom space at the Arlington Improv (seating capacity 325), we can host groups of larger sizes.  From ten partygoers all the way to a complete buy-out, Black Dog is here to make your next event a resounding success!
