Play

The first of its kind, Play is the result of combining your favorite neighborhood bar with the fun of your youth – The arcade.  From the second floor of 16 South Palafox in Downtown Pensacola, Play is located in the heart of Pensacola’s Entertainment District.  21 and over.

A community-centric bar with a cast of local characters from the genius trivia savants to bar game junkies, Play invokes the spirit of your youth while giving you the best ingredients of adulthood.  With rotating microbrews, a combination of vintage and state of the art (and by state of the art, we mean vintage) arcade games, pool tables, skee-ball machines and much more, Play is Pensacola’s favorite neighborhood bar with a side of fun.
