Where Toronto - - BEST OF THE CITY -

Toronto’s best bar­cade is the re­sult of some care­ful by­law bend­ing: the city pro­hibits bars from hav­ing more than two ar­cade games, but Tilt’s own­ers skirted the rules by clas­si­fy­ing the space as a club, with a $5 cover charge in ex­change for un­lim­ited ac­cess to the game col­lec­tion. Which is boun­teous, by the way: 200-plus vin­tage cab­i­nets, ro­tated weekly, in­clud­ing trea­sures like Ad­dams Fam­ily and Me­tal­lica pin­ball, Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles, and Street Fighter II, along with Skee-Ball and bub­ble hockey. There are 20 lo­cal beers on tap (we like Clif­ford Brew­ing’s on-theme Pin­ball Wizard pale ale) and a menu loaded with greasy food: piero­gies, fun­nel cakes, corn dogs, and dill­brined fries. 824 Dun­das St. W., tilt­toronto.com
