It feels like you just stepped out of a time machine when you walk into the Michigan bar.

Located in Ypsilanti, this Michigan bar has a real nostalgic vibe about it. Once you step inside, it will have you feeling like you're hanging out in your parent's basement again.

It's called Keystone Bar and Arcade and it's literally in a basement. It has comfy couches and chairs everywhere that look exactly like what I was sitting on in my parent's basement back in the day. Plus, they have old-school arcade games, an air hockey table, and a pool table.

When I was in high school, I lived in my parent's basement. I would have friends over all the time to sit on the couch, chill, and play video games. We would play for hours and hours. We would also do a few things that we probably shouldn't have been doing at that age, but I won't get into all that.

All the furniture that was in my basement/bedroom was hand-me-downs from my parents. It was all their old beat-up furniture that was ugly as hell and looked like it came from straight out of the 70s.

Keystone Bar and Arcade have some food items on their small menu. They also have something that I didn't have in the basement of my parent's house...a bartender. They have lots of beers on tap and an arsenal of cocktails to choose from as well.

I love finding hidden gems like this place.


It looks like a cool spot that just might take you back to your childhood.

Keystone Bar and Arcade is in the basement of Bobcat Bonnie’s restaurant on Michigan Avenue.
