Ground Kontrol

Ground Kontrol

Ground Kontrol is a video arcade in Portland, Oregon. It is notable in both its efforts to preserve games from the Golden Age of Video Arcade Games, and for its multiple purposes as an arcade and bar (establishment). It also serves as a venue for DJ's, live bands and Rock Band events. Also of note is its collection of 26 pinball tables, the largest publicly available collection in Oregon.

History

Since opening in 1999, Ground Kontrol has underwent several changes. In March of 2003 it came under new ownership, Timewarp Incorporated. Also of note is the September 2004 move to a second, larger location and the addition of a beer and wine bar in May of 2005. Guitar Hero nights began in the summer of 2007, and switched to Rock Band on the release date of that game.
