While many geeks would swear by their diet which consists of Pizza delivery, there are many other options available which are a lot cooler, but require a Geek to step out of the house once in a while. Below we gathered 17 Geeky Bars and Restaurants that are really cool thanks to their Theme, the Hi Tech or the overall feel.
The Barcade in Brooklyn is a wonderful place for geeks to drink a beer and play some great Aracde games. With an awesome variety of retro games, pool tables and different beer, it could be the best place to hang out besides your own geeky room.
Star Trek fans are already familiar with Quark, his Bar and the real life replica that is located in the Las Vegas Hilton. It is a place where Geeks aren’t only welcome but are more normal than any regular folks.
Inflatable Irish Pub
With the Inflatable Irish Pub you could bring the fun to your own backyard, but you would have to be careful that you don’t pop the bar in its entirety.
The Rectum Bar
The Rectum Bar in Vienna is something that is difficult to look at, yet you cannot really look away. It allows Geeks to get a good cup of Coffee and also learn about the digestion track in Supersize.
Outpost Tavern (Closed)
Although it has long been closed, the Outpost Tavern was a NASA tribute hangout. With various memorabilia utilizing the Astronaut theme, it was a place Geeks could call home.
Located in the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Eyecandy delivers great Hi Tech with bright ‘eyecandy’. This Geeky bar includes interactive touch tables, great sound stations and a Michael Jackson dance floor.
Clo Wine Bar
Located in New York City, the Clo Wine Bar allows you to select your drinks using a Hi Tech Touchscreen, so you could really feel geeky and innovative. I am sure some Geeks will still find reason to complain why they can’t just order using their iPhone or Android, but for the few others, it could be a great Geeky experience.
Miracle of Science
The Miracle of Science in Cambridge is a wonderful place for Science Geeks. The entire look is great with the menu presented like the periodic table of elements, the drinks come in actual beakers, and even the condiments have a special delivery system…geeky test tubes.
Mundo Global Tapas
There may be many more restaurants adapting this kind of menu system, but the Mundo Tapas in North Sydney already provides an iPad as the menu for customers to browse and order from.
In London’s Soho, Inamo provides a wonderful Interactive concept. As they explain:
At the core of Inamo is our interactive ordering system. Diners place orders from an illustrated food and drinks menu projected on to their table surface. You’ll set the mood, discover the local neighborhood, and even order a taxi home. Our dedicated and friendly staff are always on hand to help with whatever you need.
This awesome Robotic Restaurant lets you use a Touchscreen menu to make your order, with the ordered items arriving at your table by the spiral slide when ready.
A cool concept restaurant in Korea with mini Robots as your waiters.
A Vampire Themed restaurant in Tokyo that would provide to the Goth geeks and not the Techy ones. Still, the actual theme is well presented, bloody and deserves a visit.

A great restaurant concept that is created out of all the Instructables Creations. You could really design and build it all by yourself.
The Progress Bar
Although not a real Bar, the Progress Bar is a great take on the annoying Windows feature we are all so familiar with.
Apple’s Genius Bar
With a name that is rather narcissistic, you can expect many things, but overall, it is a place for Apple Geeks to hang around, learn from experts and get geekier by the minute.
The Ithaa restaurant is an amazing underwater place to dine which is part of the Hilton of the Maldives Islands. Besides a fine dining experience, there is also an underwater Suite.
