Frequently Asked Questions


No. Unfortunately, our establishment can only allow patrons over 21 years of age at all times. We know you want an exception… but there really aren’t any to make.
You betcha! We only serve snack foods though. If you’re looking for a whole meal, you’re more than welcome to bring it in or have it delivered! At the bar we offer a Ham and Cheese or Pepperoni pretzel pockets made locally from Pat’s Taste of Philly Pretzels. We also serve chips from Broad Ripple Chip Company!
The arcade games are free-to-play with purchase. Seriously, just buy something and we’re square! Pinball is $.50 per play or three plays for $1, so you’ll only need quarters for those! We do have an ATM and change machine on-site!
Yes! We love doing company events outside of regular business hours (prior to 4PM Mon-Fri). Very occasionally we are willing to close during regular hours for private events, but you better bring your checkbook 😉 Closing on a Wednesday, Friday or Saturday is usually not considered. For birthdays and bachelor parties, see below. For additional info about private events, contact us or shoot us an email here
Yeah, that’d be awesome and we'd love to have you on your special day! However, we do not offer any special packages for these events. We'd love to help how we can, but seating is limited and tables are first come first served. Tables do usually turn over quickly, so you should be able to snag one, but we do not take reservations.
There’s plenty of street parking on Virginia Ave and surrounding side streets. We also have limited spots on the side and behind Tappers, but these are for patrons only. Don't be a jerk and park there and walk somewhere else 😉
We have our current draft list here. Please keep in mind this list changes daily! We also have domestics in bottles and a selection of red and white wine. For non-alcoholic drinks, we have Coke products and a rotating root beer.
Currently, Tappers only holds a license to serve only beer and wine. We promise we will let you know if that ever changes.
Probably not. Just watch our social media accounts and we will let you know if we need you!
