Station 082 appeals to the creative and competitive side of its mostly-young clientele.

The owners have guiding principles: “We believe kids prefer to play games with each other. We believe girls like technology as much as boys. We believe kids like to build stuff as much as they like to play games.”

Easing parent worries, they promise a “safe, loud, fun place.”
