Went there on a whim last night and was happy to have found this gem of an establishment! The decor was really cool, food excellent (I had the Cuban sandwich and my date had the grilled cheese and said it was awesome too), and the selection of craft beers on tap numerous. And then you have the throw back games... More

24 beers on top and a cider. I had the cider and it was excellently balanced, not too sweet and not too dry. I was here on a monday night so it was kind of dead, but the bartender was nice enough and the clientele not too rowdy. I had come here for some post dinner entertainment (Fette Sau is... More

While it’s not quite on the well beaten path of hot spots in Philly, Barcade is well worth a visit if you’re fond of 1980’s arcade games. If you’re also a fan of craft beers then you may never want to leave! While it’s doesn’t look like much from the outside, I actually drove right past the place the first... More

The idea for this place was really great: a bar with old school arcade games, playable at old school prices (yes, 25 cents). However, the execution is somewhat off. Every time I go, at least a few games are out of order. Also, the later you show up, the more crowded it is, so you may wait quite a while... More

I had been hearing a lot about this place and was finally able to check it out a few weeks ago. It's absolutely a Fishtown gem! The location is fantastic, right between the Barbary, Johnny Brendas, and Frankford Hall. The building is even cooler once you get inside. They have a great draft list that changes daily and they have... More
