Barcade is a bar in Brooklyn that combines a great beer selection with the nostalgia of old school arcade games. They have some classics such as NBA Jam, TMNT, Contra, Mike Tyson's Punch Out, and on and on and on. If you're not into arcade games it's ok, they have tables and a pretty solid bar to hang out at.... More

I am so happy we journeyed out to Brooklyn to visit Barcade! We were staying in a hotel in Manhattan, took the subway out to Brooklyn and I think walked for about 10mins from the subway stop to Barcade. It didn't look like a great area but we were there in daylight and Barcade was awesome. 25cent old arcade games... More

Went in for half an hour; came out 3 hours later, giddy, grinning and full of beer-fuelled plans to open one in London. Bravo.

Not the greatest bar, but the arcade games are top notch and a blast to play. They have a great selection including several of my favorites, Rampage, Joust, and TMNT. At a quarter each, you won't go broke even if you aren't good. I remember being much better at all of these 15 years ago. The beer selection was good,... More

Such a cool wee place, so cool in fact that my friend and I are still debating whether to try and franchise it here in Scotland. Awesome fun.

A great bar (with a wide selection of beers on tap) and then loads of arcade machines. There's a change machine that smashes notes in to quarters. Me and the wife caused a queue behind the Final Fight machine cos we just wanted to finish it. There's also a load of other machines and... t-shirts for $15. It's a great... More

Bar with a good selection of beers + classic arcade games (Rampage, Tetris, Arkanoid, Smash TV, Gauntlet, etc.) for only 25¢. The games even eat your quarters some times. Classic!

A fantastic bar, good atmosphere and especially if you miss those arcade video game machines. Very good selection of beer which changes frequently for your new choice. Friendly staff and a good place to hang around with friends. I went their twice during my trip.
