If you like beer and arcade games, look no further. This place was pretty fun, dark, and packed when we went. However, it was still really cool. The bartender will change your dollars for quarters (I think they might have had machines too). Some of the machines even have a spot to put your drink while you play (genius). Definitely... More

I dont know about the rest of you but I grew up going to arcades. I still remember when pizza shops or the corner lotto store used to have arcade games in them. Then came the 90s and all those places disappeared. Now here is barcade. A bar with a great rotation of taps. I think they have about 20... More

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
