Big drink selection and some of the coolest games that I didn't even remember that I played back in the day - Galaga, Ms Pac Man, Ninja Turtles, NBA Jam, Mortal Combat 2, Pac Man Combat. A must try if you're in the neighborhood!

If you decide to visit Williamsburg (and there are many reasons you should do so), and you have ever enjoyed the experience of playing an arcade game on all its splendor, then you must visit Barcade. Get the Barcade quarters in the entrance machine, ask for a drink, choose between one of the classic games and get back to the... More

We had a friend with us and we traveled from a far..he's 30 years old, full beard and all. His d.l was expired a month but he failed to realize. But he doesn't even drink and wouldn't plan to. We asked the bartender if he could just sit there and play the video games. We were shut down, back home... More

Vintage 80's and 90's video arcade machines for $0.25 (like it should be) and a nice selection of taps. Atmosphere is fun and lively, people are friendly. You can also order snackies although we didn't on this visit. Next time!

Wide range of classic arcade games and lots of good beer. They don't have food, but have no issues with having food delivered.

I absolutely love this bar. My husband and I came here 3 years ago and were really excited to go back to NY and go to Barcade again. It's basically a warehousey type room with a few seats, a bar and arcade games that really take you back. There are change machines for tokens. Most games cost 1 or 2... More

If you are into old-school action games, then this is the place for you. They had a few others like Frogger, Dig-dug, Galaga, Berzerk...but not enough to hold my attention. Was super crowded when we went as well, too crowded for our liking actually. Made if very difficult to play much. Or get more than one drink.

If you're looking for a place to drink with your friends and you enjoy playing old arcade games like street fighter, paceman, Tetris, basketball, street ball, etc... This is the perfect place. Hipster very casual, has a bar which has pretty slow service

Great beers on tap and plenty of games. Check out Smash TV and be sure to try all the beers they have on tap!
