I came here for my 22nd birthday and had a blast. There is a wide selection of games to play - gotta say Tetris and Mortal Kombat were my faves. There a lot of cool deals at the bar for shots and other drinks. I had a beer from a local brewery and it was hella good! I'd definitely return if I had the chance!

We went here twice during our short stay in Williamsburg after a recommendation from my sisters friend. There is plenty of games to play here to keep you amused for the whole night. The games either take quarters or barcade tokens which can be exchanged at 3 different machines located around the bar. The staff were extremely friendly throughout the night. The manager was especially helpful giving us helpful tips for the rest of the trip. The place was clean and welcoming. Plenty of areas to sit down and have a drink. The drinks were spot on. I highly recommend the Brooklyn Mule, one of the best cocktails I’ve ever tasted. Highly recommend!

I was in New York visiting my daughter recently and because of the cold weather, our options for spending a Saturday afternoon were kind of limited. So after getting some lunch, she took me to Barcade and we had a blast! We spent about two hours -- and a lot of quarters -- playing Ms Pac-Man, Frogger, Galaga, Donkey Kong and other games from my youth! And there was a nice selection of beers to go along with it. The place is a little off the beaten path (it was a pretty good hike from the L train station), but it was a lot of fun!

Lots of classic video games, and a shelf between each game to place your beer! Dig dug, centipede, Pacman, Joust!

I've been to 100s of bars and have never in my life had a problem with a bouncer...until I came here. The bouncer here was aggressive with each of our party. Aggressive to me, to a pregnant woman in our party and came close to actually attacking us. Needless to say, none of us will ever go back so long as there is staff like that. Go over the road to the West, so much better!

Barcade was cool. They had all the 80s games which I grew up playing. The bar was a little gross but I’m glad we went. The bartender was super sweet and helpful!

Old arcade games, excellent beer and creative coctails. I recommend Brooklyne mule. On the wall there are best scores in each game. Try to beat them!:) Really fun place.

Visited here with my husband and enjoyed the experience. Unfortunately, we were pretty tired from travelling, so didn't stay too long - but it seemed like a nice, laid-back crowd. We changed up about $5 and had plenty of goes on the games - it wasn't too busy, so we could sit down in between, and didn't have to wait for any of the games we wanted to play. Music playing in the bar was good, too.
They do also have a great beer selection if you're into that!

Certainly a bar with a difference pinball machines with a never ending supply of locals and tourists alike to play them. A good range of beers on offer its a loud place with a constant supply of different music, worth checking out. It was one of the first bars serving craft beers

Thanks for the review! However, I think you meant arcade video games as we do not have pinball games at that location currently. Cheers! Barcade

Went to Barcade on the recommendation of a friend who lives in Williamsburg - did not disappoint! Although we didn't actually play any of the games ourselves, we had a good time watching others play Mariokart while we enjoyed some of Barcade's many tasty beer options. The staff were very nice as well - great service :) A good rainy day activity. We went in the middle of the afternoon on a Sunday and found a table easily.
