Nightlife in New Haven seems super quiet, but this bar was hopping! A TON of old arcade games, etc., and you can carry your drinks around with you as you play.

My local friends were quite scathing about New Haven's nightlife, but this was worth a trip. There was a decent selection of arcade games and pinball machines, a really good array of booze at the bar and a few tables and stools about. It was...More

Barcade has around 40-50 video arcade games and pinball machines, most of which are of the "classic" (meaning decades old) variety. You might like to revisit your gaming past by seeing or playing a few, but beyond that, Barcade isn't much more than an ordinary...More

I love this place. The prices are really good compared to other barcades. The drinks are great. (Don't know about the food since we didn't have any but looked like typical bar food). The games are awesome. But be warned they are all mostly from...More

The place is packed with awesome video arcade games and pinball - mostly from the 1990's and 1980's. The food is ok bar food, but when paired with the games and the beer you are in for a fun time.

Arcades have gone the way of the do-do, but not any more. Barcade brings back the arcade experience with all the games we grew up with and loved: Mrs. Pac-Man, Galaga, Street Fighter, Ninja Turtles, 6-Player X-Men, Arkanoid, Rampage, Q-Bert, Donkey Kong, Frogger, Punch Out,...More

Stopped at barcade during a bar hopping tour. My group of 15 got a kick of the video games we played when we were kids. Pacman, donkey Kong etc. We didn't eat here but the people there seemed to be enjoying their bar food type...More

We had a great time. SUPER games and bar. 50 cents to 75 cents per game, and they lasted for a LONG time. A wide variety. Bar stools and a limited number of low tables available, good for the drinking crowd but not really for...More

If you are a fan of early stand alone video games then you will not be disappointed. The games are great and there is something for everyone. The food here is edible but not very good. I had a disappointing Cuban sandwich with tater tots...More
