We went on a Wednesday evening (about 6), and it was pretty busy — no seats, no tables, only a few games open. We were still able to order at the bar, and got our drinks and food pretty quickly (and just carried them around...More

I had a good time at the Barcade late on a Thursday night. I had just wrapped up a visit to the ESB and decided to walk over to play a few retro arcade games. I love this... it's always a must-do when I'm traveling...More

A friend took us here and we had a great time. The beer selection is pretty good and the novelty factor of playing arcade games and drinking was fun. Being British, we didn't recognise a lot of the games and didn't really have arcade culture...More

There's something really awesome about stepping back in time to the mid 1980s/early 1990s, right at the height of the arcade craze, but now as an adult getting to enjoy it with like minded gamers...With a side of beer! The Barcade on 24th St is...More

Lots of beers on top ( specialty beers, not just American pilsners) and of course old school arcade games. Side by side car races, Pac-Man , Ms Pac-Man, my favorite Qbert.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
