    It's a lot of fun when it isn't super packed. A great selection of really good beers. Recently they switched from quarters to tokens (LAME)

    Very cool concept that is nicely executed. Most games are a quarter value (not actual quarters, but tokens you get by exchanging dollar bills). Great craft beer selection! Few seating options.

    What's not to love about vintage video games and a well curated craft beer list. It's that simple and a great way to spend an evening. Wished they opened earlier is my only quibble.

    The original Brooklyn beer-cade. Personally I think Two Bits in LES has better games, but the beer selection at Barcade is hard to beat.

    The St. Marks venue has fighting game (Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat) -- which are NOT here. Beer selection is decent, but less fun vibe.

    It's got all the social awkwardness of a middle school dance with the added bonus of great beer and fantastic beef jerky. Tap takeover nights are a real special treat.
