Celebrating American Craft Beer and Classic Arcade Games.
The Barcade equation is simple and elegant: Vintage Arcade Games + Local Microbrews. Somebody get this guy the Field's Medal! - IFC Staff
Craft beers and 80s arcade games. 'Nuff said. -Seth Caro, Top Chef Just Desserts
Check out their incredibly selection of local and American craft beer, but watch the ABV - too many big beers will seriously reduce your ability to play the first round of Q-Bert or Marble Madness.
If you like American craft beer and classic arcade games you will be in heaven here!
Classic arcade games, extensive beer selection and a fun atmosphere for you, your friends and your dog.
Go for happy hour; all beers are $1 off, there's no wait for the video games, and hipsters with little knowledge or taste for beer aren't overrunning the place.
While the other gamers are waiting in line for Galaga, Tetris, and Ms. Pac-man, get a fancy beer, some quarters, and play Tapper. You'll never beat my high score but you can try.
Great Craft Beer + Vintage Arcade Games = Win!
Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Get a Captain Lawrence Fresh Chester pale ale and good luck getting to the kill screen in Donkey Kong.
Give yourself some credit – a thumb workout is serious business. The opposable thumb makes us humans more superior than any other species. How else are you going to check into your next location?
don't like beer? try the Delaware iced tea, made with Dogfish head small-batch liquor.
Super Mario and Six Point. Made of win.
Go to Barcade and play Frogger till your eyes bleed.
Fantastic draft menu. You will never leave.
Nostalgic arcade trip. Played Rampage and drank beers from their wide selection
Perfect place to go when you get bored of drinking & playing video games at home.
Winner of Best Place to get Hammered and Eat a Man in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Seek out our fav game, Rampage!
Kickball with a beer seem a bit sacreligious? Get over it. This bar lets you embrace your inner child—it’s stocked with vintage arcade games—while allowing you to keep a hand in your adult life.
Play Ladybug. I think it's way more fun than PacMan.
Like to play hard and party hard? Check out BARCADE's Happy Hour Mon-Thurs, 5-8 and Fri-Sun 2-8! Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!
25 craft beers on tap and 80s style arcade games, what's not to love?! Also- Happy hour runs 2-8PM Saturdays and Sundays
You wont find a ton of seating at Barcade, but with over 40 arcade games lining the walls and 25 microbrewery beers on tap each night, the last thing you'll need is a chair.
Don't forget to bring your quarters! Frogger is a lot harder than imagined and Tapper is a fun favourite.
Get there early, drink awesome beers and play Ms. Pacman before it gets too crowded
I prefer the cider, they have two kinds!
Go to Barcade and play Arkanoid!
Bring your laundry quarters! Craft beers and classic arcade games. Mike Tyson's Punch-Out in the back is just ferocious.
Retro 80s arcade games, talk about never never land.
don't like crowds? try a school night instead of the weekends for maximum elbow room.
I finally understand Pac-Man thanks to Barcade.
Qbert machine is hiding in the back between Smash TV and Final Fight! Don't use the left coin slot on it, you'll lose your quarter every time.
A high score on the big board... means you didn't score up in this place. Biatch.
LOTS OF BEER + Galaga. Why not?!
Mixing video games and drinking sounds like the best.
Best BKLYN bar in my experience while living there! Play some PacMan or DonkeyKong and try a Fransizkaner! :)
To defeat the Bald Bull - wait until his eyes turn yellow then dodge right and knockout punch him.
bartender will happily point out if you're on fire. very helpful
Try a Fishermans Brew. Great beer
Don't bang on the screen of the game when you lose, you will be given a warning
Tapper is the best game. The joystick moves infinitely vertical.
Alcohol and video games, together? Yes. For a very fun night out.
Beware of Tapper hogs! (including myself)
Imagine delicious local beer (no Budweiser, Heineken, and other crap here) mixed with your favorite 80s arcades (Punch-Out!!!, Contra, Tapper, Rampage, Tetris, Q-Bert, 1943, and more). That's Barcade.
the BEST reason to go to Brooklyn!
SO MUCH FUN - 40+ microbrews, tons of old school video arcade games for a quarter and a very cool laid back vibe. Located in hipster central williamsburg but don't hold that against it! :)
