    Awesome. Craft beer and bubble bobble. You can't go wrong. Bathroom is kinda scary though. There's a locked door within the men's room's stall. I believe that's where they keep the evil hipsters.

    The extras make the place such a good time, including 35 classic quarter machines (Contra, Donkey Kong, Marble Madness) and excellent events including full tap takeovers by top-notch breweries Read more

    Craft brews and vintage 1980s arcade games are a pretty flawless combo, as well as a reminder that a great bar is about more than just the names on the tap handles. Read more

    Get $20 in quarters and blow it all away on some of the toughest games ever. Smash TV, Paperboy, Donkey Kong, Qbert, Tapper, and so much more. Be sure to have a Fishermens Brew at hand at all times.

    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.

    If you're an 80s baby u will love this place. All the arcade games from back in the day. Oh yeah, great beer selection, too. Nice bartenders, helped clueless me choose the perfect beer.

    If the food is not the most important part of the evening.... along with good little plates and beers, this place's speciality are the arcade games along the walls! For a good night out with friends

    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.

    Fun spot to hang out with a wide variety of arcade games and pinball machines to choose from. This is the best Barcade location with tall ceilings and open layout concept.

    The draft list is a feat of bar-management expertise, and the selection of games includes the best fighter out there, MKII. Just make sure you have cash for tokens!

    Arcade games and craft beer. Huge space, close to the train and diner. One of the better bars in the area. Always like checking out the rotating beer list.

    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.

    Great craft beer selection, every few Thursdays they have a special brewery night with most taps pouring drinks from that brewer. Change machine is around the bar for games.

    An awesome concept, with great beer and drink selections, but its main draw (the arcade) is mostly beat up machines that don't play well with a glaring lack of pinball machines.

    This place is busiest on Fri & Sat nights, as expected. But it's rarely utilized for day time revelry. You have the pick of the litter when the sun is up. No waiting. Happy hour doesn't hurt either.

    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.

    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.
