    Very fun and different kind of night out. Long list of drinks you've probably never had but should definitely try. Games are 25 cents so bring lots of quarters. Ask and get a free hot dog

    They've got some good sandwiches, great deviled eggs and beef jerky but the real reason you are here is to drink craft beer from the ever-changing selection of 24 taps and play video games

    Excellent rotating selection of beers, delicious menu. Break out of the box& try new items. Daily beer list describes each, so u don't have to order blind. Weekdays are less crowded, and open til 2.

    Great selection of craft beers. What's especially nice is that they change them up all the time to match the season. Old arcade games at old prices are awesome too! Food options are limited.

    My favorite bar of all-time. Great selection of arcade games, and very wide selection of excellent microbrews. The best part is they're constantly getting new microbrews in- always something new!

    Went back to Barcade recently - must say, the menu was MUCH improved. Beer selection wide and varied as ever. Vibe remains casual if still a bit too hipster (trends have life cycles, after all).

    I love that bar. Great selection of beers and amazing arcade games. Spend some time with your friends. Try to beat them in archaic old games. Gotta love 80's.

    The nutella and bacon is a yes! Barcade always has a perfect selection of beer and the size of this place makes it super easy to get comfortable. Plus the bartenders are so so nice.

    Craft beers matched with original arcade games for 25¢ each. Sure, you could trek to Brooklyn for the same experience, but this location is just as close and less crowded. — Ben T., Creative

    The games you loved as a kid. The music you loved as a teen. The women you loved as a college student. The beer you loved as a twenty something... How refreshingly depressing!

    Classic games with superb tap beers, what's not to like? Bring 3 friends and hit up the 4 player games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Simpsons and NBA Jam.

    When bartenders huddle to answer a question as simple as 'what kinda beer is that?' one wonders. Then a menu is as weird and freaky as this one? Well, no amount of Galaga games make up for that...

    Perfect for grabbing a cold beer and playing a few games, or just hanging out. The nachos are a solid plate to share.

    Good if you love craft beer on tap, even better if you love arcade games. The patty melt ain't bad either.

    Try the curried tuna with mint sandwich. Homemade pickles are great match for the beer. Bathrooms are a little rough for a new place.

    The lunch special is a deal. Any beer and sandwich for $10. They'll also serve 5oz tasters for $2-3 each.

    The ultimate Jersey City (& Williamsburg & Flatiron) bar, the best arcade game and beer selection in town

    This bar has everything...craft beer, snacks, clean bathrooms, arcade games. What it does not have is great music...ever.

    Love their selection of beers. Very laid back and lots of space. Cool selection of games too, and only for a quarter each

    Best craft beer selection in town. The food quality seems to have fallen off in the past year, however.

    Great beer and arcade game selection. The food is pretty good, too. The worst part is that it can be really crowded at times.

    Solid beer selection. If a line forms behind you, finish your game and let someone else play.
  • Jason B.
    1980s arcade games and A-list tap beers, minus Brooklyn hipsters. Jersey knows how to do beer and games.

    This place has Damn Good jerky for any upstate New Yorkers in the area or anyone who likes good jerky.

    Beer isn't super Cher but the games are fun and a throwback for the late 20s and early 30s crowd.

    A Williamsburg import, the Barcade brand pairs drinks and food with classic video games.

    Happy hour is always pretty light. Especially on the chicks. Not many chicks. But always at least 1 hipster.

    Just go frequently... the beer menu changes so often it isn't even funny and the games are bad ass. Oh, did I mention the Nutella-covered BACON?!

    Try doc's draft cider. But if they have anything brewed by Stone go for that.
