    Visited on 6/1/2017 at 1700. The bartender on duty at that time was completely unfriendly and unprofessional. If I go back and see him again, I'm turning around and walking out

    I love the idea of this place! however their drink selection SUCKS, music is horrible and the crowd is boring, I would not recommend unless you just want to play the games in the arcade.

    Amazing bartenders, great beer selection, good cabinets, sadly lacking entirely in pinball, but 4 person pac man is a blast!

    Arcade games are fun all, but the douchy hipster crowd kills the vibe in here. Go next door to the Handle Bar. It's a dive, but better than barcade...
