    The fries are amazing steer clear of the Mac and cheese tho. Just boxed shells with imitation bacon crumbles and reheated chicken bites. The beer selection is creative and changes often. #arcade

    They have a highly descriptive beer menu, and the staff is cordial and friendly. Is this NYC!? Also, great food and a clean bathroom. I only wish they had Asteroids, like the one in Williamsburg.

    Newest Barcade will open today on St. Mark's Place. It's mostly '90s games, with lots and lots of fighting games. The main attractions will be the beer, wine, and bar food. Thu, 10/9. Read more

    Great place to just hang out with friends. Watch out girls, there's a lot of dudebros that may squeal from excitement from the fact that you're playing games. The mortal kombat one is the best

    Mostly fighting games at this Barcade with Michael Jackson's Moonwalker that's great for 3 people. Unfortunately there's only 1 unisex bathroom, so when it gets crowded, the line gets really long.

    Has the best video games. They even have ones you forgot existed. Great beer selection too. Great for a relaxing, fun night.

    Great craft beer selection and some fun games like Mortal Kombat, Marvel and Puzzle Bubble. Can get crowded but it's a nice switch up from the usual bar.

    Barcade is the bomb! Drink craft beers, eat some tater tots, and play arcade games. Dig Dug is an underdog but it might be my favorite.

    These tater tots are Tetris-shaped and absolutely must be purchased. You get plenty; a boardful.

    The sights & sounds are familiar, but this new location features some legendary fighting games. Better than that? Super Mario Brothers!

    Love the fact that this barcade has 90s games. Take note barcade in jersey city..you need more 90s games. Weird that it closes at 2am in the city though...

    Dynamite Cop deserves a gold medal, play it when you're tipsy, but sober enough to realize the hilarity of using a breadstick in a fight with a gun-wielding dude in a dog suit

    Great beer selection. Check out the original Donkey Kong game from 1981! And the hilariously inaccurate Die Hard game

    Smaller than the other NYC Barcades. Games are more 90s centric. Still great beer selection.

    Great video game selection. The sliders were cold and inedible. Eat before you go there.

    Street Fighter II, Tekken 3, Mortal Kombat 2 and 3, and Killer Instinct. There's a 90's fighting game theme here, to say the least.

    Too many fighting games for my taste. If you're like me and prefer classic platformers, stick to the Barcade in Williamsburg.

    It's a pretty cool idea -- bar and arcade in one -- but it gets ridiculously noisy. I guess I needed a few more drinks...?
