I give this a perfect 100 b/c its the best bar Ive ever been to AND its stocked w/ classic old timey video game machines: Rampage, Moon Patrol, Gauntlet, Arkanoid, Centipede, Ghouls and Ghosts, the list is as good as their unparalelled beer selection. I hear that good little atheist/agnostic boys & girls spend their eternities here after they die...... BAR F*CKING CADE IS MY VALHALLA.

Great little place in Brooklyn with a solid selection of drafts and 80ís video games. Service is great, beers served in correct style glasses, young crowd. All-around nice spot.

I canít say enough great things about this bar, so Iíll leave you with this: I am not only a beer lover, but I am also a big fan of classic video games. I have a nice size collection of my own. Needless to say, having a selection of beer that includes Maharaja on draught and an endless supply of awesome old videogames, I was like a kid in a candy store.

Not much more I can add that hasnít been mentioned already. Fun place so long as itís not too jammed. Nice little outdoor seating space right outside the entrance, where you can have a beer with your dog. Extensive happy hour (5-8pm). Nice rotation of American micros. Best of all, plenty of classic 25 cent video arcade games in case you donít feel like socializizing or scribbling down tasting notes.

friendly staff, good music, canít really find a better selection of american craft beers any other nyc bar, though a few do rival (pony, tap room, et al). they seem very community minded, hosting fundraiser and events.

Love this place. A great place to hang out, and have a few beers, and have a laugh. Beer selection good enough for me, east coast stuff, with Southampton my seeking beer. Nice to be able to have a great place to hang out, play some games, have a laugh and drink craft beer. Nice work.

Besides for the hard to find beers, this place is a must. They have all the great 1980s arcade games lined around the perimeter of the place, the beers are priced fairly, and the snacks like beer nuts and pretzels are only a buck. I have a lot of fun here, and you can bring friends or other people that you know that arenít beer geeks, theyíll have fun too.

This place is genius. It gives women a justification to drink great beer and hang around without being picked up. The industrial look is excellent, the vibe great. Music not too loud. The bar staff helpful and deserving of a good tip. I really enjoyed drinking here and will be back. As a 40 something female. Good stuff.

Just donít ask for change of a 20 to get quarters....almost lost my head....Love the atmosphere...all games and very urban/graffiti. Selection is great, and constantly changing, almost always has one cask offering. They should throw a barmaid in to walk around an offer to get you more drinks so you donít have to ask a friend while you are hammering away on Rampage!!!!!
