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.

When I visited: Late September 2013.
What I had: Carton Something Like Sandy and Sixpoint Mad Scientist Series Graetzer on tap, Cape Ann Fishermanís Pick Ale on cask, sample of Port Jeff Fresh Hop Ale, a few white wines for my girl, beer nuts to snack on.
What I liked: Dark and dingy vibe works well with the arcade theme, lots of schwag available, very good style variation on the draught list, friendly bartender made great recos and was happy to provide samples, had a fun time blasting away outlaws while quaffing our drinks, prices are reasonable for the area.
What I disliked: Like many NYC bars they donít serve food, but we snagged some pizza slices nearby so it wasnít that big of a deal.
Would I go back? Yes. This was the best bar that we visited in Brooklyn. Worth a crawl whether youíre a beer geek, gamer, or both.
Overall Rating: 84

Visited May 2012 on a mini tour of Brooklyn.
I wish I had known about this place the last time I was in Brooklyn, though I have no idea if it was even around in 2009. I donít remember how much the games cost, if they were free or cost money. I only played a couple while drinking a barrel aged strong ale from Chelsea and then ironically probably the best Firestone Walker Double Jack I can remember having. The beer selection was all American which is a neat concept and was very hop heavy. Iím certainly not complaining. Prices were good and itís walkable from the train. I would stop in again.

Iíve wanted to visit this place ever since I heard of its existence. Itís basically an arcade in a warehouse that has a bar that serves 20 types of local and regional craft beer and thatís enough to make it totally awesome. The video games are from the 80ís and eary 90ís and I suck as badly at them now as when I was a kid (I could never figure out now to beat Bald Bull in lPunch Out) except now I have a craft beer in my hand. The prices may be the best in New York for craft beer with most drafts at $6 a pint and there even cheaper during happy hour. I really enjoyed it and I wish I couldíve stayed longer.

Visited on 5th July 2013. Large open-plan bar with a difference. An amusement arcade with a bar! Lively and vibrant - boisterous clientele. Extensive range of craft beers from across the States, brewers seen on this visit included Anderson Valley, Sixpoint, Redstone, North Coast, Chelsea, Rogue and Avery. Although I found this venue noisier than many others visited on this trip, I liked the vibe. Staff were friendly, even the bouncers who made a joke of IDíing me on entry although I do not appear remotely under 21:) I would not finish a crawl in this bar but would gladly re-visit as part of one.

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.

Definitely a nice concept and a fun place. Itís a little unusual for some...especially if you are not into the games...but the staff is great and the beer selection very strong. Iím not going to say this is a "go out of your way place"...but definitely check it out if in the area.

small crowd at about 5pm on a gloomy friday. laid back vibe while playing old arcade games. dollar off drafts during happy hour provided for a lot of $5 pints, not bad for NYC. big high ceiling. nice lookin place. some kind of peculiar torture chamber in the ceiling. would happily return. tight place.

Kind of dive bar meets arcade in a good way. Nice and relaxed vide. No food except for a couple of snacks. Solid tap selection. Bartender was nice but a bid of douche.
