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.

Kind of dive-y looking at first, arcade games all along the walls. This place is renowned for killer beer events. The night I went there for their anniversary didnít disappoint. Decent, friendly service. Food is available at the bar. Fairly reasonably priced, especially for the part of Brooklyn theyíre in. Very good overall.

Cool in concept...frustrating in practice if you live here. It gets rammed with people and the music can be way too loud. Yeah itís cool and has Donkey Kong among others but unless it is a special event I donít go. In the case it is a special event, the staff is pro, not sure about beer geeks though. Go at an early hour because the kegs wonít last. They will have a crazy selection or aged or rare stuff so itís well worth it.

Have hit on Barcade 3 or 4 times, most recently on 02/03/12. Single roomed warehouse in effect with 30 or 40 old games machines still using the old quarter dollar slots, surrounding most of the walls. 25 beers on draft, $6 pours and $5 at happy hour (5pm - 7pm - from a hazy memory!). No food but you can bring your own or have it delivered. They do have some snacks such as jerky - check the hot as f**k one out :P. Solid tap list, nothing rare tbh, but good east coast fayre. Love this place, great vibes and idea.
