A very cool bar lined with old arcade games which seem to be very popular amongst the youngish crowd who was hanging out here on a Friday night. The place was packed, and the few seats already taken, of course. More than 3/4 of people had to stand, which I find tiresome for a beer session. The atmosphere though is unique, and moreover the beer selection is top notch. 24 taps filled with known and obscure goodies, many of which werenít to be seen in the New York area that weekend. A great place for a few tasty pints or a group party. Iíll definitely be back next time Iím in Brooklyn.

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 is a pretty amazing concept... classic 1980ís arcade games and ...beers. I was so psyched when I heard about it, and it lived up to all the hype. A pretty good selection on tap. I loved the fact that there were little wooden "shelves" next to each game, to give you a place to rest your beer. An awesome place, no question about it.

i love this pla. ce. The idea is you can get a beer and play any of the old quarter video games that are available in the bar. Centipede, Space Invaders. Video games big plus. Great beer and cask selection. They have one cask engine. Lots of room to sit inside. Nice friendly staff who know a lot about their beer. Walking distance to other Brooklyn bars.

Finally went here for the first time yesterday on my own private Brooklyn brew tour. Big warehouse or mechanic shop turned into a bar/arcade. Really high ceilings. lots of room. sitting area outside in the front. Cool cap design on a wall. Lots of old school arcades for a quarter (i loved that part). They only have taps, which only seems to be craft beer. Nothing foreign. One cask, the stuff they get is pretty rare. I like their snacks (jerky, beer nuts, and chips) which were all like a buck each, which is great. Plus you are within walking distance of Sputen, Mugs, and Brooklyn Brewery.

Like a Reeseís this place is two tastes in one. Awesome american brews and all of the 80ís video games you were addicted to as a kid. What more can you want, well maybe a pizza, and the bartenders are happy to order that up for delivery as well. Add in the hard to find brews they have on tap here and the laid back Brooklyn vibe and you cant ask for much more.

The regular bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, though the occaisonal substitute may be neither. The selection is always good, and often enough - during special events, for example - it is completely great. Best in the uncrowded late afternoon, early evening. A very good place.

Former machine shop converted into a grungey but airy, loft-like bar. Vintage (mostly eighties?) video arcade machines ring the perimeter along with a couple of pinball machines and a pool table. Service was friendly and knwlegeable and willing to chat about the bar and the beers and even the video games. Excellent tap selection showcases mostly local breweries and a few were real gems. This is definitely aplace I can see myself returning to as often as possible.

This was my last stop, after visiting Mugís Ale House and Spuyten Duyvil and I was pretty drunk by then. I didnít end up rating, mainly because I was having to much fun playing video games, but also because there wasnít anything on draught that I was dying to rate. The draught selection was nice however, with notables such as Southampton Pumpkin and Hair of the Dog Fred. Being very close to the metro stopped helped to. A fun bar, but I do wish the video games would have been a bit more modern.
