Fun fun fun place. Great selection of draught beers, very impressive. Service is okay but it was quite crowded. A little on the hipster side but definitely a good time. They had DFH Spirits.

This place was awesome. Iím not really into the gaming thing, but it fit in well with this place. Only U.S. brews here, which was just fine with me. Some of the taps were rather common selections, but a couple of them were rare brews that I havenít seen anywhere before. Bartender was friendly and offered free 1 oz. tasters. Beer prices were very reasonable as well. Iíll definitely be back here!

This place all I can say is WOW, walk in and go WTF! not a big place but they had at least 30 old-school arcade games from when I was little all in a dimly lit bar. A big ass board will all the beers listed with a very impressive lineup up things like Allagash Musette, Southampton Baltic Porter and also Dogfish Headís, Vodka, Gin and Rum with Rogueís Rum also. They had beef jerky and chips to snack on as well.

One of a kind place. Packed the place can fit about 200 people with about 25 seats max. Prepare to stand-up if you go on a busy week-end night. As the name suggests the place is filled with old but functional arcade games. Must be very cool to be there on a quiet after-noon and hear all the ďbleep-bleep-blongĒ of the old days. As for me I was there on a week-end night and the place gets very packed with early 20s people and plays very loud heavy-rock music. Iíd even say that on busy nights it is probably be unpleasant to the older beer-geeks. Beer selection is about 25 taps including 1 cask. Mostly good and unusual stuff from local and non-local micros. No big beers again, mostly 5% to 7% stuff. Service is the bar kind of be-happy-when-someone-finally-serves-you. I really enjoyed the place but next time I go back there Iíll go in the after-noon or very early evening.

My friends and I had been on a long pub crawl for a Saturday that started at Sixpoints and ended at Barcade. By the time we got there, about 10:30pm, the place was rocking to the sounds of 80ís hard rock. I loved the vibrant selection of ales as well as the free standing video games. The place was a lot of fun with mostly a younger crowd.

This is a pretty cool place to go at the end of the night. They have a good selection but I didnít take advantage of it because I was too busy playing barcadeís arcade games.

cool bar. I wonít go into the video games or decor as it has already been well documented. Had a good time here, would recommend to beer geeks and non beer geeks alike.

Great great place and along with Hop Devil my favorite bar in New York! The tap list was amazing with 20-25 different available including Dogfish, Vitory, Stone etc. etc. Great interior with a bunch of retro arcade games. Friendly and knowledge service as well!

This place is probably my favourite bar in New York right now. Lots of taps that are very quickly cycled through. The place itself is pretty cool with loads of old arcade games around the perimeter of a converted garage. Cavernous space with assorted brewerania covering the walls. Quite divey, but Iím a fan of that as well. You wonít get the selection of killer Belgian stuff available up the road at Spuyten Duyvil, but youíll get well cared for American micros at a very reasonable price.

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.
