Quirky joint in Jersey City. What a freakiní dilemma. Should I A) order a Red Barn on tap, B) spend the first five minutes taking in the all Jersey has to offer in the voyeur department, or C) get straight into a game of Joust, Galaga, or Tempest?? Decent tap list, friendly staff, and a whole lot to of peripheral attractions to keep the mind occupied.

Warehouse feel, tons of vintage arcade games (not my thing). Snack type food was decent, pickled hops were fun. Draft beer was nice local crafts.

Visited on 4/30/13. A: Wide open old brick style building, has that warehouse type feel with the high, steel beamed ceilings and brick walls, roll up garage doors in the front. Wide open floorplan with several tables scattered throughout and a bar that can hold about 14-16 people. about 30 vintage video games lined two corners of the building. Q: They offered some really good selections when I was there including Habanero Sculpin and Victory Double Simcoe on mangoes (cask),a nice variety of good beers. S: The bartender was knowledgable and waiting for a beer didnt take too long. Beers served at proper temperatures and glassware. S: Decent selection that covered many various styles..hard to find a horrible beer on their menu but some plain average beers strewn within some really decent beers. F: The food selection is weird pub fare food. Tried the pulled pork/mac n cheese sandwich...very bland. V: Well, given the fact that it is NYC area, expect to pay NYC type prices of 7/8 dollars per pint. Overall, a pretty fun place to go...wouldnt want to be there when it is crowded or overly loud but we had plenty of access to the bar, TVs and games. A fun place especially if oyu love classic video games.

Ambiance-wise, it is just like all the one in Brooklyn (video games and beer). Its a fun concept. Probably the best tap list in Jersey City of any of the places Iíve been. You see locals and interesting beers move through here regularly.

Went for Kane's Anniversary party. Amazing tap selection, great food, and a really cool place to hang out and have a beer....and play some old school arcade games.

A cleaner version of the Brooklyn classic, but with a similar excellent beer selection (24 taps), and good and cheap bar food: I had the Piggy Pocket with sriracha, very nice. Friendly service, knowledgeable, free tastes, if you ask nicely.

Came here with Paul after a tasting at his place and prior to a tasting at Andyís place. Busy weekend. Nice laid back feel, just like the Barcade location in Brooklyn. Unlike the Brooklyn location, here there be foods. As it was a Saturday between the hours of noon and five PM, they had a lunch special going on. Sandwich, chips, and a beer for $10. Given that the sandwiches normally run $6-8, and the beers also run $6-8, this is a great deal. We got sandwiches and a few beers and played some video games. Canít really figure how you go wrong with that. It was fairly empty while we were there and the bartender was great. Iíd certainly stop in again, and would love to have a place like this near me.
