Have visited a few times over the years. I’m not remotely into video games so this place’s USP is kind of lost on me. Not much of a vibe as it’s just a dark room with a lot of people staring at screens. Beer selection always seem a bit conservative and too IPA heavy. I like their merch though.
A fun place to visit, not only for the beer. Beer selection is decent, but the games is what makes this place stand out. The cool vibes makes it a good place to visit (even) with friends that are not that interested in craft beer.
I went to this place while crashing in my wife’s hotel room while she was working in New York, NY. I live in Chicago and there are now about a dozen places that take on this concept, but I got the feeling that this was the original place that went with the beercade theme. I went here at 4 PM on a weekday in the winter, so it wasn’t too crazy and I was able to hang out and play NBA Jam for a couple of games. Definitely a fun atmosphere with a good selection, would recommend this place.
I didn’t order at the bar, so I gave them an neutral 8. Not being a gaming nerd myself, I really didn’t fancy all the arcades that much. I like to have a quiet beer, don’t need to get stressed over some game :p But the concept is nice, and I get why people enjoy it! Selection is very decent.
Combination between dive bar, arcade game bar and a beer place. Came in pretty late just for a couple of drinks. Wasn’t too crowded. Good selection, about 25 taps, some very interesting brews. Good prices considering other places nearby. Worth visiting.
