I give this a perfect 100 b/c its the best bar Ive ever been to AND its stocked w/ classic old timey video game machines: Rampage, Moon Patrol, Gauntlet, Arkanoid, Centipede, Ghouls and Ghosts, the list is as good as their unparalelled beer selection. I hear that good little atheist/agnostic boys & girls spend their eternities here after they die...... BAR F*CKING CADE IS MY VALHALLA.
I can’t say enough great things about this bar, so I’ll leave you with this:
I am not only a beer lover, but I am also a big fan of classic video games. I have a nice size collection of my own. Needless to say, having a selection of beer that includes Maharaja on draught and an endless supply of awesome old videogames, I was like a kid in a candy store.
Not much more I can add that hasn’t been mentioned already. Fun place so long as it’s not too jammed. Nice little outdoor seating space right outside the entrance, where you can have a beer with your dog. Extensive happy hour (5-8pm). Nice rotation of American micros. Best of all, plenty of classic 25 cent video arcade games in case you don’t feel like socializizing or scribbling down tasting notes.

friendly staff, good music, can’t 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.
Love this place. A great place to hang out, and have a few beers, and have a laugh.
Beer selection good enough for me, east coast stuff, with Southampton my seeking beer. Nice to be able to have a great place to hang out, play some games, have a laugh and drink craft beer. Nice work.
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 aren’t beer geeks, they’ll have fun too.
Just don’t ask for change of a 20 to get quarters....almost lost my head....Love the atmosphere...all games and very urban/graffiti. Selection is great, and constantly changing, almost always has one cask offering. They should throw a barmaid in to walk around an offer to get you more drinks so you don’t have to ask a friend while you are hammering away on Rampage!!!!!
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.
