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.
Visited on Friday afternoon. I found the selection to be standard, nothing more. The staff were friendly and poured small glasses for $2 each. Lots of classic video games but bit over-hyped for my taste.
Man what a fun bar. I think all of us ol’ school peeps (ha!) have nostalgia of our youth coming here. Cool arcade and a fun place to get your drink on whilst jamming away at a few classic games. Good tap selection too. I had a couple of beers and finished on a double IPA from Other Half that I really didn’t need at that point in the night. Good times!
Stopped in randomly as I walking by and it always bugged me not have rated this place. Cool vibe with arcade games I could see being lots of fun with college buddies. I had a night I will never forget at barcade New Orleans so this one drink won’t rival that. Ok selection and prices.
Visited by accident ( lost my way . thought it was closed but it was actually open on sundays )
Selection is pretty good , not shocking but just nice .
service was OK . Atmosphere was very spacious , with much old videogames . Looks like some kind of warehouse . Very specific bar , with a unique concept . I liked it , but not per se for a beer-experience
Love it Love Love it! Big open warehouse lined with old skool video games (late 80’s latest?). I’m very excited.....I just spotted Ghost & Goblins. 28 taps, all US and good variety. Lower abv stuff about $7 a pint. Would love to bring my 6yr and 5yr here...just to show them what real video games are like. Glad I made the effort to come.
Big room with tons of vintage arcade games. Service was a touch slow at the bar but friendly enough. Selection was excellent although they had just had their 10th Anniversary a few days before so not sure of what was on tap during my visit was better than usual. Prices were good for the neighborhood. Will absolutely go back.
Cool place. Friendly bartenders and customers. Went in alone but had a nice chat with some folks. Very good selection of draught beers. Served in good condition. Did not play any games, but would like to do so someday. I liked this place.
Dickinsonbeer tipped us off about the Sunac grocery store around the corner where we grabbed sandwiches to bring with us since Barcade doesn’t have food per se. Quite tasty! We sat at one of the few benches/booths just inside the door which worked well for eating. The atmosphere is pretty warehousey, with minimal decoration but it doesn’t really need it either. Bathrooms are stickers and graffiti for the most part (though decently clean which was nice). They have a pretty solid tap list, with lots of local representation. Not many rarities during our visit, I had hoped for some leftovers from a special Mid West tap takeover earlier in the week but that was not to be. The games are the real stars of the show though, and they have a TON. It was quite busy on a Saturday night with short lineups for the more popular games. They still run at 25 cents a play which is cool. I played a few games of Double Dragon and some old school shooting game, but wasn’t really in the mood for more. I liked the place but I think it would have been better suited to not being at the end of a fairly long drinking day. Will come back for more gaming!
