I love it here so much. I love the games, I love the huge selection of beer, and I love the atmosphere. One tip: Don't try the chipotle beer. Don't do it.

What a great place to get people together. Decided to use this place for my birthday and we reserved tables in advance . The set up was perfect. Drinks were easy with the staff staying on top of things. Very quick, friendly and on top of everything. Thought the music was perfect. The vintage games around were awesome. I was expecting them to be run down but they were perfect. Made it alot of fun and I recommend anyone looking for a fun place to chill to look into barcade.

Not much for vintage arcade games, but the concept is interesting nonetheless. The reason for my visit was definitely the beer (selection). One of the best beers I tried in New York, I had here in the Habanero Sculpin, which had a nice spicy finish.

Old school arcade games at reasonable prices via tokens. Excellent beer selection at fair prices with good bartenders. Gets a little crowded at times, but can you ask for much more?

There's both a great selection of beer and old video games at Barcade. So, it's basically perfect. I've been to Barcade twice, both on pub crawls around Brooklyn. The next time around I'll have to make it a dedicated stop. The tap menu's impressive; there were a couple dozen options available, and the selection included a ton of beers I haven't tried before. The video game selection included the classics from the 80s and 90s, along with a few that I hadn't seen before, but played pretty well. Most games are a quarter. The space itself is enormous, and they don't go out of their way with the decor (but that's okay given the other perks). I'd definitely be back, and I'd recommend you check it out if you're interested in good beer selections and want to play through your favorite video game cabinets.

Happy hour until 800pm!? Sold... I love this spot. Right of the L / G trains. Super clean and I would say a little hipster. The bartenders are pretty nice. They have a variety of beer options. And you can play VERY old lady pac man, ninja turtles and more.. It's a great spot to check out on a Friday after work, want to pre game.

Great beer and 90's arcade games (The Simpsons arcade game! Literally one of the best ever made). I also appreciate that they kept the cost of games at a quarter. Great place to drink while being nostalgic. There's more than enough games so that, even when crowded, it doesn't seem like there would be long waits.

So Nostalgic for those of us that grew up playing arcade games. Bartender said the arcade games rotate so I wasnt able to play Contra. Would like to see some fighting games such as Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat but either way had a lot of fun. Beer selection was OK as well with a good selection of craft beer.
