Barcade is a bar in Brooklyn / New York featuring more than 25 vintage arcade games from the 1980s and draft beer from local and regional microbreweries.... The bar was opened in 2004 in a former metal shop and won immediate acclaim for its unique combination of vintage arcade games and rare American craft beers. Sounds good isn't it?

Well, I'm in New York... I love bar ... I love arcade...so impossible to miss the BARCADE visit... head on to Brooklyn, very easy... thanks to the New York City Subway  Cool

Here we are  arrow



Yeah! I'm ready to enter  Cool  arrow



Just in case... no drinks outside... no problem, I'm here for the games  Tongue



It's a bar... very dark... good for the ambiance  Cool





I'm choosing a table... right in the middle of the room... so I can have an eye on all the games  Grin  arrow



Of course, I'm trying the special beer here  Tongue  arrow



...and I'm ready for trying the games here  Tongue I just need quarters... follow me  arrow



I'm here for the fun... but ... I would like to score on my favorite games... for example this Galaga  Kiss  arrow



Imagine the name of this game  Roll Eyes?  arrow



G'N'G ...Guns N' Roses? ... Nope... Ghosts'n'Goblins  Kiss Kiss Kiss  arrow



Any Berzerk fans around?  Roll Eyes Grin  arrow



... there's not a lot of people right now... because it's very early I would say...





This is clearly not the kind of place for Darth Nunette : Rock music ... loud volume... beers ... LOL  Grin ... but she's alright ...  Kiss  arrow



OK, from this point I decide to get some fun... Because I want to play the game, I give to my wife the mission to take pictures of the cabinets... she's a real pro for that now  Kiss  So, here's what you can play here :







SlyFox?  arrow



Tapper of course Grin  arrow

Some Canadian guys (I presume because of the t-shirt) playing Gauntlet :



I love the ambiance of this place! When rock & arcade unites  Cool







I still have an eye on Darth Nunette... or maybe she has an eye on me ... Roll Eyes Grin  arrow



Back on the two games I really enjoyed to play here ... no surprise...  Tongue  Roll Eyes  Grin  arrow





I really enjoy to see people still having fun on these old games  Kiss







TAPPER ... the perfect location for this cabinet  Grin  arrow



The toilets... arghh... I didn't have a pen for writing something like : "Nuno was here"  Roll Eyes Grin  arrow



OK, it's time to go back to Manhattan... a last picture... did you recognize some characters?  Wink



This one is easy  Tongue  arrow



It was a nice ArcadeLifeStyle moment here  Kiss  If you are in New York, you MUST go there  Cool

Oh..and as usual... a *free* video tour  Cool

Nice bar, there must be a good atmosphere when it is a bit more crowded. Does anyone know of such a place in Europe, I mean with classic arcade games?

I went there when I was in NY last February... I'm not 21 yet, but I got "smuggled" in by Ben Falls (ex-Moon Patrol wr holder, D2K wr holder, official 4th place on DK) and Hank Chien (current DK wr holder), who frequently go there. I didn't dare to order anything, in fear of being thrown out, but I don't like or drink beer anyway so that wasn't too much of an issue. Played some DK, Moon Patrol, Crystal Castles, Marble Madness, Tetris, Centipede ... before I had to leave early because I was flying back home the next morning. Had a great time though, really fun place and had the opportunity to hang out with a couple of fun people. Smiley
