ECLECTIC has become an overused word in recent years but it may still be fairly applied to nightlife in Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s least easy-to-define neighborhood. From hookup havens to cocktail lounges to bier halls, the world class bar scene stems from a culture clash with few rivals in New York or anywhere.
Barcade’s raison d’etre is thirty vintage video game titles, including Donkey Kong, Frogger, Asteroids, Punch Out!, Gauntlet, DigDug, and many others. Supplement that geeky awesomeness with 25 tap beers featuring a strong local presence, chill bartenders, and even small shelves between games to hold your pint while you blast aliens and rescue princesses.
