Our passion for arcades and arcade machines never dampens.
The sounds and smells of an Arcade invoke so many memories and bring a sense of joy to us as gamers.
Therefore we have been inspired to scour the world and bring to YOU the finest examples of the Arcade.
So we'll be bringing you our findings over the next few weeks….
Let's kick off with a trip to BROOKLYN!
The finest beer and an amazing collection of vintage Arcade machines…..
A perfect mix surely?
That's exactly what you get at BARCADE in Brooklyn
Barcade is a combination of bar and arcade with a focus on vintage video games and craft beer.
Barcade was opened in 2004 in a former metal shop on Union Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Before the time of the opening of Barcade one of the owners was making a road trip documentary profiling the American craft beer industry, and this coupled with time drinking craft beer and playing the classic 1980’s video games led to inspire the founders of Barcade to quit their day jobs, max out their credit cards and begin work on creating Barcade!
The founders of Barcade did most of the construction themselves, keeping the look of the metal shop warehouse and garage that the space had been, and the bar opened in the autumn of 2004.
Take a look at some of these cool pictures of BARCADE and we think you'll agree that this is a definite destination on any trip to Brooklyn!
