As kids we loved making trips to the arcade in Bayville on Long Island, so we love the combination of old arcade games and craft beer, which is why Barcade is so awesome. We have visited the original in Williamsburg and now the newly opened one in Jersey City (we thoroughly enjoyed the Barcade Watch at Beertography). The arcade games range from Contra to Tapper and feature convenient ledges on which you can rest your beer while slamming quarters into the machines. The beer selection is always solid and the Jersey City location has a selection of brews not available in NYC. There are featured breweries on Thursday nights – we attended the Epic Brewing event last week in Jersey City, and tomorrow, July 21, the Williamsburg location will host Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project.
