First time drinking outside of california, at a bar that is, also my first real east coast drinking experience.

My friend, who's from San Fran and moved to brooklyn, takes me here first thing. This place is RAD. I walk in and they're blasting Iron Maiden (the music selection kept on getting better, Pentagram, King Diamond, Niel Young, good mix). The space looks like it once might have been a old fire station or something, maybe even a auto repair shop or something. The walls are lined with old arcade games from the 80s. All the classics are there, Mr/Ms Pacman, etc. I never got around to playing the games, but I wish I had.

The beer was great. I finally had HopDevil which was amazing. My friend kept on handing me beers I've never had, which was pretty much everything. The selection was great! I wish I could remember what I had, but i had alot. The bartender was really nice too. Kinda like Stu from the Tornonado SF, but with less attitude and more hair.

Overall, great fucking place. Great vibes. If I ever go back to brooklyn, this is where I will go to drink, and hopefully get some arcade time in too.

The selection is fantastic here. I never tried the cocktails or food (do they really serve food? Maybe, but I never noticed.) But the beers are great, for a decent price. And of course the retro games and atmosphere are fun. Just beware of how crowded it gets on weekends.

It's a bar that's also an arcade. Get it? What more is there to say?

Fine. I can say a bit more. They have good prices on great beer (most beers are $6, many beers have over 90 on Beer Advocate. They've even had Bourbon County Stout on draft a few times!). I believe happy hour runs 7 days a week. Happy hour means beers are $1 cheaper. Marble Madness is a really fun game but I don't really want to promote it because I like how no one's ever playing it when I go there. It's also impossible to beat by level 4. Anyway, this place gets super crowded pretty early on Friday and Saturday nights, but during the day and during the week, it's a great, spacious place to chill out.

I come here 9 out of 10 times I'm in Williamsburg. You should too.
