An amazing bar and experience. Big, open ceilings with vintage arcade games lining every wall - and still for 25 cents a play! The bar itself is long, and their tap list was phenomenal: unique and rare offerings from southampton, brooklyn, sly fox, ithaca, dfh, captain lawrence, climax, victory, rogue and many more...and a cask from troegs, which was phenomenal. The beer prices were surprisingly low - 5 bucks for most pints, 6 bucks for imperials. A place I would definitely visit again - perhaps on a weeknight to enjoy the scene more. (540 characters)

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. (272 characters)

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. (747 characters)
