4.22/5 rDev -1.6%
Made my second visit to Barcade earlier this month
Saturday afternoon session and the place was pretty packed
Happy hour is $5 for all of the (24) draft beers and although advertised as 5pm to 8pm, we purchased our first round at 4.30pm and were charged 20 bucks for 4 pints - bonus !!!
The cask beer was in excellent condition (honestly can't remember what it was), but a hoppy number for sure and the barman knew how to serve it correctly, not always the case in some bars!
A good selection on draft with a large number (15 or 16) from New York state or New England states micro breweries
Service was good bearing in mind there was only one barman working and the place was busy, but he was prone to serving regulars first who had clearly rolled up at the bar after us, a pet hate of mine!
The arcade games (30+) still operate on quarters, so cheap drinks, cheap games (if that floats your boat) and good fun all round!

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.
