So let me get this straight: there's a place where I can sip on craft beer for only 5 bucks a pint while playing the original Donkey Kong for only 25 cents a game?

Sign me up.

This place is very, very rad. The beer selection is very good, if not great, and the arcade game selection is incredible. They have 25 taps - you can check to see what they have on their website - but it's safe to say they have something for just about anyone, but no Belgians, if memory serves me correctly (but that area is already well-covered by Spuyten Duyvil and Mugs, just a few blocks away). They mostly offer local or nearly-local beers covering a range of styles, and they're pretty darn cheap. Definitely check it out, it's a genuinely entertaining place for good beer. (762 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)
