The wife and I left Johnny Brenda’s earlier than expected and heading back to the car, I spotted a big “BARCADE” sign. We had had enough beers and bar visits on us that day but, hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.

I had recently visited and reviewed Barcade Brooklyn and loved the space and how chill and empty it was. It was hipster but quiet. The Philadelphia version was, at least on a Saturday night, a totally different story. It was so immensely packed we could barely move around. Lucky for me I made my way to the bar (which is right across from the main entrance) and managed to order two beers, a Wookey Jack for the wife and a Sixpoint Bolshoi for me. 13 dollars for both, not too bad. The menu is written on chalkboard and straddles a good amount of wall space so forget about reading it all on a packed night.

I didn’t see any of the arcade games that made Barcade famous… but let me tell you, we hung outside at a cobblestoned patio by the entrance and it was rather lovely. The bouncer was pissed, folks were pissed in the British sense and the clientele struck me as douchey.
