Washington

3.88/5  rDev -3.2%

Great variety of regional beers. Several from Sixpoint, Victory, Bavarian, Dock St., Manyunk, Round guys, Roy Pitz, sly Fox, Troegs, and Weyerbacher. I counted 24 taps plus cask (Victory Ranch R IPA).

Big roomy L-shaped place. The end with the bar towards the street is quieter with no speakers. This is truly a neighborhood experience, assuming your neighborhood is slowly coming back from being depopulated and bombed out. But it's close to the elevated train station and not actually as scary as three-fourths of old Philly.

A little patch of dirt by the side entry for smoking and another smoke-free zone by the graffitied truck trailer. This is the new post-industrial landscape. Barcade is the vanguard, surrounded by boarded-up factory buildings.

About 40 arcade video games are the main attraction, plus music from First Wave to trash thrash. NIcely arranged bar area with an assortment of surplus institutional chairs. Decor is partly cleaned brick with woodwork distressed by the industrial past. Food ranges from pickled hop shoots to orange-thyme tofu sandwich. Overall, a memorable joint and it's on my list next trip to Philadelphia.
