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.

Came here once just for the video games. Just as well, because in my hour and a half I don't think I spoke to anyone who worked here.

The video games are worth a separate review, but they're the real draw.

Glancing up occasionally at the beer list it seemed great, lots of weird, offbeat choices. Too bad I never got the inclination to approach what seemed like chilly staff.

I'd go back here if I was with a group.

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.
