4. Barcade, Williamsburg


While there are a lots of fans for old-school stand up arcade games and hard-to-find craft beers, you’d be hard pressed to find one place to please a fan of both. Luckily, Barcade exists to fulfill both needs. This spacious destination offers nearly 50 retro games, from Arkanoid to Zoo Keeper nestled between booths and tables. Change machines are available for those saving quarters for laundry and all machines can be played for their original opening price, usually one credit per quarter.

In addition to an impressive collection of decades of video game fun, Barcade boasts an impressive and constantly changing menu of craft beers from all over the country, from seasonals to limited releases, on tap.
