Barcade in New York City

Manhattan's Barcade® is a combination bar and arcade with a focus on classic arcade games and American craft beer.

Barcade®, established in 2004, is the Original Arcade Bar: a combination bar and arcade. Company founders; Paul Kermizian, Pete Langway, and brothers Kevin and Scott Beard currently own and operate eight locations in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and California.

The original Barcade opened on Union Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Working in advertising, film, and television at the time, the Beard brothers inspired their group of friends to open a neighborhood bar with them, focused on American craft beer and classic video games.

Barcade began utilizing the tagline “The Original Arcade Bar” in 2015 as a way to distinguish itself from the hundreds of arcade bars that opened across the United States.

Barcade has a full bar offering beer, wine, and spirits, with a focus on craft spirits and cocktails. The menu consists of sandwiches, appetizers, and other variations of classic pub food.
