UPDATE 6/3/14: Barcade New York opens TODAY at 12pm. Rumor has it the beer list is going to be pretty epic.
The Barcade empire is expanding! It feels like just yesterday that we published our sneak preivew of Barcade Jersey City and the opening of Barcade Philadelphia. And now, here we are in 2014 with an exclusive first look at the first Barcade to open in Manhattan!
Located at 148 West 24th Street in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, Barcade's fourth location is more than a worthy sequel to it's predecessors. Barcade's owners tell us that their opening is imminent. As in, any time in the next 2 weeks! Keep an eye on their Twitter feed to get the most up to date information.
For those unfamiliar with the other locations, you're in for a real treat. Barcade is just what it sounds like: Bar + Arcade. The twist being that all of the beer is American craft beer and the games are all old school. As you'll notice from some of the photos, whereas previously it was all games from the 80s and earlier, they've finally begun to showcase games from the early 1990s such as X-Men, Daytona USA and NBA Jam. You can check out the full games list by downloading the new Barcade App which also lists evey beer on tap at every Barcade location.
Some of you may recall a few years ago, not long after Barcade Philly opened when we got a group of thirsty folks together and visited ALL THREE Barcades in ONE day. Well, that was one of the best days ever so you KNOW we'll be doing all FOUR in one day. Details coming soon.
