BARCADE PHILADELPHIA is located at 1114 Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. A triumph in reclamation design, Barcade Philly is located in a former electrical-supply warehouse with woodbeam ceilings and corrugated steel walls that the owners renovated themselves. In fact, after removing piles of debris from the space, Barcade’s owners then repurposed much of the old wood into the current bar itself.
Barcade features a combination of classic arcade games and craft beers handpicked from local craft breweries. Barcade has eight locations throughout the northeastern United States. With a new location in Midtown Detroit opening late 2019.
Twenty-five beers are available on draft and cask at each location, and all are chosen exclusively from top American craft breweries. The selection leans towards local breweries from the northeast, including Brooklyn Brewery, Sixpoint Brewery, Cape Ann Brewing, Dogfish Head, Victory Brewing and Captain Lawrence Brewing.
Like the beer selection, the classic video games at each location are handpicked as well. Some examples of the arcade games you’ll find at Barcade include: Tapper, Q*bert, Donkey Kong, Tetris, Daytona USA, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men, Marvel vs. Capcom and Mortal Kombat.
The original Barcade opened in 2004 in a former metal shop at 388 Union Avenue in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. All locations are owned and operated by the founders and each is infused with the same gritty, authentic spirit that made the original such a hit with local artists, musicians, and key influencers.
