For me, and many others, the 80's was very much about video games. Fellow Louper Seth R.'s father developed them and had several of them in his basement. We frequented arcades and dumped our allowance into those stand-up machines. It was the precipice of computing power, and it seems most of that power was being used by gamers to gobble up coins and avoid Ghosts! Now all those arcade junkies are all grown up and can legally drink. Therefore, a number of enterprising entrepreneurs have tapped into this unmet demand of a grownup establishment where patrons can drink good beer (and other cocktails) and play retro style video games. My first visit to Barcade in Williamsburg was when it opened years ago. Just recently, I checked out one on their newer locations in Chelsea. This is a typical bar with every possible 80's game you have ever played around the perimeter. Patrons happily drink artisanal beers and cocktails while playing Donkey Kong, Centipede, Frogger or my favorite, Q-bert!
