Some bars have a video game or two, but Barcade is filled with them. Each of the three NYC locations has an abundance of vintage game machines, and they also have a lot of craft beer.

Stop by with some friends, or bring a date if you’ve already demonstrated some maturity and now you just want to play Street Fighter.
