Foursquare Tips

  • They have 40's of Colt 45 and Street Fighter. Need I say more?
  • New bar/arcade in the LES features 22 rotating games, a surprisingly sophisticated (yet reasonably priced) selection of wine and sake, craft beer pours, and 40s of Colt 45s (via Thrillist)
  • They have a hacked Street Fighter 2 from when these machines were so rare they were pirated. If you have any more questions, you are too young.
  • High score? What does that mean? Did I break it?
  • They have Puzzle Bobble (Bust-A-Move)!!!
  • Play some buck hunter and drink some cheap beer. This is how life was meant to be.
  • While awaiting your turn on Big Buck HD, pay attention to this advice from 1993 on NBA Jam.
  • What's good here? Buck Hunter HD with a PBR tall boy is what's good here.
  • Hydro Thunder is really the coat rack for Buck Hunter.
  • Great LES bar with well-priced entertainment and drinks. Street Fighter Rainbow Edition will mess you up as will the 40s of Colt 45.
  • Keeping it classy: they only serve beer & wine, no liquor. Bring cash or your laundry quarters; ATM in the back charges $2.50. Try 2 person Tetris, way harder than it looks!
  • This place is a bar/arcade. Have a beer, eat some pizza and play some games!
  • Beers and video games. Two of the 5 food groups!
  • Fill up your pockets with quarters and go to this bar where you can play tons of arcade games all night long.
  • Street fighter 2 champion edition with glitch, 90's hip hop classics, ska, beer... Need I say more?
  • Try the video games.
  • Final Fight has to be the best 2 player arcade game here. Making it to the end will cost you ~$8 depending on skill and teamwork. Play as Haggar the former wrestler & new mayor - also Jessica's Dad!
  • Had such a great time! It gets hot in there so make sure to step outside once in a while!
  • Barcade's better.
  • Yo they got final fight in there.
