What do you get when you mix 34 arcade games and 25 beers on draft?
It's Barcade, a lively bar coming to a former electrical-supply warehouse on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown in mid-September.
Partners Paul Kermizian and Pete Langway, who have Barcades in Brooklyn and Jersey City, say they'd been scouting Philly for several years.
Over the course of a year, they scooped out mounds of debris from the building at 1114 Frankford Ave., between Girard Avenue and Delaware Avenue and up the street from the Barbary. It's a cool, old building with a vaulted wood-beam ceiling and corrugated-steel walls. They reclaimed much of the material -- wood was shaped into the bar.
