Barcade is plugged in

The Brooklyn-rooted bar+arcade has opened in Fishtown.

Barcade is plugged in

City permits finally signed and liquor license approved, Barcade has opened on Frankford Avenue between Delaware and Girard Avenue in Fishtown.

Barcade -- as in bar + arcade -- combines two passions: American craft beers and a lineup of classic arcade games. Neat menu, too.

For the third location, the Brooklyn-rooted ownership chose a former warehouse, whose bones they left pretty much intact. Main bar is in the front room, while a cavernous room houses 35 arcade games, including Double Dragon, Ms. Pac Man and BurgerTime.

Hours are 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday; noon to 2 a.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Lunch special, on Friday and Sunday, is $10 for any sandwich, beer and chips.
