Thanks for the review! However, I think you meant arcade video games as we do not have pinball games at that location currently. Cheers! Barcade

We'd heard about the bar and knew when we arrived in New York we'd be heading straight for it! We spent the day in Brooklyn and this was the highlight. Tonnes of old games from my childhood, great draught beer and lovely staff.
