With the weekend approaching, one of the biggest internet searches is for local bars and “things to do” in your area. Putting a hectic week of work and schooling aside, going out for dinner and drinks is always a quick, welcome getaway. However, what if we told you that you could have even more fun while still having those adult beverages? Barcades are one of the fastest growing trends around the country. And for very good reason.


Arcade meets bar, and it was love at first sight.

If you’ve never heard of, or never experienced an arcade bar (barcade), now is the time. As a growing trend, arcade bars are not only a great escape from a long week, but also a great way to revisit your favorite childhood memories. As you enter the door, the sounds instantly transport you to earlier days when challenging your friend for bragging rights was one of the many highlights of the night. Beyond the thrill of a good challenge, there is a drink in hand making everything that much more exciting! Games, challenges, laughs, and bragging rights – count us in.
