NEW HAVEN -- If you’re a child of the 80s, have we got a hangout for you – and the gangs all here. Barcade is a combination bar and arcade with a focus on classic video games and American craft beer.
Inside Barcade are 50 classic arcade games – games that will bring baby boomers back to how bad they were.
"There are the people who are our age and come in and say ‘Tapper? I haven’t seen this game in 30 years - it totally brings me back,'” said Paul Kermizian.
Kermizian hopes that players young and old will come with two goals: to get their name on that elusive high score list, and to enjoy revisiting their childhood, one quarter at a time.
Barcade is definitely aimed at the old-school gamer – kids aren't allowed inside. The part restaurant, part bar, part memory lane trip opens this weekend.
