After a weekend of rumors running rampant of “freinds and family” previews and a soft launch, Philly’s Barcade announced via Twitter last night that the long-awaited craft beer and vintage arcade game bar was “open for business.” According to the website, a grand opening will take place tonight. The bar boasts 25 taps devoted to American craft brews, including draughts from Victory, Yards, Troegs, Dogfish Head and more. Games include everything from Ms. PacMan and Donkey Kong to Burger Time and Spy Hunter. It’s open Mondays through Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.; and Fridays through Sundays from 12 noon to 2 a.m.. Happy hours are offered Monday through Friday from 4 to 7 p.m.
