One frequent charge against hipster bars is that they're filled with loud post-pubescent man-children trying loudly and desperately to out-cool each other. Barcade has other Freudian issues at play, literally. Even on the most crowded day, you'll see small groups of pale OKCupid dates gathered around their digital hearth, hoping aging Frogger or Paperboy machines will provide a smooth pathway into flirtatious conversation (or adolescent regression). That said, the couple who plays Tapper—the most under-appreciated of vintage arcade games—has a chance of making it to awkward sex.
