Barcadia - Closed

2600 Travis Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-523-2525

Location Description:

Following the same template as Joystix and the adjoining Eighteen Twenty Bar near Minute Maid Park, Midtown's Barcadia mixes booze, food and video games for children of the skeeball, Frogger and Mortal Kombat generation. Located next door to Reef/3rd Bar, Barcadia is packed with vintage arcade games and pinball machines, including a cherry KISS unit that has likely sucked down many a quarter. Tuesday nights feature cheap Texas pints and free play on all machines, while Mondays the bar offers up an all-night happy hour and half off all food. The only thing Barcadia lacks is your mother screaming at you to stop playing those damned games and finish your homework.
