Best Bar With a Shtick Inspired by a Silly Pun (2008)

BARCADE

Better for boys' night out than first-date romance—I found out the hard way—this Williamsburg half-bar half-arcade (so, BARCADE) looks like the foot soldier hangout from the first Ninja Turtles movie. The epitome of misspent youth, Barcade doesn't have Shredder, but Smash TV is there; so are Tapper, 1943, and Tetris (though FYI that game's joystick is broken). If you do take a date, don't keep punching her character's face in Rampage.
