Now open

Barricade is now open at 308 E. Center St. Barricade is a concept that has been a long time in the making, and it is finally coming to fruition. Who doesn’t long for the nostalgia of the classic arcade from the 1980s or 1990s? Plus, it’s fun to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine at the bar, but if you don’t play pool, throw darts, or sing karaoke, what are you supposed to do with yourself? Now you can enjoy playing arcade games with your friends while you drink a beer or enjoy a glass of wine. Barricade is a place to hang out and listen to cool music, chat with friends and cheer on a high-score victory! To learn more about Barricade, stop in for a game or two. They are open from 3 p.m. to midnight Tuesday through Saturday. Age 21+.
