Barcade Planning to Open in Newark

Newark, New Jersey: A regional arcade bar is planning to open a location in Newark.

Barcade will be coming to 494 Broad Street, at the corner of Bridge Street, in the city's Downtown. The company currently operates locations in Downtown Jersey City, Chelsea and East Village in Manhattan, Fishtown in Philadelphia, Williamsburg in Brooklyn, and New Haven in Connecticut. The Newark location is slated to open at the beginning of next year, according to the business Twitter account. A variety of items are served, ranging from craft beers to burgers and sandwiches.

This is one of several new businesses coming to the area. Planet Fitness and Street Corner will also open in Downtown just a block away within the IDT Building.

The space is currently occupied by the Martini 494 Bistro, which will be closing on December 16th, according to an employee. Martini's Millburn location closed earlier this year as well, and is being replaced by The Hills Tavern.
