Reviews / Restaurant

“Barcades” have become staples in up-and-coming hip cities, and Richmond, Virginia, is no exception. The fast-growing neighborhood of Scott’s Addition features a bevy of new hangouts, including the bright and spacious Tang & Biscuit, a gathering place for kids of all ages.

 

The cavernous games hall centralizes on 10 full-sized shuffleboard courts and colorful lettered art along the massive walls. Guests can sign up for games between two rows of courts, and teams are announced over the loudspeaker when courts become available. Opposite the courts is a 50-foot bar that serves 16 beers on draft and specialty cocktails made with Tang, like the Oranjutang Lightbulb, made with Belle Isle Moonshine, triple sec and Tang, and served in a light bulb glass with a straw.

 

The “biscuit” part of the establishment’s name is widely featured on the food menu with a whole category dedicated to the flaky pastry served in a variety of ways: grilled cheese, chicken ranch or Texican style with pulled brisket, salsa, cheddar and jalapenos. The kitchen also serves a few styles of tots, salads, flatbreads and wings.

 

Other games in Tang & Biscuit include a cartful of classics like Apples to Apples, Code Names and Jenga, as well as a back room with ping pong and corn hole.

 

The games hall is open on weeknights starting at 4 p.m. and on weekends from 11 a.m. until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
