    This was a go-to during my grad school days at NYU, Ace Bar was always used as the "example" for & foursquare use cases. It's still the first place I think of when testing new features.

    ace bar recently redesigned the inside of their bar, moving skeeball to the back, and adding 3 huge booths where skeeball used to be.

    The skee ball machine on the right is better than the one on the left.

    If you plan to pass out on the skee ball ramp, bring a pillow.

    Not the best big buck hunter game, but the air conditioning was pumping and on 100+degree days that matters, drink prices are reasonable too

    RDW · July 23, 2011
  • Erin G.

    Borderline too classy for my taste, but I can't say no to Buck Hunter & skee ball. Go on a weekday to avoid a crowd.

    miller high life only $3, SCORE! but their stern pinball machines are not that exciting, could use an upgrade if they expect to keep the "pinboys" attendance, or you could play real games in the back Read more

    Don't come here. The bartenders can't keep tabs straight and will bill other people's drinks to you and not settle it properly
