    Jukebox? Check. Cheap? Check. Games? Triple check. Walking down the steps of Rocket Bar is like walking into the games room of your dreams, complete with dart boards to get your game on!

    You can order food to be delivered. There are enough pool tables around. And even a jukebox machine where you can pay to listen to your favorite songs to be played.

    Learned here I'm terrible at shuffleboard. Plus, it's a dive bar. Blink, and you'll miss the entrance. Surprisingly good martini, however.

    There is usually a wait for the pool tables but they do it in an organized fashion so you don't wait too long.

    Probably the best billards and gaming bar in Chinatown. The basement feel is a plus, but be warned, it can get a little too packed on weekends if you dont like fighting towards the bar

    They let you bring in your own food, which is awesome because Shake Shack is two blocks away!

    Cool late night place if you want to play games. Not so great during the day since it's really dark and in the basement. Kind of trashy.

    Cool little dive that's mostly hidden next to the Ruby Tuesday in Chinatown. Cheap alcohol, great atmosphere, tons of games. Get there early and grab a booth in the back.

    Darts cost $2.12. Not a bad deal, particularly since you can play all night.

    Definitely a chill spot. Music low enough to talk and lots of pool and darts to play!

    There's no kitchen or coffee, but you can order delivery from California Tortilla, and they have Red Bull.

    Yes, it smells like pee, sometimes vom, here. Totally okay, because there's Skee Ball, Ice Hockey and pool tables in Chinatown.

    Cheap and loud. Good for groups or for listening to the jukebox while downing some shots and cocktails.

    whoever the crazy bitch is that didn't like this place is clearly not a sports fan. this is a great place pre & post games (especially caps)!

    Thumbs down on the decision to shitcan the foosball table in favor of that air-hockey-for-mongoloids "Boomerang" game. I'll never darken the doors of this anus-scented shitdump again!

    After a Caps game, this is a good place to hang out while waiting for the crowd at the metro station to thin out a little bit
