    Dart board at the back. Be careful it's not foosball night as the spaces overlap.

    Good soccer bar. But the $20 card minimum is the highest in Brooklyn. Come on, guys.

    Great for the Presidential Debates - but it takes them a while to work through a crowd.

    Hands down the best place to watch footy in NYC. Non-denominational (but the crowd leans Arsenal and Liverpool). Always a good atmosphere and impeccable tap list.

    Best Foosball table in The NYC area. Thursday is Foosball night at Banter Bar with $4 craft beer and $5 shot specials for foosers. All the bartenders are awesome and nice.

    Start your day with a bacon, egg and cheese pie at Banter Bar, which has 24 beers on tap and a serious soccer obsession. The international crowd and flawlessly placed screens are reasons for a visit. Read more

    Best for an excellent beer selection or night of trivia. Avoid the food in general; there're better places around to eat.

    The simple panini and savory pies are fine fare, especially the sandwich with smoked turkey, gouda, and leeks. Lots of whiskeys, too. Read more

    Great beer and bartenders. Amazing tap beer (24 kinds, rotating & only good). Best comfortable bar in Williamsburg. It's a place that you'll have a hard time not making a local because of the people.

    There are 24 draughts on tap, including Dogfish Head, 60 Minute & Delirium Tremens. The kitchen offers a classy panini menu - imagine a portobello/fontina/rosemary combo topped with a balsamic drizz. Read more
