    Three floors and 8,000 square feet make for lots of viewing space in this Union Square sports bar, so if you've got a big group, call ahead to reserve your spot. Read more

    Staff's nice but food's terrible and there are too many games going on at once - not much spirit/fans
  • Christie H.

    Great beer selection, sometimes the beer line gets long so get someone from your group to go up and fetch all the beers.

    Not best place for a night focused on arcade/video games, even on a not busy days. 2 pinball machines often break, Wacky Gator intended for single mallet/hand. Not regulation skee ball lane length.

    There is a lot of fun to be had here, but if you drink too much, take the elevator back down. The stairs may be too much for you.

    Everything seems to be a game of chance here. After I ordered, the bartender told me he gave me $2 off my burger, and the beer was free. Your mileage may vary.

    Great beer selection, but the main reason you're here is to play Buck Hunter/skeeball/shuffleboard. Better on weeknights, gets super crowded and fratty over the weekend.

    Pretty sure this place uses "fake" pint glasses – they are 14 oz, not 16, with a thicker bottom to make them feel normal.

    Cheap happy hour drinks but avoid food. Rotting celery one week, stone cold wings the next. Also the prices are misleading, happy hour doesn't get you a full order of food
