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

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

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

    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.

    Don't come here. They yell at you when is time to leave. So disrespectful. We are paying guests. No need to yell at people to get out.... Boycott it...

    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.

    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

    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!
