Union Hall is a 5,000 square foot bar, restaurant and live music venue in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
It's easy to spend the whole afternoon here. Wait for one of the couches to open by the fire and lounge around while ordering drinks, snacks, or real food. Bocci leagues occupy courts on Sunday's
The crowd is strangely hip, not hip, not hip-hop and hoppy (like beer). Bocce ball is legit-avoid on weekends though. Entertaining events in the basement and a literary aesthetic. Prob good for dates.
This place is the be-all end-all in Brooklyn bars - from live music to bocce ball, taxidermy to comfy sofas and roaring fires, it symbolizes everything that's great about drinking in this borough.
Between the bocce, downstairs indie club & the outdoor beer garden, you won't know what to do with yourself. My tip: Have one of their 40+ beer selections. Cool fact: downstairs bathroom is coed.
Avoid on friday and saturday nights unless you're seeing a show in the basement, as the main floor gets packed, and it's a douchebag-a-rama complete with bouncer. Other nights or afternoons, it's ok.
This place is huge—15,000 feet, former warehouse huge. It’s so cavernous that it becomes like a dozen private bars. Just watch out for couples getting…a little too cozy on the couches.
Sit upstairs where the walls are covered with leather-bound books and a fire roars in front of comfy couches. It’s sort of like the library-meets-bar you wish you had when you went to college.
If you happen to love bocce ball and live music, you’re in luck. Roll a game up top and head downstairs afterwards for a live set from a sure-to-be-cool band. - Jim Shearer, Top 20 Countdown
Quite possibly my favorite Brooklyn bar. Bocce courts on the top floor, decorated like a library, concert/dance parties in the basement, and weather permitting an outdoors area.
I've seen some great concerts and had many a "last" shot. It's never really your last shot. One day, Mike Birbiglia served me a beer. I did a triple take. It was a good beer.
John Hodgman (of Daily Show and Mac & PC fame among other things) has been hosting a somewhat weekly show downstairs called Secret Society. Catch it if you want cheap smart funny comedy.
Get there early to grab a seat! Also, this may make me sound like a wimp but they have really tasty ginger ale for those nights you just can't stomach alcohol.
A great, cozy bar where you can curl up on big, leather-tufted couches next to a fire; get social playing bocce ball or partake in their rotating events downstairs.
Refreshingly large bar for NYC with a relaxed, neighborhood atmosphere. Enjoyed the Union Hall Iced Tea. Lots of couches, small courtyard, and bocce ball!
This looks like a library! Got a negroni (well my bf did...I got a whiskey ginger and it wasn't much to talk about) and that was perfectly made. Good atmosphere!
For a chilled out night by the fireplaces next to the humongous bookcase or a fun night out with friends playing pétanque
This place has everything. Outdoor space, a full stocked library, a bocce ball court, and an underground dance floor. Come at 10, stay til close
Bocce ball, fireplace, books everywhere, plush leather furniture, good vibes and music, nice bartenders, aesthetic is basically Dumbledore's library.
Grab a seat on a weekday after work and checkout a comedy show afterwards. You'll appreciate the quietness as opposed to the noisy weekend crowd.
Grab a comfy chair by the fire and have a pint and an order of sliders. Or enjoy a game of bocce. Or venture downstairs for a live show or a spelling bee.
bocce and beers, but gets a bit brotastic on the weekend. they have great music in the basement and the burger with fig spread is delicious.
Love this spot!! $4 original sin so that I can feel like I'm havin' a beer while my friends really are! Indoor bocce ball...and a faux library with comfy seats. Good for drinkin' and people watching<3
Catch the great comedy show , cheap date, every second Tuesday. The hosts are great and the guest comedians are always really funny!
Avoid the crowds and the noise - go Saturday or Sunday for an afternoon beer and actually get a spot on the couch by the fire. Mmmm cozy :)
Library, bocce court, bar, lounge, club - this place has it all. Well worth the trip to Brooklyn - will be back for sure.
One of my favorite bars in the slope. Good amount of space and perfect for a first date—not fancy but not horribly divey.
This place is horrible!! Workers are rude and completely racist!! Asked nicely in perfect English if I can order food. Their response was "I don't speak Chinese!!!" And walks away.
If you're there for the band, get downstairs a little early and nab one of the church pews along the side to store your stuff under.
Such an awesome spot. As I recall, there is live music downstairs and skeeball in the back. The bar looks like an old library.
Love the faux library atmosphere, the bocce games in the back. Seems like there were mosquitoes or something serious in there tho, got bit like crazy!
Fantastic bar to hang out in. Cavernous yet cozy with plenty of seating, couches, a fireplace and 2 Bocci courts!
There's a load of great beers here. Grab a seat and read one of the books in the cozy fireplace nook.
Go to the 90s dance party every first Saturday of the month and have a blast from the past. The DJs are the best!
Bocce Ball isn’t considered one of the most strenuous of activities, but you can burn up to 250 calories an hour playing this ancient old sport.
Bocce ball! Great vibes at this Park Slope bar. Nice place to come in the winter with the fireplaces going
Boccé is just plain fun. Beer selection is decent, corn dogs were surprising (not on a stick??) but tasty.
Excellent bar with a ton of space and a comfy feel that makes getting drunk feel just a little more awesome.
Fun and cozy, but if you want a good spot or to play bocce definitely get there early.
Curl up next to the fireplace, have a chat with no TV blasting. Or see a show downstairs. You never know what will be on display.
Good place to take the parents, when visiting. Something for everyone and a bit out of the ordinary.
Adult Education, Brooklyn's favorite "useless lecture series," is here the first Tuesday of every month. (Except for July and August, when school is out.)
The cozy fireplace area is perfect on cold Brooklyn nights. (If you can grab a seat.)
Happy hour here is peace on earth. Good cheap beer. Great tunes that fit the vibe. The sounds of bocce is therapeutic.
beer and bocce. also, the fireside seats are magical in the wintertime. just don't steal any of the books...
