    Prefer classic summer jams from Ace of Base over Rihanna and Drake? You are in welcome company at Union Hall in Brooklyn. Shameless 90's sing-alongs are accompanied with $7 drink specials all summer. Read more

    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.

    A big space, with cheap drinks, bocce ball courts, an outdoor courtyard, a downstairs venue that hosts dance parties, and even a cozy, leather-chair covered section for hanging out by the fire.

    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

    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.

    Bar menu expanded from signature beer-cheese on Ritz to deep-fried Apple Cinnamon Cheerios and wild boar sausage. Good selection of beers on tap, hops always goes well with kitsch. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Super cozy spot that's as intimate as it is spacious. Safe bet when you have friends visiting who want a taste of Brooklyn without getting too weird.

    For a chilled out night by the fireplaces next to the humongous bookcase or a fun night out with friends playing pétanque

    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 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.

    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!

    The cozy fireplace area is perfect on cold Brooklyn nights. (If you can grab a seat.)

    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.

    Browse the vintage tomes that line this bar's walls with a bookish date, or head downstairs for one of the venue’s music or comedy shows, such as Eugene Mirman’s weekly Pretty Good Friends. Read more

    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.

    Bocce (traditional Italian bowling), Bronx Double IPA, and amazing friends. The three defining experiences here at Union Hall.

    One of my favorite bars in the slope. Good amount of space and perfect for a first date—not fancy but not horribly divey.

    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

    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!

    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 :)

    Hipsters playing bocce. Hipsters in the library. Hipsters by the fireplace. Hipsters in the garden. You could write a 'Muppets Take Manhattan' movie on this place - hipster style. Read more

    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.

    A bar with books and a fireplace? Yup it's pretty much one of the best laid back bars I've ever been to.
