    This was a go-to during my grad school days at NYU, Ace Bar was always used as the "example" for & foursquare use cases. It's still the first place I think of when testing new features.

    One of my favorite bars in the east village. Buck hunter, skee ball, darts, and pool tables. Play all four games in a World Series with your friends.

    Ace Bar's got a little bit of everything: pinball machines, skee-ball, Big Buck Hunter HD, & pool for a dollar per game. You can also play a round of darts or show up to Sunday trivia night for free. Read more

    Will be my new spot in alphabet city. I love this place. There's plenty of space, $3 & $4 beers during happy hour, excellent service and you're right across from black iron burger. 👌🏻

    Super fun bar with cheap happy hour deals (including weekend midday - $3 drafts)... few arcade games, plus billiards and skeeball- for a cost, but great activity

    Skee ball, darts and pinball... Oh my! Great bar! Be aware that it gets crowded and can be a little fratty on some nights. Still fun, though.

    The grilled lemongrass chicken is delicious, but I'm assuming so is everything else on the menu. Also can't be beat for the price!

    They have 2 dart boards, 2 ski ball tables and a pool table. I was there on Friday at 10pm and it was a younger crowd (21-25).

    A dive bar with power outlets at the bar. Get smashed and charge your phone at the same time! So efficient.

    Great weeknight bar, gets crowded on the weekends. Play pool, skeeball, Buck Hunter or darts and just enjoy pure divey-ness.

    Skee ball is great, but it'll swallow your quarters; better off using cash. And be careful with the darts!

    You have to pay separately for both the skee ball and pool table. Do try the ace pear cider!

    miller high life only $3, SCORE! but their stern pinball machines are not that exciting, could use an upgrade if they expect to keep the "pinboys" attendance, or you could play real games in the back Read more

    Does this bar look familiar? Ace Bar was featured in the Netflix series, Master of None starring Aziz Ansari.

    Transformers pinball = best modern machine in city. Good for beer + recreation post Minca or Black Iron Burger.

    When in doubt, this place is always a good birthday option. It's large enough where it's never super crowded AND has games!

    See that comment there below from "Michael Aiingorn"? (Aka: Ayngorn, Einhorn, Aingorn, Ainhorn, etc.) Don't accept one of his ATMs. He is a criminal scam artist. Real company name: FTF Inc.
