    A 50/50 mix of Dr Pong in Berlin and The Poolbar in Amsterdam. Two of my favourite bars in one, of course it was ace.

    Pool for $6.50 per person / game. Shuffleboard $13 an hour / table. Scrabble is the best deal in the house at $1 per game.

    Really cool, understated place. Amazing live concerts for $3 (entry fee). Fun night getting competitive with the games.

    Live jazz, ping pong, pool, and shuffleboard. $3 cover and good beers. Only downside is huge crowds on weekend nights.

    A huge space offering Foosball, ping pong, billards, live jazz (!) and lots and lots of PBR (amongst many other kinds of beer). Get there early (on weekends) and commandeer a couch/corner. Read more

    Come for the live jazz and all the fun & game. Put your card in for ping pong / billiards ASAP, and challenge some strangers to foosball while you wait.

    The quintessential dive NYC pool room. No-frills, quite spacious, and a great hangout. Plenty of alcohol flowing with table service. Ping-pong in the back. No TVs.

    One if the best hangout spots in the West Village. Excellent for billiards, board games, and fooseball aficionados.

    Hit It Sunday night at 8:30, when it's uncrowded, lotsa game tables are free, & the house Big Band plays. (= The most extraordinary assemblage of young jazz talent in the city, yours for a $3 cover)

    Snag a table with a view of the stage and scrabble it up to some mixed (but usually pretty good) jazz shows.

    Ping pong, billiards, foosball, shuffleboard, board games 👍🏼Barely a wait on a Friday if you come around 6-7pm. But after 10pm there’s a long line on a Friday night.

    Like nowhere else in Manhattan. Grab a bucket of PBRs, ping pong paddles and enjoy the sweet jazz music.

    This place is like no other: live jazz music, free food, pool, table tennis, chess, shuffle board. Wow.

    The co-existence of a concert venue and pool hall is nice on paper, not in reality. You really have to love the music and be able to ignore all the others not listening to it at all.

    A cool little pool hall in the West Village. Where else can you find ping pong, shuffleboard, Scrabble, and jazz under one roof?

    Great for sipping wine and quietly playing scrabble or pounding beers and getting rowdy over a game of ping pong. Also, it's easy on the wallet!

    While this venue features the West Village's best local jazz players, don't be surprised if some heavy hitters stop by to sit in on a few tunes.
