    Three floors and 8,000 square feet make for lots of viewing space in this Union Square sports bar, so if you've got a big group, call ahead to reserve your spot. Read more

    Amazing beer selection, both on tap and cans/bottles. Food menu should cover your needs, they even have a brunch menu until noon.

    Multi-story bar with plenty of space and plenty of screens for watching sports while hanging out. Also have bar games to play as well, and pretty good appetizers.

    It can be brotastic at times, but it's spacious and has a little something for everyone, whether a tourist, a TV watcher or game player.

    Great selection of beers and a big pool table. Great place to bring a big group of friends and throw back a few cold ones before heading out.

    This place is awesome! Give me skeeball, pool, giant tvs and a great craft beer list and I'm a happy drinker. This place has it all. Not just for tourist!

    So many games to play, from fooseball, skeeball, and more. Big beer selection. $6 gets you a spin on the drink roulette wheel. Currently only open till midnight, though.

    Great spot for a decent draught selection and yummy bar bites. Shuffle boards, arcade games, sports and banter.

    Great beer selection, but the main reason you're here is to play Buck Hunter/skeeball/shuffleboard. Better on weeknights, gets super crowded and fratty over the weekend.

    Spin the wheel of beers! It's worth the $6 plus they've got skee ball, shuffle board and the place is very spacious.

    There is a lot of fun to be had here, but if you drink too much, take the elevator back down. The stairs may be too much for you.

    Grab a beer and play some pool, skeeball, or just watch the game one of their many giant tvs.

    Everything seems to be a game of chance here. After I ordered, the bartender told me he gave me $2 off my burger, and the beer was free. Your mileage may vary.

    Entry-level craft beer list, but cool place! Can't wait to see what else they bring in once they are fully open.

    Not best place for a night focused on arcade/video games, even on a not busy days. 2 pinball machines often break, Wacky Gator intended for single mallet/hand. Not regulation skee ball lane length.

    Uber-touristy, and a middling beer list, but it's good to watch a game.

    Cheap happy hour drinks but avoid food. Rotting celery one week, stone cold wings the next. Also the prices are misleading, happy hour doesn't get you a full order of food

    On a crowded day, sneak in through the back entrance around the corner.
