No bar has a better collection of ’70s lunch boxes, and the rollicking jukebox ain’t half bad, either. Recreational opportunities abound at roomy Ace (two pool tables, Big Buck Hunter), and the 2-to-7pm happy hour, six days a week, is perfect for the serious afternoon drinker (14 beers on tap let you keep the pints rotating). Beautiful locals are attracted by the clublike exterior; inside, the pool-hall atmosphere makes it an excellent place for a birthday party or just a beer among friends.
