They had us at giant Jenga. Union Square’s newest bar took over music venue Precinct (itself a former police station) to offer a one-bar-fits-all setting. The space breaks down into three interlocking Venn circles: shuffleboard and tabletop Pac-Man on one side, a (slightly) more sedate brass and wooden bar on the other, and a vast patio outside complete with cornhole and the aforementioned Jenga. Common to all is a cocktail menu divided into “beginner,” “intermediate,” and “expert” drinking categories and a 23-draft-strong beer menu.
