No bar has a better collection of ’70s lunch boxes, and the rollicking jukebox ain’t half bad, either. This souped-up rec room offers two pool tables, skeeball, darts, pinball, arcade favorites like Big Buck Hunter, and more. The five-hour happy hour means you can rotate pitchers and pints among the 14 brews on tap. Locals are first drawn in by the clublike exterior, but stay for the chill, pool-hall atmosphere that suits both birthday bashes or a few beers between friends.

Hit this place up on a Saturday night and you'll find a loaded bar. It get's very crowded, very fast. But for good reason. Great service, great drinks and a fun atmosphere.
ACE bar is one of my favorites in the city. Shockingly more spacious than any other drinking spot in East Village, ACE bar has a very down to earth vibe. The beer selection is a bit lacking, but they make up for it in quality bar games: darts and pool among the favorites. Personally, I love showing off my sick skee ball skills and generally enjoying the elbow room toward the back of the bar.
