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.

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.
