Upstairs in this bi-level bar, boozers chomp miniburgers and nip at microbrews like Sixpoint in the gentlemen’s-club–style anteroom (decorated with Soviet-era globes, paintings of fez-capped men, fireplaces)—before battling it out on the clay bocce courts. Downstairs, spectators are treated to a rotating roster of live talent, such as blaring bands, comedians and a monthly science night.

south brooklyn may be a bit of trek for some but trust me, this place is worth it. the upstairs bar is large but cozy with a fireplace and bookshelves but what i love most are the storytelling and comedy events they have downstairs. the shows are cheap and well curated—i always leave laughing my ass off and i prefer them to upright citizens brigade shows.
Fireplace. Bocce. Burgers. I rest my case.
This conveniently located (Union and 5th in P Slope) two-level bar is so laid back and cheap and all around awesome it's a crowd favorite. Check out their website for cool events like trivia, guest DJs, jukebox bingo and comedy shows. That's right, I said jukebox bingo. Test your musical knowledge and win some prizes in the process. Plus, the bocce-playing, beer-drinking crowd is always friendly-Brooklynites.
If you are ever trying to track me down and its a Saturday afternoon, you can most likely find me at Union Hall. I'm part of the Bocce league there and its one of my favorite things about living in NYC. The bocce courts are flat out gorgeous, and its hard to believe they are inside a bar. Whenever I have friends or family visit and I take them to Union Hall they are always blown away by how cool it is. Combine that with the always laid back crowd, and you have the perfect Brooklyn bar.
