Time Out says

You can now play a little pétanque with your pals at Industry City thanks to Carreau Club with indoor and outdoor courts. For the uninitiated, pétanque (pronounced puh-TONK) is a bocce-ball style French boules sport gaining popularity in the U.S., starting here in NYC.

For those new to the sport, don't worry: Each court reservation comes with a lesson from a pétanque guide, plus equipment and a seating area. For the more competitive pétanque player, there's a league with weekly games.

Carreau Club operates primarily as a walk-in pétanque club, and reservations are not required. But you can book a court in advance for a single party or multiple courts for larger groups. Reservations cost $50/court/hour.

It wouldn't be a French-inspired boulebar without a great menu, and Carreau Club delivers with a full bar, craft beer, wine and cocktails. Plus, a small deli counter will serve French-inspired salads, crispy socca waffles, pissaladière (flatbreads), and sandwiches including lamb merguez "mitraillette," jambon beurre, and pan bagnat.

Find Carreau Club at 68 34th Street in Building 6 of Industry City, a 35-acre, all-season campus with rotating events, shops, food and drinks drawing 10,000 visitors every weekend weekend.

Impress your friends with this fun fact while you play: The game dates back to ancient Rome and is popular in France. It's often the game played on the streets during Bastille Day.
