Romantic Adventures: The Best Bar Games in NYC

They say the couple that plays together stays together. Let the games begin.

You Got Game

1. Tight on funds? Take advantage of free Skee-Ball at Full Circle Bar in Brooklyn, happy hour ‘til 9pm at R-Bar, free video games at The Commodore and even more 25-cent arcade classics at dog-friendly Barcade.

2. Head to The Gutter, featuring 12 craft brews on tap, if you can spare $7 for a round of bowling or splurge at LEED-certified Brooklyn Bowl ($20/half hour) for some fried chicken and live music; throw a few back at the large, unpretentious bar while you wait. Full Circle Bar: 318 Grand Street, Williamsburg; Barcade: 388 Union Ave, Williamsburg; R-Bar: 451 Meeker Ave, Greenpoint; The Commodore: 366 Metropolitan Ave, Williamsburg; The Gutter: 200 N. 14th St, Williamsburg; Brooklyn Bowl: 61 Wythe Ave., Williamsburg

3. Take the short bus (they’ll pick you up at the Carroll St. F/G stop) to your one stop fun shop, Brooklyn Crab. The harborside spot offers bocce, a full mini-golf course and cornhole in one glorious shack. Brooklyn Crab: 24 Reed St at Pioneer St, Red Hook

4. If cracking crabs al fresco with beer buckets isn’t enough to keep you in one place, find more intimate post-game refreshments at home/made wine bar for small plates in a crafty accessories store; or skip over to Pok Pok Ny for a taste of Thai through Andy Ricker’s creative Portland prism. home/made Wine Bar: 293 Van Brunt St, Red Hook; Pok Pok Ny: 117 Columbia St, Red Hook
