Great Date Spot
This vibrant bar on the Upper West Side is a great place to bring a date. What better way to break the ice with a new date than enjoying delicious drinks and playful competition? The options are plentiful as the walls are literally lined with every board game you can think of. Tired of getting your butt kicked in board games? Then head to the back room where they have two dart boards to (hopefully) regain your pride. All that Battleship got you feeling hungry? Their menu is full of delicious upscale bar food options. The mac and cheese balls are my favorite!

Best Place to Keep it Cheap
This Hamilton Heights establishment is everything you want from a dive bar, and then some. With games like Giant Jenga & Connect Four, shuffleboard, classic Pac-Man, various pinball machines, Buck Hunter and more, you’re sure to have a great time here. As if that’s not amazing enough, the drinks are ridiculously cheap all the time. With cocktails under $10, beer and shot combos for $6 and all draft beers $5 or less served in a frosty mug per request.
They do have food which is also cheap, such as many variations of grilled cheese, hot dogs, tomato soup, fried Oreos and other bar food options. With that said, I would recommend starting with dinner next door at Harlem Public, their food is amazing, then come next door to At The Wallace for a fun night of games partnered with cheap drinks everyone will love.
Happy Hour - All the time! Those prices are unbeatable!
