  • DJ’s, food trucks, and board games, The Royal Palms Shuffleboard knows how to show guests a good time. Walk-ins are always welcome, so bring your friends and don’t be shy! Don’t know how to play? No worries, everyone gets a complimentary lesson!

  • There is never a dull moment at this alley! Located in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, Brooklyn Bowl is a hotspot for NYC locals. Both a concert venue and bowling alley, this space is loaded with delicious snacks and drinks options.

  • As another favorite of Williamsburg locals, Barcade knows how to show guests a darn good time. With a great selection of beer combined with vintage arcade games, could it get any better?
  • Boasting an impressive rotating roster of new, classic, and indie films as well as a delicious dine-in menu, Nitehawk Cinema is an underground movie theater with cult favorites on the big screen. If you’re ever in need for weekend plans, they host gigantic Saturday brunch parties with your favorite cereals too! Don’t worry, you’re always invited.
  • Handmade with fresh ingredients and lots of love, Ample Hills Creamery ice cream features varieties of unique flavors such as Salted Crack Caramel, Peppermint Pattie, and Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.
