Raise The BAR GAMES!


Bar games are loved by many and generally are pretty cheap. Assuming it's not free pool, billiards or darts are generally under $1 a game. Stack on things like Ping Pong and Corn Hole or Shuffle Board, and now you have some (should be) free games you can bank on.
Bar Games are always a great buffer when it comes to lack of conversation topics, too. Naturally, once you're a game or two in, everyone's more relaxed and then things can flow, so it's nice to have that for-sure thing as a fun go-to.

The Overview

WHAT You Need

Simple. Easy. Cheap.

There are a lot of options, but here's a few common ones you should find at most establishments:

  • Pool/Billiards
  • Darts
  • Shuffle Board
  • Ping Pong
  • Board Games
  • Card Games (Uno, Speed, etc.)
  • Corn Hole
  • Pin Ball
  • Bingo

WHEN to do it

Hours of Operation?

Again, like many of the other outings, unless you're skilled at B&E, you'll probably have to stick to regular business hours.

WHERE to go

Yelp & Google to the rescue!

Narrow down the types of games you want to play (for instance, maybe your date is a 1-armed Vietnam Vet... Pool is probably not the best choice in this case)
