A night at a bar/restaurant doesn't mean you have to stick to dinner and drinks. Check out these hotspots, including some with rooftop views of the city, where you can play games while you sip and snack.
The Clocktower restaurant at renowned hotelier Ian Schrager’s just-opened New York EDITION is already a favorite among in-the-know New Yorkers. Here you'll find a purple-hued billiards table within a stylish room boasting rock-and-roll pictures by legendary photographer Bob Gruen and Polaroid snaps from Maripol. Don’t leave without trying the Cereal Killer cocktail, a sweet bourbon-based tipple served in a glass carton. 5 Madison Ave., 212-413-4200
If you find yourself at The Drift's Game Night Mondays, don't be surprised if you end up challenging your friends to a game of life-sized Jenga. With a beachy vibe and delicious food and drinks (including mini lobster rolls, tuna tacos, rosé, and Coconut Cartel coconuts), this rooftop haunt has everything you need for the ideal summer night out. 420 Park Ave. S., 212-317-2900
At the newly re-opened Chester Biergarten, an indoor/outdoor restaurant on the ground floor of the Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District, revelers can head to the patio and partake in a game of Skeeball while it's still warm enough outside. 18 Ninth Ave., 646-253-2284
At Danny Meyer’s Chelsea watering hole, guests in the mood for some good old-fashioned fun and games have plenty of options. Retreat to the game room to play darts, cards, or board games (classics include Life, Clue, and Boggle) while enjoying a simple, yet perfectly-concocted Sazerac and an order of avocado toast topped with sweet crab and fried oysters. 271 11th Ave., 212-981-6188
Everyone likes a little healthy competition sometimes. And the weekly Tuesday night Bounce Back Bingo at this happening Flatiron lounge will fuel any rivalry. Bonus: prizes include decadent spa packages and bottles of your favorite luxury spirits. 55 W. 21st St., 212-675-8007
This seasonal hangout at the top of the Trump SoHo hotel boasts a refreshing pool, sweeping views, and delicious cocktails. But the real draw is its white gravel bocce court, where guests can channel their inner Italian. 246 Spring St., 212-842-5500
You won't get bored at Sweetwater Social. This Greenwich Village canteen is the perfect place to gather for games like foosball (one of the tables actually belongs to mixologist Tim Cooper), shuffleboard, and more. Fuel up with a Piña Colada or the Delirium AKA the Bill Murray Cocktail, and order the Brussels sprouts flatbread after you've worked up an appetite. 643 Broadway, 212-253-0477
