Ice Cream Run and Bocce Ball

As the rains had us locked indoors most of the day watching movies, we decided to head out for a walk to Uncle Louie G's in the slope to get our chocolate fix on around 10pm. The husband got a thick chocolate shake, and I got my favorite ice with the chocolate bits in it.


On our approach to Union from 6th we noticed a crowd of 20-30 somethings clustered outside of Union Hall Bar. I had read a bit on the various blogs about this newcomer that opened July 9th, but was astounded by the number of people filling the insides and spilling out to the outdoor garden area. According to Brooklyn Vegan, the place is over 6000 square feet with two bocce ball courts, food, and a downstairs 100-capacity music/entertainment room set up by the folks from Magnetic Field.The owners like them some Bocce Ball, as they are also co-owners of Floyd Bar on Atlantic Avenue, home to a year round Bocce Tournament.

Perhaps we'll stop by on a weeknight for a quiet drink to snap some indoor pics and more reporting on the scene. It had a real gentlemans/cigar club look through the window with floor to ceiling stocked bookshelves,jewel toned couches, and portraiture. I wonder if the decor will affect ale choices, or if the reigning beer will be PBR.
