Blake Street Tavern

Let the games begin! Since 2003, Blake Street Tavern has been scoring big with sports-bar fans, and the best got better when it moved down the block to a much bigger space on 23rd Street. That space came with a huge basement that posed a quandary for the bar, but when owner Chris Fuselier finally decided to turn it into Underground Social, he came up with a winning solution. The spot has its own bar, jukebox, photo booth, games — everything from giant Jenga to shuffleboard to darts — and big-screen TVs, and it's a great place to get away from the crowds upstairs, where there are even more games, TVs and sports fans.
