When Blake Street Tavern moved a block down Blake Street three years ago, it took over a big space with a great view of the Ballpark neighborhood -- and a really big basement. After several attempts to brand that underground area, it looks like Blake Street has finally come up with a winner: Underground Social, an interactive game area that hosts a public grand opening tomorrow from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The downstairs is now devoted to a giant selection of interactive games, including cornhole, darts, shuffleboard, ping pong, skeeball, Pop A Shot, Big Buck Hunter HD, giant Connect 4, giant Jenga, air hockey and more; if you prefer to watch, rather than play, games, there are eighteen high-def TVs in the space. And Underground Social has its own bar, with 24 drafts on tap as well as weekly drink specials.
