Game Zone: Bringing the Knutsford Terrace vibe up a notch, Arena Bar by Zerve lets you watch games — and play them — under one roof.
Look & Feel: Inspired by sports bars in New York City, Arena stretches out across a massive space. There’s ample elbow room at the bar counter and clusters of high tops, where you can sit down and watch a game on one of the 15 enormous LED screens. Meanwhile, competitive types will also want to try their hand at beer pong, pool or darts.
On the Menu: At first glance, Arena has all the makings of a chill sports bar, but there’s more to the menu than Stella ($78) and Guinness ($88). On the cocktail menu, find an old fashioned ($78) and a mai tai ($78), as well as a list of signature cocktails including the Chemical Romance ($68), which packs a punch, literally, featuring juice from pineapples, lemons, blackberries, strawberries and passion fruit. There’s also a shortlist of wine, straight spirits and champers for the rest of you.
Great For: Big groups, anything and everything to do with sports.
FYI: It’s “Buy One Get One” free from 4:30-9pm every day!
