Over 120 venues into our quest, never did the phrase “does what it says on the tin” apply more perfectly than here. There are a lot of sports in this bar. From pool to darts to table football (or foosball as we Yanks would call it) to competitive eating in their “Man vs. Food” challenges, there’s plenty to participate in. And if you’re more of a spectator, there are about a billion big screen TVs with different feeds, so there should be something for every sport nut.

"You don't happen to have any secret *good* beers hidden back there do you?"

Now, our readers who know us best will know that we’re not sports nuts, and sadly the beer selection was less than worthy of an MVP nomination. You could have a Krušovice on tap, but that’s about it. What’s in the fridge, you ask? Well, let’s just say you might as well order a WKD. No, seriously.

That said, we absolutely did not hate this place. We won’t be rushing back, but we would definitely recommend it if someone was asking for a tip about where to catch and/or play some sports. And even though we were not its typical clientèle by any means, we felt perfectly welcome and comfortable as we enjoyed our mediocre beverages. The atmosphere reminded me distinctly of an American bowling alley — no frills and very come-as-you-are.

And some TVs with sports over there.

Also, if you want to pour your own pint there are a couple of tables with their very own taps! Too bad what’s coming out of them is Heineken and Strongbow.
