The high lite of the week free jazz music shuffle board which we had never played before never laughed so much great fun. And drinks very reasonable

Free jazz is good. Drinks are average prize. 3 buck entry per person. 7 dollars per person per hour for games - which is really expensive. Even to play chess for a couple of hours will cost you 28 bucks!?

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
