Jake's Dilemma

Perfect For:Big GroupsSports!

The next time you’re feeling nostalgic about your college days, you could build your own beer pong table and throw out your couch to make room for it - or you could go to Jake’s Dilemma. This big bar on Amsterdam Ave feels like the kind of place you might have gone junior year, complete with foosball, pool tables, and, yes, intense games of beer pong. If you want to pay college prices for that pitcher of Shock Top, come during Happy Hour (until 8pm every day).
