Dave and Buster’s meets Union Square. As terrifying as that may sound, Golden Gate Tap Room is actually a secret paradise. There are tons of beers, the quesadillas and potato skins are very tasty, and there are more TVs than you’d find at a Best Buy. There are also multiple floors, so if you can’t find a good spot downstairs, just keep walking up.
