  • Head inside, grab a cheap drink and keep on going through the back door to a spacious canopied patio. They don't serve food, but you're welcome to have a pizza delivered.
  • Come here if you wanna ping pong pang.
  • Who knew? Happy Village doesn't allow babies in the bar. They don't serve their kind
  • I don't really recall this place been all that happy, but I don't think the name "Depressing Village" would be a huge selling point.
  • where i go to be hamms-fisted and pay tribute to the out-of-doors by smoking copious amounts of cigarettes on a glorious patio.
  • Love table tennis? Test your skills against some eclectic locals at one of our favorite dive-bar/packaged goods spots in the neighborhood.
  • Local dive bar with ping pong in the back. Come off hours for a few people milling about or a warm night to hang in the patio. Good spot.
  • Great atmosphere, great hospitality. Ping-pong and a gorgeous patio. Sometimes the owner will play chess with you, too.
  • Phenomenal patio, sassy staff, cheap drinks, and, yes, ping-pong.
  • The patio out back is awesome. Totally unexpected.
  • Jukebox!
  • ask the bartender for roberta
  • Sit outside and smoke. Go inside and smoke someone at Ping Pong. Order beef jerky on a whim and realize it was a huge mistake.
  • The back patio feels like a friend's back yard; I like it.
  • Great back patio in the summer time. Ping pong inside year round.
  • The jukebox has a really eclectic selection. It's a cozy bar.
  • Noon to three for dogs!
  • Wonderful outdoor patio, when the sunshines it's a great spot for drinking with friends and cheap too. Chilled out atmosphere
  • It's very happy
  • Pack some cash, come early on a summer afternoon and colonize one of the long tables under the tents. There's not much point in fighting the crowds here, so bring your own.
