The Blind Pig


At this neighborhood watering hole in NoDa, you get to be a kid again with Skee Ball, Jenga, foosball, and the claw all at your disposal -- not to mention a craft beer tap, which arguably makes all of those games (except maybe the claw) better than when you were a kid. A couple of things to note: there's a $1 annual membership fee, and the Blind Pig doesn't serve food. But with plenty of restaurants within walking distance, you have lots of options for pre- or post-drinks snacking.
