Recreation is a communal co-working space and lunch space by day and a cocktail lounge by night - serving as the ultimate living room for the neighborhood. Drawing inspiration from the rec room at your neighbor's house, Recreation features an old school Arcade Machine with games like Ms. Pacman, Centipede and Donkey Kong, Jenga, and - designed to host events or just play ball - a half court-sized basketball court.

Please note, the kitchen closes at 10pm; the last order we take is at 9:45pm.

    I saw another review that said the food was "meh". They were correct. Server seemed put out to actually take our order, bring us our food, didn't check on us once, and to get our bill (once we flagged him down to get it). Just unusually poor service from the server. Hostess & bartenders were great however. They were friendly and helpful and saved the evening for us from being a pretty "meh" experience. A great spot for family with kids as there are a lot of activities to help burn off their energy.

    Relatively good experience for what it was, excellent drink menu. The juicy Lucy was great. Lots of activities that were engaging and the food was okay. The nachos were meh, could use more sauce, the flatbread I ate was pretty fresh and tasty and my friend loved her sliders. I’d likely come again. It is somewhat pricey, not sure the prices are necessarily for the value but you pay for the experience.

    I hosted a group event on a Friday night. The staff was gracious and polite. The vibe was fun and classy. It was nice that there was a DJ. The bites, even the ones that were listed as a little more substantial were on the small side. Overall, my group of people had a blast and really liked the place. We would go here again.

    I loved it there!! I took my girlfriend out on a date there for the first time and I did lose all hope when I saw the menu because I had no clue what the majority of it was but then when we got it oh my gosh it was like heaven on a plate! I just wish it was a bigger proportion for the price. And the games were great and the music ?? every song was a banger
