Sure, we know Quentin Tarantino's been busy making the next great western.
But if he ever opened a bar in Uptown, it'd look a lot like Kung Fu Saloon: equal parts nostalgia, booze, all-American food, and a wicked sense of humor.
In the arcade, Galaga and Mortal Kombat headline 20 videogame classics alongside free-to-play SkeeBall, Giant Jenga, Giant Connect Four, and a random assortment of normal-size board games.
At the bar, 24 draft beers and an extensive sake bomb menu. Get the party started with a Rising Sun (Geikeken Sake dropped in Leinenkugel Hefeweizen) or a Longhorne (Pearl Sake dropped in Lone Star with a splash of O.J.).
In the kitchen, Asian-meets-American fare translates into cheeseburger egg rolls, wonton mozzarella sticks, and sweet-and-sour chicken sandwiches.
Then head to one of two private Karaoke rooms.
Wait -- karaoke? Are we sure Tarantino doesn't own this spot?
