Everybody's Kung Fu Drinking

Where to enjoy pilsners, pickle shots, and Pac-Man


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: e
qual 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?
