Bars: The menu can please just about anybody at any time of day or evening. Think comfort food elevated by more than a few contemporary twists. The hefty drink menu ranges from breakfast drinks to old- and new-school cocktails, plus mixologist approved tea, coffee and milkshake drinks. Canned beer runs the brew gamut from PBR and Rolling Rock to Ska Modus Hoperandi and Avery IPA–and lots in between. There are a few wines as well and, of course, inspired punch variations. But there's a reason social is in the name. This is a place to play with your friends, whether table games, shuffleboard, vintage arcade games, karaoke or bowling–b.y.o. socks or pay $7 for them when you rent your shoes.
Sports Bars: Punch Bowl Social is 27,000 square feet of fun for players and watchers alike with three bars and 16 TVs.

There's plenty to love on the menu every other day and night, too, with many items elevated above traditional bar bites. Note: Take a look at the "punch bowl graveyard" above the bar, where all the vintage punch bowls go to die, or at least be displayed.
