Cheap beers in cans. Pretzels. Divey hipster atmosphere. SKEE BALL!!!!!!
Yup, a bar dedicated to that world-wide Olympic sport of Skee Ball. Well, not really a sport, or world-wide, but it should be. I remember pumping in many quarters at numerous arcades and seaside boardwalks over the years playing this game. Sometimes I am good at getting the balls in the hole, and sometimes I play like a blind man. It’s always a fun game and kind of addicting as anyone can play it.
Full Circle Bar caters to the Skee Ball community. Yes, they have a dedicated community. Who knew? Damn son, they even have competitive leagues here, trophies, memorabilia case, and a newsletter! Four gloriously pristine Skee Ball lanes. Don’t eff with these ballers as they are serious about their sport!
Pretty good Billyburg hipster beer selection with a few surprises in cans. Walk in, look over the list on the wall with the cans pinned on it, and pick your brew. Genesee Cream Ale/Lager/Light, Young’s Chocolate Stout, PBR, Newcastle, Brooklyn, Butternuts, Sixpoint, Bud, Bud Light, Yuengling and a bunch more. Prices are on the really cheap side with many cans in the $3-$5 range! Beer and shot specials every day along with a happy hour that also includes jumbo pretzels and hot dogs. Trivia night too. A few beers on tap like Stella, Guinness, Blue Point, Goose Island, etc. Really easy to catch a good buzz on the cheap here while enjoying a few rounds of fun Skee Ball action.
The place itself is low-key, dimly lit, with a divey atmosphere which I love. Rock music on the speakers. Everyone here seemed very chill and friendly. Cool spot to hang out as it’s kind of unique in it’s own quirky way. Plus, it’s Skee Ball dammit! Get your game on!
Even funnier was the scene we observed out in the street when we rolled up to this place on the night we were here. Two skinny little hipster dudes started duking it out and one was on a motorcycle wearing a helmet. So you have these two guys whaling on each other and the one guy keeps punching the other on the helmet. One was even smoking a cigarette that never fell out of his mouth. He started whining and screaming at the other guy like a little girl, jumped on his bike, made a few vroom vroom sounds for effect and then sped off. Hilarious good stuff!
It was at that point when we realized we HAD to go in this bar for a beer!
