Take a backyard BBQ and plop it next to a gastropub and you’ve got yourself The Yard. Both Yard locations are anchored by Culinary Dropout, known for creative cocktails and high-quality bar grub. After digging into their signature pretzels and provolone fondue (Fair warning: They’re addictive), grab a cocktail and your pals for a few rounds of bag toss, shuffleboard, ping pong, or foosball.

What isn’t under the roof of The Duce? They’ve got shuffleboard, corn hole, foosball, and….boxing? Their Sunday morning Punch! Crunch! Brunch! gets you an old school boxing workout with a grapefruit mimosa waiting for you at the end. Oh yeah, they’ve got a great food menu, too.
