Ace Bar consists of one big, long room divided into two semi-separate spaces. Up front there’s a bar, and in the back there are games like skee ball and pool. There are booths in both spaces, but on busy nights you’ll find most people milling around. On weekends, Ace Bar gets crowded, but you can usually carve yourself out some space. Consider this an LES bar in the East Village.
