The Silver Ballroom stands out as the hippest place to live out drunken fantasies as a pinball wizard. The interior is slick with bordello red walls, shiny black floors sprinkled with glitter and sparkly charcoal booths. The bar top was handmade by the owners with over 400 local show fliers from years past, and the pinball machines themselves appear well-kept and clean. Expect mainstays such as the late '80s Williams tables, or the more recent licensed machines like South Park. Nearly 20 amusement options line the walls but if gaming's not your thing, just hit the punk rock jukebox, grab Stag or PBR on the cheap plus an Australian meat pie and snag a booth. For those keen on cocktails, the bar provides alluring mixes with equally inventive names, like the Foxy Brown and the Cold War Revival. Go for an Iron Made In Manhattan and try your luck at pleasing Bride of Pinbot. The Silver Ballroom means punks and pinball.
